Default Buildings on or near Yonge Street, Toronto

We walked from the Finch Street subway station along Yonge Street to take a few pictures of this downtown area of Toronto. The weather that day was somewhat strange with fast moving clouds and the sun was peeping in and out of the clouds. Some of the pictures had nice blue sky whereas the others just looked cloudy.

Unusual, but attractive processing. I like these very much. In a couple of them, I would have gone a bit farther in darkening the sky.

I wish I knew you were going to be in town. I would have been happy to give you the tour.

Thanks for the comments, guys! I don't use very heavy duty post processing software like Photoshop. The first 2 pictures could use some burning-in to make them better. You may say it is hard for this old dog to learn new tricks. So much to learn and I am just scratching the surface.

Bynx, thanks for the offer! Too bad I didn't know you live in the Toronto area or else I could make contact with you. Toronto is a lovely city and I like it very much and perhaps I will visit again in the future. I was staying with with my uncle in Scarborough attending his daughter's wedding. I only stayed there for 4 days because the wife had to go back to work.

Wow, these are Toronto? Seems my wife is correct when she tells me I'd have a hard time recognizing downtown. Typically it takes an out-of-towner to point out what you have been missing. Thanks for the scenes, might wander downtown as a result. Hope you enjoyed your stay

Thanks! Toronto is a wonderful city! I really wanted to stay longer but ended up only staying for 4 days because the wife had to go back to work. I enjoyed the stay very much.
