Just as the title suggests, this is an old staple of mine, a subject that i just can't get enough of.
The large Golf Ball, the Dragon boats, the condos in the bg, and the Football Stadium in the middle bg, not to mention the water...Personally, i love this area of Vancouver, its my favorite.
I love driving down here at different times of the day, early morning blue hour, late evening blue hour, sunrise, just to check out the various lighting conditions.
This photo of the Science World Exhibit was taken in the early morning, soon after blue hour.
Hope you don't mind seeing this building again :)
And yes, as some of you have already pointed out, this is hdr
Have a great weekend everyone

Encore une belle photo de cet endroit spectaculaire que tu sais si bien photographier. Les reflets du bâtiment et du ciel sont fantastiques.

Une belle photo, des couleurs bien saturées, des reflets bien saisis et un ciel magnifique.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

hi Craig, I do not mind see it again :). Impressive view, I wonder how it would look like if I made such a photo, without HDR. Amazing construction. But on the left I see something similar to our new National Stadium. What is it?
have a nice weekend last in 2012

che bella immagine, una panoramica splendida, molto equilibrata nella composizione, con una bellissima luce ed esaltata dal riflesso, il tutto sotto un cielo meraviglioso.

Endless joy to see places like this, Craig - the eyes never tired about it magnificence.
As you wrote on mine: "nothing to complain..." also about this one, must say...
Immaculate photojob done here.
timecapturer (49288) 2012-12-29 2:07
an object lesson in composition this fine shot. The lines, light and sharp detail here are just superb. It has such a rich mixture of lines shapes and tones that are all perfectly balanced and attractive. Love it!
Enjoy the weekend - Brian.

It's really futuristic view. Real city of the future. Thanks to you, we can make the trip in time. This crystal ball is amazing. Wonderful sky and its reflection in the water. Picture knocks on his knees with its beauty.
rbassin (21040) 2012-12-29 2:17
une très belle composition, bien cadrée, une photo avec des lignes fortes dans la diagonale.
J'aime bien le reflet et la lumière.
stevesaba (8135) 2012-12-29 2:42
I can see why this is your favorite scene....wow! Beautifully done. Some great converging perspective happening here too! Flawless work, very fine, warm regards, Steve
holmertz (47150) 2012-12-29 4:37
Yes, this is quite magnificent. A few splashes of bright colors, some diagonals, superb reflections, samples of various kinds of architecture, but first and foremost a picture with fabulous clarity and sharpness. Very well done.
abmdsudi (48812) 2012-12-29 4:41
A stand out image! and fine treatment as this looks diff than straight pp but not overdone. I admire your skill in finding the most effective viewpoint to make this shot, stunning depth and perspective with the angular lines as strong anchor while the prominent ball as main interest is so well in place. A quality shot as always, the greyish blue sky and reflection add to the delight. Well done, TFS
snunney (92570) 2012-12-29 4:45
You do not mention HDR, but the image seems to me to have HDR stamped all over it. Not that I object:-) It makes for an excellent atmosphere in this very well realised composition. The well chosen point of view makes for a very attractive balanced scene. Superb realisation; light, colours and detail are all first class.
npecanhuk (72044) 2012-12-29 4:58
A classical of yours!
It's certainly a place with lots of subjects for great urban & architecture photography!
In this one, special regards to those reflections in a very interesting and attractive composition, colors and management of light!
TFS - congrats,
jacquest (18919) 2012-12-29 5:37
I would love this place also. There are so much interesting elements to see at the same time. I like the way you placed the Exhibit with it's reflection framed by the the two wooden wharfs. The distance to the city's skyline creates deepness.
Sergiom (70648) 2012-12-29 6:15
J'aime beaucoup les qualités techniques et de PP de cette photo.La belle structure offre de beaux reflets dans les eaux calmes et l'arrière plan est de toute beauté.
delpeoples (56042) 2012-12-29 6:16
Nah I don't mind seeing this area again, I could see it 100 times and still there would be something different to enjoy. The clouds here really are spectacular and I love the symmetry and reflections. Did you take this in RAW? I know this is an HDR, but it seems alot better defined than the usual HDR. Love the diagonal lines too. A stunning photo of an equally stunning place in Vancouver.
krzychu30 (15510) 2012-12-29 6:25
I think no matter how often you´ve presented to us this place so far,it just can´t get bored.The place is really gorgeous!Love the reflections in the water in combination with this soft,warm light and of course your HDR treatment.The result is outstanding!
Have a nice weekend

