that is so cool. man, i'm jealous of all the great views of the city you have!
SAM = what an exciting possibility! (Top Image)I'd love to see this wonderful effort executed again - leave out the shadow lines between. . .
WOW! This one is AMAZING! I love it. I can't see how you could improve it! Very nice work sam.
PS. Open up the forum!
I should say, it is creative, spectacular, and very beautiful. I love the time frame..It has a harmony..
Cool. Very Cool. Great idea, well executed.
Wow thats amazing. Good work.
just awesome!! astounding..
That's creative! Would you add a version without the shadow at the edges of strips?!
Very cool series. It's been about 15 years ago, but I think I lived very close to this place. Somewhere near Bay and Dundas or so. Toronto rocks.
nice! i love the 'interactive' ones.
Insipiring and brilliant work.
Sam, no words! I just love the way you play!!
Very creative. Nice shots and nice concept.
This is great! Great idea, and great realization of this idea!
very cool! it makes me feel like I was granted the power to switch on and off the lights in downtown Toronto ;)
Aw man - that rollover on the bottom is awesome! Truly inspiring.
Great pix (and cool flash effect, too). Have been in toronto nearly 10 years ago, unfortunately only a few days ;) oliver, germany.
I've never seen like this photo before... is it your new brainstorm again?...
سلام . خيلی جالب بود .
من شما رو به وضوح يادم می ياد توی جشنواره های فيلم فجر دهه هفتاد مخصوصا نیمه اولش خیلی می دیدمت . البته شما منو نمی شناسی . بعدتر ها یک سری از دوستام دوستان آشنا و صمیمی شما در اومدند . آخرين باری که دیدمت اگه اشتباه نکنم البته اصلا روز خوبی نبود . اولين عکسی که ازت ديدم هم هروقت يادم مي یاد دلم ريش می شه . اون روز مراسم مزدک بود و عکس همون عکس توی مراسم بود که بچه ها می گفتند شما گرفتی . الان که فکر می کنم يادم نمی ياد اون روز بودی يا نه ؟ ببخشيد اگه ناراحتت کردم . فقط خواستم سلامی عرض کنم و بگم خيلی وقته فتو بلاگت رو چک می کنم و عسکهات رو خیلی دوست دارم . موفق باشی و سلامت . سلام برسون
یه سوال لینک ثابت پست روز رو پيدا نکردم می خواستم صفحه امروزت رو برای یکی دو نفر بفرستم .
Nice cityscape @ different hours
I've been visiting your blog daily for over two years. This is the coolest post in all that time. Such a great idea.
damn, this is awesome. great idea dude. i guess i have to do something similar :) wonderful!!! for me it's the shot far right. great colorspectrum.
Bay & Dundas? :-D
It's really beautiful!
Wonderful execution of a good idea. =)
Sensational (literally). An entertainment benchmark just as much as a set of superb images.
Great composition. You are very patient!
I'll try it in Barcelona. Great idea.
That's a really cool and innovative effect. If anything, though not a traditional photograph, I prefer the Flash version. Each large image has its own merits as a cityscape composition, with a sense of motion complemented by the transitions, whereas the top combined one seems to me a bit awkward to look at, and doesn't quite "tell a story" in the way the lower one does.
brilliant! really, i love your ideas and pictures...!
Thats amazing!! How did you do that?
واقعا بی نظیره . خیلی زیباست . سبز باشی.
You've really outdone yourself this time Sam. This is absolutely stunning.
I love it! It's funny because I was planning a time lapse experiment, and something like this and you beat me to it! Wonderfull photos, and displayed perfectly.
Great shot love the progression.
Fantastic idea. Your work is truly impressive.
You've done it again...WOW! So cool! Stunning work.
This is very impressive! I subscribe to the daily dose of imagery and this is by far my favourite!
That is very cool. I love the strips image with the drop shadows and there's perfect skies in all shots. Interesting to watch all the cars appear and disappear from the frame in the flash version. I love to see more using this technique.
Not only are your photos fantastic you also present them in a creative way. Moving the mouse over the 2nd photo is so innovative!!!
Keep 'em coming!! I really enjoy your work and look forward to it everyday!!
Sam, I love the innovations you come up with. Extremely well presented.
Another great idea and execution. Well done.
This is an amazing "photo". Nice photoshop work putting it all together.
This one was very well done Sam...
Sam this is up there with the coolest things you've posted. I absolutely love the splitscreen time lapse effect that you've put together. And adding the flash control below is a nice touch. Well done.....Well done.
