Beautiful shot... one of your best in quite some time, I think. However, I think the sharpening is a tad too strong. It always looks bad when there are wires in a shot.
You make me want to pick up a camera again.
Wonderful composition and photo.
i love the angle
very nice shot
if you don't mind,
i'd like to see it in colour
Great lines in this photo. Very unique and fun to look at.
Epic. The first word my mind came to. Foreboding was the next one.
I love your site- it is my homepage as well the homepage of my two friends. You make the day I see after I see your photographs appear slightly different. And isn't that incredible?
Sweet angles, and the sky just "pops!"
if day before's snap was mesmerising this is just awe-strucking...
ٍExcellent shot with great angle view.
wow.. fantastic! symmetry plus dizzying perspective..
if humans came with eyes on top of their heads this is what we would get to notice much more often :)
if it were not for the phone poles it would look unreal. nice work
I envy your abilty to come up with such brilliant shots of seemingly ordinary things.
From the vantage of god's. Exquisite cathedral ceiling.
Inspires me it does, smiling and breathing in love,
wow - you chose the perfect perspective! very interesting composition and a great dramatic sky.
Mesmerizing. This one is art.
Really nice composition - any chance of a larger version for wallpaper?
Keep up the good work
Amazing perspective, bravo !
The symmetry of the corner of the building and the hydro wires is almost perfect and makes a very satisfying impression. The cloud pattern reminds me of the images of the earth as seen from an earth-orbiting satellite. An altogether unique and brilliant photo. Congratulations.
Interesting perspective. The monochrome on this one really creates a moody image. Great job!
Ah yes! The wired and wonderful world. Not dependable. Wires break easily, especially with help from saboteurs. Nice building - they also fall down quickly with bombs.
I'm in a lousy mood obviously.
I think the picture would have looked better had the pole and the other building not been in it.
This photo looks like the clouds are moving!!! It's awesome!!! I think it would make an excellent windows Desktop...
Very cool shot. Good decision for turning it into black and white.
I love all of the shapes in this photo.
Beautiful shot, I live there and know the area =)
very cool pic, i might stop by there on the way home from work and take a look at things from that perspective...
My first thought seeing this was 'how did he get on a space shuttle?' The building looked like one of those big tubes they carry around, and I thought I was looking down on the sky, instead of up at it. :)
for me the subject of this photo is the chine of the palace. Beautifulst.
Weird, at the first look I though it was a space station shot looking down on earth.
Lovely shot. There is so much drama going on up there in the sky that my eye is drawn to stay up there, but then I come back down to the buildings, the poles and the wires... Great composition and tone. I like the wires, by the way. I think they add a nice sense of line and enhance the triangle shape of the corner of the building.
Great composition. Would like to see it in color also.
*gasp* as always, superb. How do you just "find" these shots!? Thanks, as always, for the amazing shot!
very very good pic
Sam... that's my boy. Definitely one of your best in a long while. Want to see more of your European shots though. Forget Toronto for a bit and venture out.
Bring on some fantastic Italia shots!!!
Wow, that's some amazing perspective.
wow. everything is so geometric i love it.
wow! i love it!!
Wallpaper wallpaper? :D
The composition is moving, but that black and white is really annoying. More grain, better contrast! I get the fealing this is not film.
Nice shot. How's your neck?!!
Wires are always a distraction, but your decision to make this a B&W made them part of the art. This looks like a shot taken from the International Space Station. It's one of your best. And you are. The best.
really cool picture...
I love the colour version, there's so much contrast in it...
I prefer the black and white version. I just love the tones and the unique perspective. Well done.
The Grayscale one is much more impressive!
This is such a unique photo. The perspective is fantastic it gives such an interesting dimension.
What I find interesting; to my eyes the wires belong when I look at the black and white, but yet when I look at the color version, I find the wires more distracting and less appealing...Strange huh?
Once again you have proved that you have talents and vision above that of mere mortals like me.
The B&W is far superior than the coloured version. Love the photo!
i think the color is better. it adds something to it.
Love the B&W much more than the coloured version... It makes the image more surrealistic
This photo just appeared in the Toronto Star newspaper (3 Sep, page D11) with the caption "There's lot's to be grateful for - you just have to know where to look." The article is how an atheist's existential angst can be tempered with gratefulness and an appreciation of beauty, etc. (I think ?)
I knew there was a reason I keep coming back to this site. Thanks Father Sam.
Sam, do you know that this photo was posed at Ideas section of Sunday (Toronto) Star yesterday? The title of the article is "Thank Who!"
I enjoy the colour version more. It looks like the sky is the planet Earth and we're looking down on it from above.
very nice photo, like alwaus, but i think that color version is better in this case
