Definitely one of my favourite images in the challenge and I honestly believed it would finish on the front page.

Great DOF and a wonderful presentation.

Nice to see that you are up on your Mohawk history and know where the name Toronto originated from.

Very Nicely Done.

Thank you! :)

In previous challenges I have wondered that, but I didn't get any comments during voting regarding the similarity, so I don't think it made any difference in this challenge. Besides, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' wolf's shot has a much different feel to it because of the zoom blur. I think his shot is incredible.

I like this photo. I think I would like the compostion moreif there were more sky about the tower but I am not sure if that would have worked from this angle of view. I like the capture of colors and the way the sky fades to dark toward the left.

Brilliant shot. Love the light streaks on the road and the effect on the cloud.

A nitpick would be that the image has too much of yellow/orange tones.
