Built to be a public space for downtown Toronto, the square (which is privately owned--which leads to problems with who can use it and what can be done here--one wouldn't want to upset the sponsors) hosts a variety of events and shows throughout the year.
While this intersection has always been very commercial, it's only been in the last few years that it's become such an advertising hub. There are at least three video screens and countless billboards to tell you exactly what you need to be happy. Joy.

Hi Alex, I like the scene and apparently you had everything going with a good light and contrast. I'm not so sure about your choice of applying what seems to be a soft filter. The overall aspect reminds me of those noise reduction softwares that reduce, at the same time, all visible detail. Mood is great, but it lacks texture, if you know what I mean. Good to see you around here.

You know, Alex, I had been to this place, but came out with insipid frames. Yours has done a brilliant job of capturing the essence of this place. Who would have thougt to tilt here!

Hey! Look who's back in action!
I've missed your daily/ street life shots Alex... where've you been dude?
Nice vibrant colors here- and I like your choice of a wide angle for this one... the motion blur adds to that sense of motion and hectic everyday life.
Welcome back dude...
