Tiananmen Square.

    Flowers in Tiananmen Square and the entrace to the Forbidden City, Beijing. We spent the last few days of our Trans-Siberian Railway holiday in Beijing. It looks like Autumn but that is smog and it was, in fact, in the nineties.

      Jenny - that's what we were told - that September - October were the best times to visit Beijing - winter was cold and smoggy, spring was cold and sand blew in from the desert, summer was hot and smoggy. We had clear, blue sky there, and temperatures in the low eighties at most.

      Nice photo in spite of atmosphere.

      Not sure how I can get rid of the dots. Maybe on the inside of the camera.

      If the dots are dust particles inside the camera you can blow then away with a dust blower brush. It sounds more difficult than it is. But it is only possible with an SLR camera.
      Otherwise try the clone stamp.....

      Great take on this historic place. I really like how you have filled the foreground with the beautiful garden.

      I love the huge "balls of flowers"! Something I've never seen here!
      Beautiful in spite of the spots. <3