One word, (WOW!) Very Creative way of displaying a time elapse.
freakin' awesome ... i love time lapse stuff
My first thought when I saw this pic was "Woooo, neat". I took awhile to look at all the detail in the picture and watched how it changed when I moved my mouse. Cool! I like it.
Sweet shots Sam. I love the way you presented the six shots upfront and then the bottom shot is really cool with the mouse over. Nice work.
I like the color presented in each shot. I like the latter shots the best, especially the last one. All the building lights are on and it really looks good to me. Thanks for sharing this great idea.
I'm a regular visitor from Germany, and todays photo is really gorgeous! I love the changing colours of the sky and the cloud formation ...
Great work :-)
Greetings to Toronto & Canada from Germany!
PS: I would die for a high resolution version of theese six pictures for my TFT ;-)
This would make a really gorgeous desktop wallpaper, if the original images are big enough.
Either way, excellent shot. I love Toronto and am never disappointed by your cityscapes.
Brilliant work! Is this another using pclix?
Gorgeous! I'm definitely going to need a print of this!
Totally awesome. I love it.
Hi Sam! I have to say that I am fascinated with your love for Toronto. I was presented with your web site a couple of months ago by a friend and I check it every day for an early morning smile. I have even sent your site to family in friends back in Venezuela (where I am from) so they can admire our new home. My husband and I moved to Canada just 8 month ago and I am in love with the city. Thank you for inspiring us every day with your vision of it. :-)
thats one of the most amazing things ive ever seen
Beautiful photo and idea! I love the changes in color (especially the unexpected orange reflecting off the building in the last shot), and the rhythm that the whole thing has. What a great idea!
This is an ingenious idea and an awesome composition. Much better than yesterday. This is what I'm talking about. Great work. :)
WOW! that is one truly amazing piece of work ;)
the flash thing is awesome :P
I wish I had a view like that (damned sheffield and its bloody huge hills around every corner :@)
Doesn't that bus (lower right corner) ever move?? ok, but My God, this is f--king cool....
I like the urban feel and colours of the image. Very nice.
its so simple...and so beautiful.... love it
What a photo! I guess that is all I can say.Amazing.
i have made your photoblog my homepage. your images inspire me.
WOW! this is really cool what you've done..!!!! GREAT WORK!
Amazing pictures and presentation. Great work!
You keep coming up with such innovative ideas. How much time do you spend thinking about every new post?
The shadowed edges are a really cool idea. Without them, I imagine the splices would be distracting. This is something you likely observed, which is the reason for adding the shadows. Right?
This two-hour photo series was a bold undertaking. You have some beautiful cloud patterns and rich night colors. This would be very chancy if the view was not painstakingly studied days in advance. Good job -- both in execution and presentation.
Woaw... this really is a very cool setup. A great view you have there and this is very, very, very nicely executed! Top notch!
Interesting take on a timelapse.
so awesome! I LOVE your photos every day!
This is fantastic I will have to try this myself sometime except I won't have a view like yours to capture. The view out of your apartment is amazing I guess it more than makes up for not having any outdoor space!
some of us have been given the gift of sight. it is a true blessing. you've highlighted this blessing very well today. thank you.
[back to goofy mode]
me want more like this. good. yay.
Somedays I really do hate you. :)
it's amazing how the city completely changes at night.
I'm a big fan but don't usually comment. All your photos are great but some are just fantastic, and this is definitely one of them. Wish you the best.
A truly inspiring cityscape. Telling the story with photos through time makes it easier to connect to. I hope I will try this someday, thanks!
Sam, this 'strip' business calls for a full-on art project. Presenting 12 hours in one photo was an amazing idea.
I love the flash image below, it's a very neat technique.
What came to mind while I was watching this was:
This would make a really neat light/frame.
You know those pictures that have lights behind them and it looks like they are moving?
The street and building lights would come on as it got darker.
That would be really fantastic!
Now that's really using the time sequencer to a good advantage. I find it curious that one bus on the street at lower right seems to have parked there all this time, with only a few vehicles moving about the area during all this.
While the top group of panels - and they realy look like panels of photos here - is good, the flash presentation is marvelous.
You're obviously having lots of fun wiht the Pclix.
That is absolutely amazing.
This has to be one of my favorites. Each frame has an absolutely amazing shot. Just wondering, but did you use the bus in the lower right as a reference for when to shoot, or was it just not moving all day? Either way -- great work.
Loving that! Beautiful photos and timelapse!
Keep up the inspiring work.
Stupendous work as always, Sam!
Outstanding work yet again Sam! What a great idea and it's executed to perfection.
You get 5 stars on this one, and an A+!
