Long men in Chinese means "dragon gate" and Longmenhao is a place in Chongqing on the south bank of Yangzi river. On the background in Yuzhong - the downtown of Chongqing. The sun had already set and the colours looked so bland that I decided convert this into BW.

After reading the caption, this photo is somewhat a visual pun . I get multiple reactions to the image and find the subject captivating.
Great work as always.
