Photo Tour: Shanghai Fake Market

Near the end of my time in China last December I decided to head to one of Shanghai’s "fake markets" for some last minute Christmas gifts. While I had been to the various markets around the city before, this time I brought my camera.

Shanghai Fake Market
Watch! Bag! DVD?!

Whenever approached by street hawkers, I started taking photos of them.
They stopped trying to sell me things pretty quickly.

This is a response to the last panoramic i posted. It is taken overlooking the Hong Kong skyline from the Kowloon side, opposite that of the previous one which was taken on the Hong Kong peak. I used a total of 3 horizontal shots from my 30D and Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM, it was combined in Photoshop CS3 using Photomerge. Be sure to view the larger one to get the full effect (1.08MB).
