Montreal is the cultural center of Québec, French-speaking Canada and French-speaking North America as a whole, and an important city in the Francophonie. The city is a hub for French-language television productions, radio, theater, circuses, performing arts, film, multimedia and print publishing.
Montreal is also the cultural capital for English Quebec. The Montreal Gazette newspaper, McGill University, and the Centaur Theatre are traditional hubs of Anglo culture.Although Anglophones still concentrate in the Montreal boroughs on the west side of the island, they have become more bilingual, as 66% of Quebec Anglophones claim to be able to carry on a conversation in French. Thus, while tensions can occur between Anglophones and Francophones, contemporary Montreal is home to a diverse collection of cultures and people who generally live together amicably.Other cultural communities, be it first-generation immigrants or long-time settlers in Montreal, have greatly contributed to the originality and flavor of Montreal. Many festivals and parades are organized to celebrate the contribution of these communities, such as the Irish Saint Patrick Parade, the Greek Independence Day Parade or the Festival des Nuits d'Afrique. Montreal's Jewish community has been a leading contributor to Montreal's cultural landscape and is renowned for its level of charitable giving and its plethora of cultural and social service community institutions. Among these are the world renowned Jewish Public Library of Montreal, Segal Centre for the Arts, and Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre.

This is a good view of the skyline of Montreal. All those lighted windows create a graphic effect. The distance on the water adds deepness and the light has been well managed for a very clear image.

The many lights from the windows, the reflections in the water and the dark clouds create a fine big city atmosphere. The city looks quite impressive and several of the highrise buildings are very attractive. You have made a fine composition and captured the view with a good light. Well done.

ti sei iscritta da poco in TE, però osservando la tua gallery ho notato delle foto molto interessanti che ritraggono sia il Canada che altri paesi.
Tra le tante questa è quella che io preferisco per la bellezza della composizione e per l'ottimo mix di luce artificiale e naturale che rende la città molto più viva.
Molto suggestivo anche il cielo nuvoloso che dona un aspetto diverso alla città, dando anche una particolare colorazione cupa alle acqua antistanti la città.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Beautiful presentation of Montreal skyline. Very attractive effect with the burned sky. There is a nice contrast between the dark clouds and the bright sky, in the city it seems to be a late hour and yet the last rays of sun are quite powerful. Nice star-shaped lights.

a really beautiful photo! Montreal at night. I've been several times in Canada, but never in Montreal. Your picture will surely attract many tourists to this place.
Very well done, Anna!
All the best

Une très belle scène de nuit bien composée.
Le rendu est très bon avec toutes ces lumières qui se détachent dans ce ciel gris.
