Angle suggests it was taken from the main public observation deck on Baiyun Mountain.

This would look really good with flood lighting from the setbacks.

Guangzhou has one of the most beautiful skyscrapering skyline, but also many pedestrian areas enriched in green parts - the city center seems to be completed (or almost completed) already in opposite to many other Chinese big cities' centres, which are still big construction sites. The river sorrounded by green boulevards and the bridge perfectly complete Guangzhou big city composition

That's because it stands much closer to the photographer.

Something a bit more traditional would have looked far better against that skyline.

That example would look completely out of place against the futuristic skyline.

With the correct proportions, old and new blend seamlessly

That bridge in a contemporary, yet traditional design that will work very well against a skyline like Guangzhou's

Certainly better than the filthy egg bridge they have now.
