Onlooker -> Thanks.

Bynx -> I do believe the QEW is on the left in the picture. We were on the Lakeshore going eastbound from the CNE.

You make a boring street look interesting.

Very interesting shot. Can you show us the original and tell us what you did. Also, what the heck are QEW and CNE?

Oops, I probably should have explained QEW and CNE. The location of the shot is Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

From Wikipedia:

The Queen Elizabeth Way (locally referred to as the QEW, QE, or Queen-E) is a 400-Series freeway in Ontario, Canada. It links Buffalo, New York, USA and the Niagara Peninsula with Toronto and its western suburbs. The freeway starts at the Peace Bridge in Fort Erie, Ontario and continues for 139 kilometres (86 mi) through Niagara Falls, St. Catharines, Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville and Mississauga before ending at the junction of Highway 427 and the Gardiner Expressway in Toronto. The QEW is one of Ontario's busiest highways with close to 200,000 average trips per day.

Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), aka The Ex, is an annual event held at Exhibition Place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The CNE grew out of an annual late summer fair at a time when Toronto was the centre of a farming community. It is Canada's largest fair and the fourth largest in North America, with an average annual attendance of 1.3 million.

Here is the original photo:



I loaded it into GIMP 2.6.

I used the Edge-Detect filter and then converted it to grey-scale.


Thanks guys.

P.S. The tall pointy thing in the picture is the CN Tower. It used to be the tallest free standing structure in the world on land before the Burj Dubai was built.

I like the effect and the contrast.
