Hi folks;

Here's a shot I took on an early summer trip to Toronto. There's a bit of tweaking (levels, minor posterization, cropping)

Please tell me what you think.

With the exception of the distortion of the buildings on both ends of the photo, I like this image. Nice job post processing. The color saturation is good. Nice bright skies with white clouds. Nice job.

What camera/lens did you use to capture this scene?

Hi there;

This is shot on a Kodak Dx6490, using on added lenses or filters. (I didn't get my wide-angle until after the Toronto trip)

As regards the leaning buildings, I tried a couple of versions with the perspective corrected, and I just seemed to like this one better. To me it gives a sense of the height of the CN Tower.

This is the first shot I took that really felt like a good shot.

Thanks for the comments. All the best,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

Great photo, I think maybe .2 of CW rotation would fix that leaning building. I firts noticed the water on the bottom and it seemed that the right side was thicker that the left. Then i read your comment about the leaning building and knew it wasn't my eyesight haha. Very good picture though, nobody notices these things except for photographers hehe. Just thought I'd give my 2 cents.

Thanks for the comments, folks. I had almost forgotten about this thread. I think I might have another go at this one when things are a little less hectic. (I'm doing some community theatre this month... time is a luxury... check out www.theatrealive.com )

Thanks again,
