This archival photo of the Toronto skyline was taken from the Hanlan’s Point on the Centre Island which is probably the best view of the city centre. I took several shots there but only this one I had printed as 18x24cm. While all the negatives got badly damaged this print only ensured a relatively acceptable quality. In other takes I have included more of the reflection...
Returning to downtown with the last ferry after dark was a breath-taking experience.

Toronto skyline had changed only a bit since I was there in 8/1978, and since 2002, Mariusz.
Though I never been in the precise location where you had taken this beautiful night scene, and yet, the needle tower is an eyes catching element on image.
Well done, most I like is the space alloction over the picture, placing the tower off-center.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

Hello Mariusz, very nice image here. I love the tones in the sky, close to the sunset. A very sharp image, good quality. Good light management.

great shot of the Toronto skyline, full of wonderful lights and detail. I have not been back for such a long time (over 20 years) but the memories are still intact especially the view from the top of the tower. Awesome image and execution.
Enjoy the weekend - Brian.

En effet la vue est très belle sur la métropole canadienne. Cette photo à l'heure bleue est magnifique et on constate qu'il n'y a pas de problème pour payer la facture d'électricité dans cette ville.

Now thats a cityscape :) Stunning view of the buildings, and of course the tower itself. The light in the sky is perfect, and the bright light on the towre to the right is very eyecatching. Very nice shot of this amazing city, thanks for sharing.
All the best

Piekna widokowka z wielkiego kanadyjskiego miasta. Dobry POV miales. Czasem warto zajrzec do szuflady i wspomniec stare podroze uwiecznione analogiem. Dobry skan. Podoba mi sie kadr i kolorystyka.

An impressive view over the skyline of Toronto and the iconic CN Tower. The light is pleasing and the illuminated sky scrapers are impressive. As far as I can juge the skyline hasn't changed much since.
have a good time

Hello Mariusz,the illuminated buildings certainly present a fascinating skyline with the glow of the evening light adding real charm and atmosphere to a very well balanced scene.

Hi Bonsior dear Mariusz, how are you?
Wow another significant image. Your intentional over exposure setting makes so dramatic image at all. Your high sense should be highly appreciated. Needless to mention, perfect framework and composition are so authentic as usual.
Thanks for your sharing and have a good day!

Stunning view of the buildings, and of course the tower itself is the real eye catcher on these picture.
You chose a very well angle, this care for depth and perspective.
Excellent composition, nice captured, colours and presentation be superb
Very well done, TFS.

Cosidering that this picture was taken on film over ten years ago and either the print or the negative has been scanned, it is of remarkably good quality with excellent detail and very good colours indeed.
As you say, it would have been nicer to have had a little more of the calm water visible in the nearest foreground but this is still a beautifully composed photograph and one which must for you bring back some wonderful memories of that trip back downtown on the last ferry!

una toronto eccellente al confine tra notte e giorno con le luci che si affacciano come tante lucciole sulle facciate degli edifici.
Una ripresa molto ben eseguita anche per via di un eccellente POV.
Ottimi i colori e buona la nitidezza.
Ciao e buona serata

a rally spectacular view of this section of the city from this advantage point you mentioned.Toronto skyline dominates the city with the other high buildings to complete the whole scenery.Excellent the light and the colour management of the image.

Fantastic skyline with this grouping of skyscrapers and all dominated by the TV antenna., A good time of the day with the night lights, but still very clear sky.
Very good management of light and sharpness.
Very well done.
Enjoy a nice day.

this scanned photo keeps a good quality level, and it's not easy to obtain it.
The view on the lighting of the city at the blue hour is wonderful, I can admire its beautiful architecture and specially the tall tower, with the good contrast of the ensemble on the sky, in an efficient framing.
I like this elegant and harmonical composition.
abmdsudi (55116) 2013-04-25 8:29
I am attracted by the in- focus pin-sharp tower and the constrasting colors across the frame, and the minimal inclusion of yhe colorful shiny water reflections offer a glimpse of the feeling and grab attention too. Bearing in mind that this was taken decade ago the quality is acceptably good, credit to your pp works I love how the red dots and blinkers add to the sensation. Well done.

in der Nacht machte ich kein Foto, hatte auch kein Glück (Defekt) mit meiner Kammera, hätte es aber probieren sollen, so wie du, finde dein Foto sehr gut gelungen!
