The reporter of Chongqing Morning Post found that there were two main photos, one is the nearby Qianfo Temple and the other is Raffles City in the distance. The photos have been toned, showing a strong sense of contrast.
The nearby Qianfo Temple retained the color of golden glazed tiles, vermilion column walls and cornices. It is an antique building, especially in the picture.
