Nice pic Boily.............:-) Nice composition!!!!!!:G

were you using your TCON 17 for this pic?????


Boily Aug 17, 2006 10:26 PM

No teleconverter for this shot...Only around 3x zoom ;)

shooting_rubber Aug 17, 2006 10:28 PM

Were you actually on Mont Royal?????? And if you used your teleconverter, you could of only sed about 1.5X Zoom and it would be eqivalent to 3X Zoom...


Boily Aug 17, 2006 10:33 PM

Yes I was on the Mont-Royal:-)

And I can't use the tcon17 with only 1.5x zoom because there is some vignetting until you reach the 6x or 7x zoom ;)

How long did it take to get up there??????


Boily Aug 17, 2006 10:44 PM

I went with my mom and we parked the car in a parking lot on the Mont-royal!!

After we walked for about 5 minutes and we arrived to this place:-)

I should think about doing this if I ever go there at night though.:G


Boily Aug 17, 2006 10:52 PM

Boily, the place where you live almost makes me jealous enough to learn French and move there. Not quite though, I tried learning French once, it was horrible:blah:

Boily Aug 18, 2006 12:31 AM

Thanks morag:-)

Thats like my english lol :lol:

Morag2 Aug 18, 2006 12:43 AM

Haha, well at least you can type it. I know how to introduce myself in French, ask how somebody is and then I learnt the words for "I don't know" which I feel provide a suitable answer for every other part of the conversation:lol:

Looks like Monreal must have changed a bit between 1967 and now. :-)

Anything left of the World's Fair?

im Ebnglish but used to live in detroit, i toured canada and some of the scenery in southern canada is jawdropping. Lucky Boily has such natural beauty on his door step. nice pic boily- night shots are great in my opinion and very hard to nail. :cool::cool::|

Great shots as usual Boily! Mont Royal is such a cool little hill, especially in the winter... great X-country skiing!

Regarding French.... Quebecois dialect is to French like Cockney is to English!

Boily Aug 18, 2006 10:43 AM

Thanks everyone for the comments :cool:

And I have to say that in montreal almost everybody speak french and english ;)

Beautiful shot, Boily


Boily Aug 18, 2006 3:34 PM

Thank you Dan :-)

Stunning skyline Boily. Long exposure?? These are starting to remind me of some of ColdSnail's night shots!


Boily Aug 20, 2006 12:05 AM

Thanks dawg, Yes I used long exposures, I think 13 sec and set the white balance at artifial light :-)

bigdawg Aug 20, 2006 11:27 AM

That's where I miss out I guess as I usually leave it on Autio WB! Thanks for the Tip. Have to try that out soon!
