Skyline #3: Toronto
And here is North American skyline #3, which concludes my miniseries. This is a view Toronto, the largest city in Canada, located on Lake Ontario.
The best-known tower in the Toronto skyline is without question the CN Tower, the 6th tallest free-standing structure in the world (553m/1815ft.). It was the tallest tower in the world from 1976, the year of its completion, until 2010.
Toronto is the largest city in Canada with about 2.5 million inhabitants and the capital of Ontario. This photo was taken from the ferry to Toronto Islands, a group of small islands located in Lake Ontario.
Thanks for your visit!

The sky line from Toronto with all these sky scrapers is extraordinarily taken.
Ik was nooit in Canada, dus ik leef met de beelden dat jullie voor ons maken.
Heel mooi foto werk, bedankt.

Excellent view of this mighty city, a line of urban towers that stretches all the way across creating an intriguing scene. I always find myself sitting many studying this kind of shot, looking at each building in fine detail. Brilliant that you got this with not a hint of lens distortion, not easy I would thin, escpecially the CN tower so far left. Really nicely done.

Mooie serie skylines. Alledrie goed uitgekozen.
De beste skylines krijg je toch bij steden die aan het water liggen. Het lijkt of ze uit de zee opduiken.

I was in that beautiful modern city back in 2010 and really liked it!
Your picture is very attractive with very good sharpness, exposure, colors, slim horizontal format, chosen pov and composition!
TFS - congrats,

The composition is well divided, the sky the city and the lake. The wideness of the lake is giving depth to the scene. The point of view is showing the details of the highrise builidngs and of the CN Tower. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

this skyline is wonderful too. The buildings are interesting both individually and as a large group, they are very sharp and we can also feel the spaces between them. I like the brilliant light and the harmonious colours in the skyline and the water. The CN Tower is so eye-catching and you placed it very well at the side of the frame. The sky is lovely and conveys movement. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Zoals Alvaraalto (niet een Fin maar je vader heb ik begrepen) opmerkt, steden gelegen aan het water hebben de mooiste skyline.
Deze hebben inderdaad het effect van het plots sterk vanuit een vlakke voorgrond, de zee dus of een meer, te kunnen oprijzen. Eigenlijk kan je dat ook in bepaalde woestijngebieden hebben en daarbij denk ik aan enkele stadjes in de woestijn in Zuid-Yemen. Ook daar heb je hoge gebouwen die plots uit het zand lijken op te rijzen.
Een mooie reeks van drie Noord-Amerikaanse skylines. Als derde had ik Chicago verwacht maar ik had even Canada vergeten :)
De hoge toren links (CN Tower denk ik) is indrukwekkend. Kon je daar naar boven?
Vele groeten, Paul

Great the view as the panoramic presentation of the new and hight buildings of Toronto with the quality of the photo to be superb.Just an hour ago i crossed the town going to Niagara falls and i could not take a photo from ththe running car and even more the sky was very dark.

You can put side by side these two photos: of NY and of Toronto to compare them. Both are nearly identical, the skyline of both cities is very similar to each other, superb shot, perfectly well done
Royaldevon (43899) 2014-08-24 15:04
The CN Tower certainly stands out on this skyline and it very well positioned in relation to other buildings.
The exposure is spot on with excellent details of all the buildings.
Love the fluffy clouds!
They make the sky just that bit more interesting.
My warm regards,

I had not had the pleasure of meeting you in the gallery, I see a large selection of images, in a style I really like, I trust to have a good relationship.
The skyline of the city of Toronto, is superb with great profusion of modern, high-rise, ultra high tower gives the view, a definite personality.
Very nice colorful tones very effective.
Good management of light and good sharpness.
Have a nice day.
All the best, have a great week,

Très belle aussi celle ci, ces multitude de buildings près de la mer, des architectures modernes et différentes, bon POV, très belle image

magnificent panorama shot of this famous skyline! CN Tower is still an impressive skyscraper, despite it is not the tallest building anymore. (i wonder where the limit is for high skyscrapers:) ) Captured from a good angle and excellent sharpness and colors. Tfs!
Have a nice evening/

Beautiful view of Toronto and the lone sailor! Nicely captured with good lighting and nice details. Very well done, tfs.

This is a really good pov to show this city! I like the colours and the beautiful sky. The boats in foreground looks so small compared to the high buildings!
swapankumarroy (2849) 2014-08-30 5:12
a nice view of modern architecture at the embankment of Lake Ontario, deep blue sky with white clouds background exhibited it more gorgeous and colorful, good composition and well color balance.
warm regards and have a nice weekend,
williewhistler (16496) 2014-09-01 13:04
such a well composed panoramic view of the city,it has nice clear details with each building beautifully portrayed. The little boat is a nice addition.Well done.
nikkitta (17068) 2014-09-01 14:38
Another personal and creative way to present a panoramic of a city, this one with a good sky at the back
What calls my attention are the very high cranes at the back, building construction goes on
Thanks for informative note
*The note with Paul, which language is this?
emka (107713) 2014-09-01 23:23
Hello Lars, Fantastic wide panorama of Toronto. So many skyscrapers and others are being built. Excellent picture with stunning colours and sharpness.

I've been once to the top of the CN Tower by strong winds; there's a circular open air edge walk somewhere under the tv emitter and I felt sick due to the whole structure severe motion!
You show by the rules book the best of a cityscape that has no reason to envy New York.
Met vriendelijke groeten.
mcmtanyel (29636) 2016-12-10 18:37
Oh, look, they have a huge minaret (juuust kiddding). I fly through Toronto frequently but have never taken the time to visit the city. I should do that some time, your photo is quite enticing.
