Well, where do i begin?
500 posts is by no means a record on TE, not even close actually, but its still a significant number i suppose. Will i make it for another 500, who knows?
What I do know is that TE has opened up my world to photography once again - before TE i let my photography slip away from me. TE and its members helped me get it back.
I owe a huge thank you to all of you who have taken the time to view and critique my photos, seriously, a big thank you! It takes alot out of our daily lives to log in everyday and scan hundreds and photos, taking time away from our loved ones - so its much appreciated.
This scene was fitting for my 500th post, its of the Colored Sails or its proper name The Canada Pavilion.
A subject i've posted dozens of times from many different pov's. The Sails turn color as the daylight passes into darkness.
This one was taken as the sun was setting, you can see the orange yellow glow of light striking the Convention Center on the right.
I've added a WS photo just for fun and enjoyment showing the sails in all their glory :)
Thanks again for your time and the inspiration!

Hi my friend!
Glorious shot to celebrate your 500 posts, I hope you will post 500 more minimum, I enjoy them very much, and you know that.
My best regards,
josepmarin (57841) 2012-05-20 9:40
you have reached the milestone of 500 photos presented on the site. Congratulations! And certainly, I wait for other 500, minimum.
You have chosen a beautiful composition, with a magnificent graphical power because of these huge sails and its contrast with the sloping fronts of the buildings at the right side.
I like the smoothness of the light and of the tonalities of the image, that it gives a great result in the personality of the photo.
The WS photo is a good recollection of the Olympic Games, and has a great chromatic beauty.
A great work, my friend.
Herquin (7711) 2012-05-20 9:40
bon choix d'image pour ta 500ème .Bravo .
worldcitizen (7441) 2012-05-20 9:43
Congrats on 500 photos...wow!! :-) A wonderful choice for the occasion: the famous sails, but up close, and with CANADA clearly visible. It's a nice "shout out" to your beautiful country. It's been great seeing your first 500 here on TE. Here's to many more amazing photos! :-)
rbassin (19485) 2012-05-20 9:45
Bravo pour cette 500è et pour ton parcourt sur TE.
Une très belle photo: couleurs, contraste et graphisme sont bien réalisés.
krzychu30 (15510) 2012-05-20 10:10
Congratulations to your 500th photo on TE! You present us beautiful picture for this special occasion.The close-up view and this particular POV of the Canada Pavilion catches excellently the mood of the evening with its beautiful,gentle lighting.It´s amazing and so eye-catching how reflects the setting sun in the facade of Convention Centre.Just love this color contrast between these two parts of the photo.
I wish you at least another 500 photos.
Have a nice sunday
claudeD (34837) 2012-05-20 10:22

Félicitations pour cette 500ème image, je suis très contente d'avoir visiter Vancouver grâce a toi...Une compo original et contrasté de ces éléments, les couleurs aussi sont intéressant, bien vu et réaliser, BRAVO

adramad (39806) 2012-05-20 10:38
Although we are not in contact lately, today we are almost neighbors in the gallery and saw that it was your 500 post, would not fail to join in the congratulations.
A fabulous image, original and impeccably performed.
golus (2893) 2012-05-20 10:46
Congratulations on your 500th post, surely an important milestone and a hard to realize target for me, especially since it demands so much in terms of time and discipline. I very much appreciate. And the photo that you chose for this occasion is a perfect one; honoring your beloved country with the eyecatching bold print on the wall. I also very much liked this one due to its stunning geometric shapes, lines and textures. The reflection depicting the sunset looks amazing too.
A very well planned and executed composition, thank you. Have a nice evening.
holmertz (43795) 2012-05-20 10:55
Congratulations on your jubilee and thanks for many fine photos. I guess this is fairly typical of your style: interesting architecture where you have used the elements well, combining two very different buildings in a way that has created several parallel diagonal lines very nicely. I like the inclusion of the word CANADA. It leaves me in no doubt where this was taken.
cornejo (34626) 2012-05-20 11:04
Hello friend Craig, my congratulations on your 500 post in TE. Interesting composition very well made, with clarity, good light and color. An interesting job very well done, congratulations. Tfs.
Good afternoon and happy start to the week.
Best regards and best wishes.
annjackman (20539) 2012-05-20 11:09
You celebrate yor 500th post with an excellent example of your style. The juxtaposition of the Pavillion and the Convention Centre works very well - you clearly composed this with thought. A nice contrast of colours as well. A tremedous shot. Looking forward to at least 500 more!
Kind Regards, Ann
brianmcc (6189) 2012-05-20 11:25
congratulations on reaching such a milestone. it really is an impressive achievement, i'm not sure i've got 500 pictures in me, never mind 500 good enough for TE. and yes you're right about the committment of so many TE'ers.
a great combination of architecture and canadian culture. i especially like the golden yellow colours on the building to the right. very strong lines and patterns in this composition.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2012-05-20 14:14
Congratulations on 500 beautiful images that allowed us to discover Vancouver and Canada. The picture is still in your style, creative and spectacular. The quality is excellent. Ws good too. Bravo.
Have a nice day
Gigidusud (17615) 2012-05-20 14:52
Congratulations for your 500th post!Original composition with nice colors.
Thanks for all your great photos that i love.
edge (6765) 2012-05-20 16:02
Hello Craig, My congratulations to you for your 500th post. Keeping up with photography is a real chore and belonging to TE helps. I like your shot here as it is very colorful and modernistic. I post by spurts and I have been posting for quite a long time, but I get behind and then I quit for awhile. I have several thousand slides to convert to digital and I do that sometimes. I am retired, but I play golf at least three times a week and we travel quite a bit, but I am back for now. Have a good week. Regards, Roger
CanmoreKevin (2111) 2012-05-20 19:06

per prima cosa congratulazioni per il tuo traguardo di 500 post e la qualità eccellente della tua galleria, come quest'ultimo post del Padiglione del Canada in Vancouver.
Definizione magnifica delle vele che si ergono verso il cielo e grande accostamento di tonalità con l'effetto orange sulla destra.
Have a nice evening

To many more photos!
jhm (142920) 2012-05-22 3:19
Congratulations for your 500th picture on TE, what is much Craig, better 500 picture but nice for looking or 1000 picture all bad.
Sharpness and clarity are of high quality.
Composition and colors are very pleasant for look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Tuesday,
delpeoples (54471) 2012-05-22 3:26
Yee ha! Congratulations on your 500th photo. It's a wonderful achievement and I've enjoyed being part of the journey. Here's to many hundreds more. You make a great point about the time and effort we all invest, yourself included. Some days we all get a bit of burnout, but it's essentially the friendships and the beautiful photography that keeps me coming back. You chose a really appropriate photo to celebrate with. You've represented and demonstrated your country superbly. Beautiful blue tones, shapes and graphics and an almost abstract shot. Great work, congrats.
Thanks for sharing, have a beaut day
emilbo (22616) 2012-05-22 7:33

Toutes mes amitiés et bonne continuation,
ourania (35164) 2012-05-22 12:02
Congratulations for your first 500 photos on TE, I wish you to create many more great compositions that express your art and love of architecture. I'm sure the architects and the people who know or use these buildings appreciate very much your interpretations, like we all do.
This is another superb composition with impeccable framing, lighting and clarity. The colours and contrasts are lovely. I like very much the way the two different styles coexist and interact in the frame. The warm yellow light is brilliant and envigorating. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best,
danos (89691) 2012-05-23 0:31

This is a great shot, wonderful exposure with the white on white is not easy task. Great depth with a great sense of architectural abstract. Which is your specialty.
