I like them. If you try to do the same towards the end of the day, you'll get warmer tones and reflections.

Well I was there during late afternoon sun. Here is one of the reflections off a building whose windows actually have gold embedded in them.

I like the idea but for me there is too much going on. Maybe focus in on one particular set of windows and play with the angles, reflections, lighting and such. This has real potential. Looks like you'll need more trips to the big lights to hone your skills and that's a good, thing is it not?

Very nice. I like #1 a lot, #2 does have a lot going on, but it did keep me looking at it for a probably the longest, (to figure out where one building stops and another begins.) 3's my favorite. Talk about capturing light. Is that the same building as in the foreground of the tower shot?

Thanks guys. The only building which is in 2 shots is the tall black one with all the windows and the bold black stripe. The curved building in the last picture is Roy Thompson Hall. It was one of the venues of the Toronto Film Festival that nite. I saw and photographed Naomi Watt, Kelly Washington and Jimmy Smits. I saw them quite by accident as they were entering the Hall.

bynx,

Great, great photos. You've found the exact verticals for the first two. The third, although it has obvious qualities, gives me a slight headache

Don't we all struggle with angels, sorry, angles
