"The BCE Place"

This is my favorite place in downtown Toronto. With its super high ceiling and magnificent structure between The Wellington and The TD Canada Trust towers, it is an awsome place to be.

Particularly in this sunny Monday morning, where you could see the gentle sun rays coming in as to produce a golden touch in the whole environemnt.

Too difficult to find a proper title to express that moment and that feeling...

PP: rotate, saturation, brightness, contrast, USM, small cropping.
Re-size, USM, save for web.

A great job of capturing the image without getting any people in the shot ... very difficult and well done.

I love the angle. Gives the shot all kinds of extra energy.

I'm amazed that I never heard of this place. I live in Guelph and get to T.O. fairly regularly but didn't know about this thing.

Nice work.

Complex, but great use of the subject, and perspective. The diagonal shot works better than a level one. Fits the challenge, and that gets it an extra point.

Neat find - makes you look twice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

oh wow:) this is stunning! I would love to know how you managed to catch the light so nicely, with the walls still remaining light and the light is still soft? :)

Dramatic. Not ordinarily a fan of this sort of thing, but your use of the diagonal orientation makes me look.

A dynamic sweep though I believe the theme could of still be captured with a straight up.
