Aperture: f-2.8

Shutter: 1/250 sec.
Galleries: Cityscape, Architecture
Date Uploaded: Oct 7, 2003

This is a partial view of the old City Hall downtown Toronto and the arches over the water in front of it (in winter there is a skating ring in place of water). I shot this hand-held around 6:30 pm - hence the deep beatiful colours.

I've walked by this place hundreds of times and I don't think I have ever seen it look this good.

Great Job.

nice job...great colors and detail!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wonderful color combinations as well as shape differences. I love the contrast of the organic curvature vs the solid angular look of the buildings. I also like how the water though a reflection has deeper tones. Very nice! 7

Awesome reflection, assuming of course that your city doesn't feature an upside-down building surrounded by a sea of blue! :) Very cool effect here.

the tall bldg in the backgound looks overesposed

nice composition, the intensity of the color in the reflection is very good, certainly an urban landscape 8

Beatiful composition and colour. Too bad the arches are chopped off at the ends. The sky is bit overexposed, but the image holds well. One of my favs.

WOW Great Shot. I gave you a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/09/2003 01:26:14 PM
more than the reflections i like the colors. (needs perspective correction - beyond the rules of this challenge though)

Sky is a bit faint - I think levels and/curves would help you darken it without further darkening the water.

The arched form of the bridge turns a pretty but ordinary set of reflecions into a work of art. The lighting is also excellent - it adds brilliant color to the already interesting foreground buildings.

cool!

Stunning light, colors and reflection. IT will really be something when that building in the far-ground is completed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 12:25:37 PM
Nice image. One of the few to successfully take an image where the centered horizon line really works.

Very nice shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 12:17:31 AM
Very nice composition. The only negatives are the shadow being cast on the near building and the white spots on the water. Neither of which I imagine can be avoided though. Nicely done.
