the historical Drum Tower of Xi'an, located at the very heart of it. They used to hit the drums at the dusk each day to signify the end of the day. Xi'an is a city filled with history. If you want to see the world renowned Terra-cotta warriors, this is the place to be.

Turquoise & chocolate in night lights work well here - I can see the little figures passing by behind the flashy hand-rail and I enjoy that they give the scale. A superb place you share here, Shoti*

@P J W Miller: hehe I was hoping that with sharpening, no one would notice that. I still don't have a tripod for night shooting so this was taken handheld, thanks for the visit Pete :)

Superb! I adore the contrast of the old form with the blue neon. It's a bit blurry, I admit, but you got the shot and thats what counts I reckon. Nice one shoti!

A fine night shot with excellent control of the reflected light on the top and the actual lights on the bottom.
An impressive image.
