I really and truly like the last one Daniel...Light poles and all. You just don't see this type of architecture being made these days as they are all going for the glass wall effect. I'd say it has charm!! I've put roofs on some like this. Kinda hairy even with the right equipment!

I'm not sure I explained myself very well - I love your first two. I thought you were very successful with both of them, blending the reflection lineswith the lines of the building. I was only trying to decide which one I liked best - the more classic vertical/horizonal lines of the first one (to me more ordered and calm) or the second one with it's angles (the perspective from shooting up) which adds something like dynamic movement. When I wanted to use the word "disturbing" I was thinking about the fact that it's out of the ordinary, not ordered, not calm. It's actually rather exciting. I still can't make up my mind which I like best, and that's more a reflection of my tastes changing, not your excellent photography (I've been trying to take things at angles and trying to break out of my usual calming, ordered landscapes and flowers - this month's challenge topic has been pushing me out there looking for new subjects).

Last one in the series is my favorite. You should plan to return to the same location and photograph it when the scafolding & green nettingis removed (I presume some construction in progress). I am sure it will then qualify for as being a picture postcard!! Excellent composition on this one. Jay

Daniel. I also like the last shot as well. Used to have a great pub in the lower level. If you Google "Gooderham building" there is info on its history.

Being a Torontonian, I am so uninformed about that it is actually a historic site. I just thought it was interesting photography-wise. Being declared a historic site, it should be able to get rid of those light pole and signs as well. What a pity that it is surrounded by ugly signs and light standard.

dwssas : thanks for letting us know

Jelpee already wrote what I was thinking.

As I wrote in the other thread, City architecture photography is a field where you excel, Daniel.

Thanks for the positive comments. Using a zoom is different and certainly has the benefit. Except sometimes I get confused with the FoV. All the building I photographed are famous architectual showpieces and I have got good raw material.
