This one I love. The lines continuing straight down into the reflection is brilliantly captured. Well done!
To my eye, I first see pattern, then the distance perspective it creates. Next, I notice the depth in a vertical direction produced by the interesting effect of the reflections in the wet paving which break up that plane revealing another one beneath it. Led by the converging lines in this image my attention is then drawn to the interior where one has the opportunity for further visual entertainment in studying the office furnishings and the line of flags. Still more interest is found in the photo by the inclusion of the surrounding buildings in the upper rectangle of the composition. A pleasant yellow hue dominates the color in the photo but this is nicely punctuated by a rectangle of green inside the glass and some other colors in the flags. Overall a photo with lots of interest and visual effects.
ohhhhh i really really like this one
i love just how dynamic the once point perspective is
and i love how everything is in the same consistent shape
a request for wallpaper PLEASEEEE :)
Great perspective. The feeling of depth is overwhelming.
How much did you have to pay the fire department to slick down the promenade? ;-)
Great work as usual.
Excellent reflection and spot on composition. Really like this.
I really like the partial symmetry. Nice shot.
Very nice construction of the picture with interesting reflection.
Your architectural photography continues to impress. Can I be rude enough to ask:
1. Do you use any software to correct perspective?
2. Do you select the ISO before the shot manually or do you have it set to AUTO. If you select it manually - what criteria to you use to select? Thanks.
5 second handheld exposure? how on earth do you do it?
perfect use of the reflections on the wet stones.
The spirit of urban nights, well captured...
wow that looks very awesome! love the way only some of it is reflected, that's very interesting!
I'm a fan of night shots, and reflection shots. I like the 3D effect this has..
Wow. This is spectacular.
Nice shot. Like the reflection.
very cool! thought this one was handheld until i saw the exif data!
Is this shot seriously handheld? I couldn't dream of taking an exposure 5 secs long without using a support. Great shot nonetheless!
5s handheld ? Are you a robot ?
5 seconds handheld?? this is not humanly possible.
Very creative, Sam. I took a similar shot of the Police Station on Dundas. I may post it some time.
This might sound strange but I think the reflection looks better than the roof/covering, perhaps because there is better detail in the reflection.
Love the strong shapes and structures in this shot. Excellent work.
To be entirely accurate, this is the Banking Pavilion and the TD Tower did not change it's name. The TD Canada Trust Tower is another building entirely in BCE Place.
looks like a Mies building...is it? I've never been to Toronto but there's a post office in Chicago similar to this building...it could just be a Mies imitation.
Really nice image. Makes me think of the advent of the luminous sky (floursescents) in office building design. Lots of connotations for me. Very strong composition, and the wetness is amazing.
you should submit this to some architecture foundation or magazine, they would love it.
Mies Van Der Rohe did a fantastic job, for this one, didn't he?
this is what pulls people to the cities.
Superb composition and light, Admire this beautiful work..
I m a bird. I am crashing right into it. That fake/real marble pillar is just ugly, all smooth and gloosy like I don't see enough reflections already. They may as well put a humongous mirror on the ground to trick my squinty eyes.
That's just incredible composition. Everything is so structured and clean, very idealistic.
Very clever composition and cropped ery well.
You give the viewer something to think about and I like that.
This is like a playground for the eyes. Wonderful!
Beautiful shot, Sam. Could you post a wallpaper version, please?
Great pic, I saw you on call for help.
I love all of your stuff, I espcially love your macro in saint laurance market. I'd love to be able to take those kinds of pics, Unforunetly I don't have an DLSLR yet.
A beautiful shot. Nicely framed.
I feel like I'm getting absorbed into this photo! :)
I've been visiting downtown Toronto for years and I've seen this building during the day many times and it has never looked that cool. Great catch.
I'm new to blogging - This daily photo blog is cool also.
i like this one even better.
Love your street shot series man. Very lovely. I think you captured the essence of the city. Cheers!
