  Photographer found comment helpful.

Ecstasy! A ribbon, wow. Thank you to everyone that voted, and all the great comments. I will try to post an out-take that has more of the lake in the frame...in my own final analysis, I felt the sky more than the water.

Now, how can I possibly follow this act?? Gonna have to set my goals high, I guess.
08/22/2007 01:06:53 AM

Very pretty landscape. Cool lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Of the thousands of Toronto photos, this one really moved me, sent shivers up my spine. Very dramatic. Painting-like quality. Worth framing and hanging on my wall. I vote it #1.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/20/2007 02:34:10 PM
Beautiful shot. I wonder what it would look like with a little less sky and a little more water.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/20/2007 12:23:51 PM
A truly dramatic sky offset by the bright colorful lights really makes this image moody. I like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/20/2007 09:55:47 AM
I'm loving this.. One of the best ones for sure. Love the skyline and the colours of the lights, combined with the powerful sky... excellent capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2007 03:32:42 PM
wow what a killer sky and reflection!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2007 12:26:44 PM
GREAT exposure! really precise, and well balanced
however, It seems that the water had something to say in this story. Why not make a 3 parts pic in a sort-of vertical triptique?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/18/2007 06:45:10 AM
Excellent clarity, contrast, and a great sky. Definitely gives the shot "punch" - would make a great postcard.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/17/2007 11:43:17 PM
Very nice. I'm bumping this up from my original vote. I appreciate the composition as cropped but I wonder if you lost something with so little water showing. I only say this because the colors in the water making a quasi-rainbow might have been more interesting than the negative space above. I still give it an 8 as is.

Great time to take this shot, nice sky, lights of the buildings are on
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/17/2007 04:21:56 PM
simply cool. the dramatic sky, perfect exposure for city lights and light reflection are my favourite parts. 10
btw i wish you had included water a little more though.

Beautiful!

Fantastic! This is how a skyline image is supposed to look. I wish I could pull mine form this challenge. I can't wait to see how this was exposed and pp-ed. Some may consider the burnouts a bit harsh, but that is the only knock.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/15/2007 03:59:47 PM
Oh this one is getting a 10 from me for sure!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/15/2007 11:05:28 AM
Could be a magazine or city publication photo.

Pretty reflections in the water. Nice night capture.

A little too much sky for my taste...but a lovely skyline...7
