Just a standard Toronto Cityscape. Taken on a cold winter day in February.
Original picture lacked some kind of character, thought full saturation would give it an almost surreal look.
edited in Picasa 2 and cleaned up noise with NeatImage Pro.
comments/suggestions appreciated ! :D

Nice effect. Looks like a computer modelisation. However, this picture would belong better on Trek Lens, a more artistic-oriented site.

Very good perspective. I like the point of view with the road separating the grittier looking rail tracks and the city street from the downtown highrises in the distance. The fence is really well captured. But I don't know about the color saturation. The blue in the sky is really impressive but it is a bit much overall. Other ways to handle scenes that don't seem to pop is to selectively play with colors, by both increasing and/or decreasing various channels. I think it may have looked great to begin with and just some minor selective touchups may have been able to give it a more real feel and give a bit of tension to the street scene. But I really like your point of view and composition. The long street perspective enhanced by all the light posts really moves the eye into the scene and then up when it hits the skyscrapers.
