    Okay. New direction. I love the "Design is not decoration" sentence.

  • Toronto Skyline

    First day at this forum. Is this where people share photos to have them shot down? A.K.A "photo critique".

    I've looked around and there are a variety of things around here. Some links to external photo sites, some people posting their own photos but others posting in it as well with the same theme, etc.

    I really don't know what to call this thread. Toronto Skyline as the shot that I took or City scapes as to what people should post here.

    Either way, I'm just a graphic designer first and I'm experimenting with photography as I find it very beautiful. I take hundreds if not thousands of shots and find one or two pleasing to the eye (obviously I need more practice). Here's a shot of Toronto's skyline as seen from Toronto Island.

    I think your photo is beautiful. I love the reflection of the lights on the water.

              Great shot LeeIs!

              Welcome from one Torontonian to another. So what camera are you using ?

              It would've been nicer to get more of the water, nevertheless an excellent shot.

                I'm in that boat too, LeeIs... 40 photos or so to get the "perfect shot". But it's something I really enjoy, and even if practice doesn't make *perfect*, it does make you *better*!

                    Thanks all

                    I'm using a crappy fuji s602z I think lol. Well not that crappy but it ain't an SLR but rather fixed lense.

                    40 shots? You've improved immensly I see

                    Thanks for the warm welcome guys.

                      Hey LeeIs, is that all you got? That photo blows.... PSYCHE!! Actually that photo is sweet. Love the colors!! Very nice!!

                        Keith, Are you being sarcastic, AGAIN??
                        It's me the 49yroldguru!

                        Great photo. Reflections make or break a nighttime picture. Don't get rid of that crappy camera yet!

                        And it only takes me 39 shots to get that perfect picture. (right)

                          ooh, maybe I should state "40 shots to get the shot the way I intended" rather than "the perfect shot" - because I still have tons to learn about photography!