Excellent shot! Wonderful colour and clarity. Beautiful colour, nice POV.
Wishing you A Very Happy New year.
eldancer1 (33927) 2012-12-29 9:34
Awesome pov! I like the reflections on the water. Sometimes bad weather can be a great asset when taking pictures and also a challenge. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
Cricri (113639) 2012-12-29 9:45
Tout bon le cadrage, les perspectives, les détails et le top avec les reflets du batiment et du ciel, superbe
maglex (1980) 2012-12-29 10:13
nice accent there made by the canoe at the middle, clouds seem to be emanating from the sphere
dkmurphys (54489) 2012-12-29 10:20
Superb POV. You've captured all the important elements very well. Good work!
siudzi (34141) 2012-12-29 14:26
Wow! This area looks really amazing with so many great buildings and unique design. Well seen and composed. Perfectly executed work as always. Bravo!
lgir (7267) 2012-12-30 10:10
Very good POV with perspectives that guide our gaze towards this modern building that admirably reflects.
The contrasting colors are also a very good rendered.
s_lush (16134) 2012-12-30 21:56
I like how you choose composition and framing of your shots. This composition is especially well chosen. It comprises so many interesting compositional elements. Perfectly well composed and highly masterfully captured scene!

Is this earth? Magic, amazing...of another planet...The HDR goes very well here, everything is fantastic!
Good work my friend, as usual.

Ciao Craig, fascinating reflections, lovely composition with beautiful structure, splendid light, excellent perspective and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, Happy New Year 2013, ciao Silvio
josepmarin (58087) 2012-12-31 5:41
Hi, my friend Craig,
this place is very interesting graphically, and it is logical that you like. The image has a great depth and a great sharpness, which allow us to see this urban landscape with all its architectural details.
The HDR is soft and provides a good contrast with the cloudy sky, and a great power in a composition executed impeccably.
A beautiful work.
I wish you a happy New Year, full of health and peace!
adores (42291) 2013-01-01 10:05
I remember the other one, but this one is also very good, with the large Ball off centre and the stadium in background. I like the composition and hdr worked very well in this one also! A very nice place!
Have a great New Year!
Kielia (24077) 2013-01-04 1:20
the early bird catches the worm! Fantastic colors and a very well working POV on the scenery. The mood is very well conveyed and felt by the viewer. My compliments also for the nice note!
I wish you a happy New Year!
claudeD (36620) 2013-01-08 1:14
very fine hdr picture of this wonderful location. Perfect light mangment and amazing reflections in the water. I like the view very much.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
Hansaphotos (7617) 2013-01-10 13:25
Another stunning photo of this building. Fantastic lighting and wonderful effect of the reflections and the clouds. I like how you have composed and used the pier as a lead towards the main subject, clever and well thought. A good HDR job with great colours too. A late happy new year to you and your family!
Best regards, Erling
thebest (4276) 2013-01-10 19:51
Wow wonderful photo - the content is so interesting - I just love the sky & the reflection on the water.
The quality of your photo & your notes is outstanding on all levels.
Well done I love it!
Romano46 (18472) 2013-01-20 12:10
questa tua foto è molto bella perchè hai saputo cogliere un un punto di vista che ti ha permesso di trasformare questo luogo in un ambiente fantastico nel quale realtà e fantasia si uniscono nell'illusione di luogo meraviglioso.
Eccellenti la nitidezza, il contrasto ed i colori e ben appropriato l'uso dell'ottica da te utilizzata.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana
bona (13636) 2013-01-31 12:05
I ask you to put more photos of this place, very pretty photo! :)
This big ball is very impressive and the water mirror is fantastic.
rigoletto (34279) 2013-02-27 2:13
The thumbnail; says, this is a HDR application. And i think, quite a good one. Lots of urban details to explore on the right, as well as the interesting architecture on the left. Wide angle clouds and the diagonal pier give an immense perspective. A photo that i'd love to achieve.
All the best,
