The second shot so reminds me a a scene from some science fiction movie with the enfolding arms slowly revealing a flying saucer.
The second shot really shows a good command of the lighting. The neon sign in the lower right shows how good the exposure is balanced. Normally these signs are easily blown.

The nite shot is an HDR image of 5 or 7 exposures. There was some kind of show in town and Nathan Philips Square was covered with tents. To remove them I created that area at the bottom. Thats why they dont match.

Very nicely done! The night picture really is awesome, so totally different than the day one, yet the same. A very cool looking building.

Reminds me of the Men In Black movie where a space ship was camouflaged as something that looked like a large water tower! Don't be too surprised if the "space ship" in these photos takes off some day! Nice shots.

Im sure the citizens of Toronto would be happy if the "space ship" takes off for the mother planet taking the whole city council with them.
