Nice, sharp, colorful shots. Wish #2 showed a fuller view of the building.

Don't ya know. It's always a decision between a close crop and a wider view. I was thinking exactly that when I posted the tighter view. And for those that don't know, Yorkville was the Toronto equiv of Haight-Ashbury/Greenwich Village in the 1960's. Now it's among the top 5 most expensive retail spaces in North America. A little of the Victorian past has been preserved.

A couple more. This is it I promise. What I'm finding is that if I can get the right balance between ambient and tungsten, the buildings look so much better than in daylight.

Haven't seen better architecture shots than these. The sharpness is amazing and colors are spot on. Well done.
