This image was taken inside Patinoire Atrium Le 1000. This is an indoor skate rink in the Metro Place Bonaventure in Montreal Down Town. Underneath it, there is a huge and unique underground system which connect to major parts of the city. It leads you to the CN train station which the train takes you across the Canada from East to West. The other famous one is Bell Center which is a sports and entertainment complex in Montreal, Quebec and its capacity has up to 20,000 audiences. There has hundred of thousands of business and food court underground and you can easily spend a whole day and not to feel boring.
I took this photo after the truck had smoothed the ice with water and the reflections on the ice shown clearly like mirror.
The image could have been better if I had thought of using longer exposure time. Thank for viewing.

This is a very good indoor image and your larger version is a must to look at as it is very sharp and we can read all the stores names and many details. The reflections on the ice are nice to see and the off centered semi round mezzanine is well placed in the image.

Ah, there is nothing more comforting to a former ice hockey player like me than a rink with with freshly smoothed ice.
This patinoire looks quite pleasant and I could imagine many a husband turning his rounds here while the wife is shopping around in the mall.
Superb light effects on and off the ice.
have a great weekend

Charming view of this skating rink. Strange that no one is skating but as you write, it was probably just prepared. Nice reflections in the wet ice. good interior photo.
Warm regrads MAlgo

This is an interesting and beautiful building with lots of nice shapes among the various architectural elements. The many lamps provided a very good light for an indoor location, and although you used the flash the exposure is quite soft and pleasant. The freshly prepared ice created perfect reflections.

An interior shot with a difference. You have managed the light well despite the difficult circumstances. The reflections on the ice rink are a great bonus. The people bring the scene to life.

an interesting description of this grand atrium and its central attraction. Your picture is very sharp and clear and you have rendered the sense of depth very effectively too. The reflections are very well defined and delightful, they surely give a special charm to this place, the people on the right look interested in them. The play of lights is very attractive. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
