that's is not good, nor pretty. The orange colour is caused by pollution. If i'm correct, it should be due to an overly large amount of sulfer in the air.

No, the color of dusk in Guangzhou is always like that ,no matter the weather is good or not.
Actually the sky was very clear when these photos were taken.

If googleabc is correct by his saying that it is not pollution because every day is like that regardless of the levels of pollution, the beautiful cerise and orange gradient you see is probably due to a high atmospheric humidity.

That depends on how you define pollution. Visible partical pollution is only one type of pollutants, most pollutants in the air is either non-visible, or can only be made possible under certain conditions. The "blue-sky" days is, unfortunately, no another word for "good air". It may be good weather, however, good weather only means a lack of stormy weather, not pollution.

As with humidy, it is a cause of the red orange colour, but not the only cause. light travels in striaght lines, and once it hits particles in the air, it gets bounced around. Long story short, as light travels through atmosphere and gets bounced around from particle to particle, the shorterwave length colours such as blue gets spread more scarce, to the point that all it is left will be the longer wavelength colours such as red and orange. This is why the sun appears orange at sun sets, because as it drops lower under the horizon, it travels through more air. BUT, as the sky becomes more polluted, more particles exist for light to travel through and get bounced around. So the redder the sky is at sunset, the more particles exists in the air, and some times it can be humidy, but many other times it is pollution. Someone should varify this, as I'm no expert in anything that has to do with what I just wrote about.

Anyways, if the air is non polluted, sun raises and sun sets should be, unfortunately, rather dull. In my opinion that is.

and also anyways, I'm going off topic. And I apologize.

Sorry, but Guangzhou's dusk was already like that before the economic reform which brings the pollution. I am not sure where you are, but I believe you never live in the area close to the tropic of Cancer

Actually I feel the dusk in Guangzhou is the best one I have seen in so many big cities I have visited, including many north america cities. Sometimes it is also called "Fire Burn Clound".

Orange looks pretty but yes it IS related to pollution. Doesn't matter whether it was or wasn't before, it is now. As polluted as Hong Kong unfortunately, if not more.

Anyways Citic is looking a lil bit outdated but these new museums and towers are super sexy. Can't wait to visit all of them when they're all done!
