Fairmont Empress is another landmark of Victoria. The architect was Francis Rattenbury, and his design was masterful, complementing his own Provincial Legislature Buildings (I have posted the picture) to create the view that has defined the city ever since.

Wonderful evening scene! I like these sunset colors, but this view reminds me another city. It was in Gdansk (Poland) two years ago. But this architecture has got the same style and these same shapes. Attractive colors combination of the golden buildings and the grey sky.

Very eye catching shot aided by the golden glow of northern sun, a delightful building structure that looks so elegant blessed by the sublime light, warm colours and shadows revealing the beauty at its best. The composition and exposure is pleasant, and combination to deep grey sky makes the landmark so prominent and even more stunning. Lovely and for me it ranks up there as one of your best works todate. Superb capture :) Congrats

Hello Tiffany ,
Wonderful warm light on this amazing building . A great sky as a perfect backdrop, and an excellent framing .

This looks to be a pleasant and beautiful place to spend a luxurious night. The hotel is a splendid piece of architecture beautifully enhanced by the warm colours of the setting sun. Your tight framing and well chosen viewpoint works superbly, making all the details and colours stand out. A well executed shot with good sharpness and exposure.

Strong sunset glow, adorned beautifully the facade of the impressive edifice.
Shining many windows and the Canada flag high on mast, lone boat and a nice promenade across, all culminate to a nice photo.

Like this building, interesting original architecture taken with golden light, so creating more contrast with the sky and reflections on the water
Good place to visit
Well done, greetings

This is a beautiful building, majestic and imposing and filled with old world charm. The golden light you managed to capture it under really makes it a stand out photo. I like the flag flying proudly above too, a splash of red in a sea of gold.
Thanks for sharing.

Hello Tiffany - Photographed under warm light and against a beautifully detailed sky this scene delights the eye and presents this impressive hotel in all its architectural glory. The location of the hotel looks fabulous with the small marina right in front. Perhaps too expensive for me!

you just got super lucky with this amazing light - it painted the buildings in the port gold and gave them truly wonderful look. The whole effect is even more striking against the cloudy sky in the background. Well captured!
I also like the whole composition with the piers and boat in the foreground.
Thanks for sharing

the orange light is gorgeous and paints in gold the river at the bottom.

Attractive water side view of the elegant classical Empress Hotel, in golden lighting.
Even if not spending the night here, it is fun to have 'high tea' inside the dining room.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello, the colors are magical so you chose the perfect time of day for your image. Very good architectural photo.

una luce fantastica, ricopre d'oro ogni cosa, creando un'atmosfera splendida, soprattutto osservando i riflessi dell'acqua.
InasiaJones (31566) 2014-07-07 7:51
A definitely attractive depiction of this iconic hotel. The warm light works like magic to create a unique atmosphere, just as much on the building than on the clouds.
The reflection on water surface doubles the impression of gold hues.