OH my goodness this is ridiculously awesome. wow...wow i'm still amazed. loove the colours. your pictures make me happy :)
Something just occurred to me--you should see what happens combining the six photos with a program like Photomatix to create an HDR images...that plus some tonal mapping, would probably turn out something pretty neat!
Amazing idea, all of the photos individualy are excellent - the way you joined them though I love!
Holy COW! This is some of the best stuff I have ever seen. If anyone else has seen better stuff I would love to see it as well. Please shoot me a message.
great work, looks very nice with that flash image.
this is a creative work :)
Sam, Spectacular! How clever! Congratulations!
a wonderful result of a great idea!!!
wow, that looks amazing! Great job. I'd love to see it again in future photos, although possibly without the shadows inbetween? looks fantastic though, very nice.

nice sequence. it has a great effect
Like the idea behind the composite shot, works nicely.
This is superb .I believe you and Talayeh were riding along Shuter yesterday I may stop you and have a little chat don’t be surprised.
I loved that
Is your best work
Very very nice! All of them are very good... I love the sky, particularly in pictures 2 and 5.
Cool shots. The effect makes it look like vertical blinds. Normally I find blinds tacky, but if I ever saw some in stores like this, I'd hang them on my window.
Amazing ! It made my day !
Very creative, awesome stuff!
I'm gonna go out on a limb and say this is the greatest thing I've seen. EVER. lol. and that's not hyperbole.
AMAZING idea, one of the most creative pieces ive seen in a long time. Theres something about the shadow lines that i really feel adds to it. Could you possible post a wallpaper version?
My jaw literally dropped...
that bus right at the intersection is there in all the shots =O! ooh the excitement. lol, great work though!
Sam, this is incredible! Any chance of a wallpaper sized version?
i absolutely LOVE this shot
and i love the way you set it up.
very inspiring and impressive
god, I could literally look at this for hours... you have such an astounding grasp on the medium... the first picture is just amazing, so graceful and full of beaty, and the second is so specifically digital.. for and onyl viewable on a computer... awesome...
WOW I love it!!! its a wicked idea! How did you get it look so good in photoshop?
That is absolutely stunning!
So. Brilliant. I love this one. Can't stop smiling at it.
LOOOOOVE IT! Beautiful photo!!!
YA SE, QUE TODOS TE ESCRIBEN, SOBRE LO BONITO DE TUS FOTOS, Y SI!! ES FENOMENAL, PERO ADEMAS EL CONCEPTO DE TU SITIO ES MUY BUENO, ME GUSTARIA ALGUN DIA TENER UN SITIO COMO ESTE...SALUDOS DESDE CHIAPAS,MEXICO
FELICIDADES!! GRAN TRABAJO,EXCELENTE MATERIAL, SALUDOS DESDE CHIAPAS,MEXICO.
No doubt, this work is a sample of passion... Excellent, congratulations again!
I'm so jealous of you. Very well done. Thanks for the teaching indirectly how to be different.
Great idea, man!! The colors are awesome in them. :)
Sam, you amazing me yet again. You can set the mood and evoke emotion like no other daily photoblogger I've come across (not to mention do cool things like this!) BRAVO!!
THIS IS WHY YOU ARE THE MASTER!!!
I love the way the colors transition in the sky in this. Great work! Always a pleasure visiting your site everyday Sam! Keep it up!
Amazing, amazing work. Well done.
you found it!!! the diffrence between to see and to look at.
Ta da da da da... I'm lovin' it!
u r too good.i am ur big fan......

Brilliant work man!!!
Wow!!! Amazing!! I'm speechless!!
This is amazing piece of creativity.. Keep up the good work :)
The coolest thing is that in the last two pictures, you can see the planet Venus setting.
wow ! astonishing ..DAMET GARM
Sam -- u da man!!!!!!!
Thank you very much for the amazing view and the innovative approach in the flash creation below.
Not only do we all need to thank you for gifting the world with the views through your lens, maintaining the site (which itself must be quite a task), and top it off with such innovations!
impressive photographic presentation and very by the way.
Holy crap this is AMAZING!!!!! Great view! Great idea! Great photos.
I still like the original one, which has the shadow line, since it makes me feel this is not a flat picture. It is fancinated to me as it is like a Chinese folding screen. Thank you for your wallpaper size version and I've filled it into my laptop screen. However, I hope I could have the original one.
Great work and keep on enlightening us :)
Wouahhh Such an awesome shot !
Very good idea and technical success. Congragulation
Wow. That is such an awesome idea! Great job!
wow great job sam! tells you a lot about night pollution doesn't it..
What a terrific shot Sam!
