Shanghai through the lens of my new EOS 7D

Hello All,

I just bought a new Canon EOS 7D this past weekend, and I went out yesterday to the People's Square/Bund part of Shanghai to test it out. Here are some of the results.

Shanghai is such a mashup of confusion in its architecture.

It was a beautiful evening in Shanghai today, so my wife and I took a walk from the Old City to Nanjing Road (E) via The Bund. I took some pictures along the way - these were all taken hand-held (didn't even bring a tripod). Hope you enjoy.

I had the chance to go to Shanghai while living in China, wish I had gone. You are a great photographer man and you show off that damned sexy city well.
