    Shot from the Toronto Islands over the course of around 75 minutes on one evening from before sunset until after dusk. Used an ND filter at first and then the LIVE TIME feature (one of the reasons I enjoy shooting with Olympus). Just wanted to show here how the changing light over a short period of time can influence the look of the skyline. I have processed them to emphasise colour and light, since those are the most appealing facets of a skyline to me, and also to have the 'pop' consistent with my postcard style. (I never buy postcards anymore; I send out my own :) )
    A bench in the water in front of me provided a nice compositional tool in a few shots.
    While I prefer the cobalt blue of dusk the cloud cover didn't allow for it but there was a nice fusion of pink and blue as sunset merged into dusk.

    The first and last shots were taken from the ferry to and from the island respectively.

    Nice photos! I attempted a similar one when i was there last year. Mine came out quite a bit noisy though, especially the sky. Like yours better.

    Wow so many different variations of colors, etc.
  7. So many different versions of the same skyline, and each one is a winner. Well done. Note to myself, spend more time taking the photo.

    The Islands were flooded when we were there in June. Wish we could have had that view. Great shots!
