Greetings;

Here's the result of of planning and luck in one shot. (You be the judge...) On my trip to Toronto in July I imagined a shot of the CN Tower reflected in the windows of a neighborhood building, hoping for a more intimate impression.

I walked around about a dozen city blocks looking for the right building to reflect Toronto's landmark. This wasn't it, but the window washer made the choice more interesting.

What do you think?

COOL photo. Shame the traffic wires are in view. I like that the window washer is there. Adds to it!

wow....that window washer/ reflection combo is GREAT!

i don't mind the traffic lines...but i think you should crop out the OOF building to the right..and then keeping the same ratio of height to width crop some off the bottom...

great idea btw..

OK... I posted the wrong one... I did crop out the building on the right, but I kept the streetcar wires... They're part of the Toronto experience.

Here's the fix... not a great deal different. Just a little cleaner. This shot was kind of difficult to manage. Because my primary subject was a reflection, I couldn't change my position by more than a few inches without losing the whole shot. The part on the right could not be avoided in the photo, and I did crop it from my first edit,I just posted the wrong image.

BTW, thanks for the comments.

P.S. There were lots of reflections to choose from... only one window washer though.