Sam, I hope you don't mind, but I posted this photo on my blog (gave you credit and linked back). It's such an amazingly creative piece that I couldn't help but share it. Bravo!
Fantastic! I haven't been checkin photoblogs as much lately but I plan to cath up. This is fantastic, I look forward to trying out some night photography and different time stuff. I love the way you didn't jus try to blend it you mae each time frame a segment. You have not only a photographer's eye but true imagination.
Sam, this is absolutely beautiful! I have so got to move to Toronto! The Toronto Visitor's Bureau ought to be paying you for your work ;)
that's great..i'm realy jalous!
wow, this is totally awesome!
WOW! This is gorgeous! I am in awe. I swear I cannot get over this! Great work!
This is absolutely amaizing! I wish that I had to patience to even attempt some of the things that you've done here! You have wonderful work.
Stunning what more can I say… WOW
You have a wonderful view =)
Words can't describe. breath taking.
this is definitely one of your coolest shots @ ddoi
This is seriously excellent. Gobsmacked, I am - and the flash movies is also cool.
ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT! I love to travel and through your blog I get an amazing worldview!
Wonderful images. I love it that these took place at the same spot you captured the lightening 3 Aug. Your photography is very, very cool. Thanks.
Beautiful! Any chance you could release a high resolution picture of the 5th frame?
Man, this is just too good! Love the concept and the way you presented it!
you are simply great
those photos are awesome
keep it up!
Holy crap, this is so awesome!!!!! I've never seen this type of experiment before, and I am amazed. Really neat idea! Great job!
You are so talented!
Nice work, I think it looks amazing! Great idea
your presentation is excellent
Whoa! That was fabulous and beautiful fun. I can't believe I have never seen this technique used before, like a digital flip book! What a great idea. I would love to see more even more than six shot combined! Great work.
had to comment on this...
really absolutely nice shoot... although i hate cities but this is cool
^-^ well done!
This... is.... awesome!
GREAT idea... and very nice effect.
Fabulous shots... The idea of combining them in such a way is pure genius!
And the colors look soooo great!
Very inspiring work, to say the least.
Wow. so very cool! Inspiring...
Great pictures! I had the opportunity to visit Toronto last winter, and I loved it! It´s a fabulous city, so nice and colorful... I would like to go back again someday.
Thanks for make me remember such a wonderful place.
Greetings from Chile!
Yeah, it's truly a wonderful job. Congrat's on your fine work.
This made my day. And it was an otherwise hard day, thank you.
Damn. Very nice concept. Couldn't go without saying something. Good job Sam.
Wow.. what a way to show your images!! Great work.
that is not only really clever but really beautiful. great image
I think this is a genius photograph - beautiful outcome. Definately going down as my wallpaper.
Wow, this is amazing. Crazy much a view can change in 2 hours.
awesome photos webmaster.
I was just looking back some of your old pictures...
Just an idea...You could make these shots into window blind...I don't know who would use it for...but It already looks like it...
Always love your pictures,
Very nice, i like the way picture 1 captures the rush of the day kind of felling
you are a great photographer. i've been following this site for quite a while, and your photos just never fails to take my breath away.
Hugh you should do a series like this. It would make a beautiful book. Your style is as good as anyone else I have seen in print.
this is an awesome photo sorry this is late comment but i thought you would get a kick outve the fact that its my desktop wallpaper right now :] keep it up and i might email you later about possibly borrowing some of your pics with your permission could you please email me when you see this thanks!
It is fabulous and innovative. The way you pictured downtown of Toronto is admirable. Vivid and meanwhile beautiful.
Can You Please Send Me The Flash Image On My E-mail email@example.com I LoVed IT Thank You!! :)

I love my city =D
Great work, you've done another time-lapse experiment from that rooftop right? i remember seeing the bus depot in it
just test my soft^)))
and also a second string in my post,because it need my program
This is one of the dopest concept images i've seen in a really long time.
Whoooaaa! That is so cool. What program did you use to make the roll over image?
i've once stayed in toronto in 2006 for a 3 month work, this gorgeous photo reminds me of the city's beauty, magnificent techniques of photography plus gorgeous city where you live in.. that equals perfect
I came across this page via StumbleUpon. I love this photo! I saved it as my desktop wallpaper. And I love the flash version below it! So awesome!
Very creative idea... I can see it also pretty nice as 6 separated single photo on the wall. Could make a nice art piece in a living room!
Great Work Great Idea
Impresionante y muy curiosa la foto, me gustaria saber como has escho este efecto, te agradeceria me mandaras un correo si es posible diciendome como lo has realizado. Muchas gracias
