Looking around on TE, there are a number of you who have posted 1000, 1500, and i think there are even a few members approaching 2000! So 600 isn't exactly a large number, but its a number i didn't think I'd ever reach when i started here!
TE has re-charged my love and passion for photography, and it still keeps me going! I've met a few of you along my travels, and i'll be sure to meet more of you too.
Thanks to all of you for the inspiration and continued interest. Its so much fun to view all the photos from around the world!
This is the Canada Pavilion, or Canada Place, or the Colored Sails...locals here call them all 3. Its shot through thick plexi glass, so its a bit smudgy in places, but i think you get the idea :)

Congratulations on this milestone? What a way to celebrate with this excellent night time composition. Nicely framed and perfectly exposed to capture the blue hour in all its glory. The foreground architecture makes for some splendid graphism.
serp2000 (43110) 2012-12-14 6:51
My congratulations, Craig! If you know a quality and a quantity are not the same. ))) I see your modesty... Excellent masterpiece! TFS! I like your contribution to this gallery!
Best wishes, my friend!
ikeharel (67291) 2012-12-14 6:54
Quality, not quantity that matters, Craig, cheers for the round number - and i always say that every photo is a good reason for a celebration...
Fantastic night scenery over places in Vancouver i already recognize from othe pictures of yours.
That's the TE mission: I see places not visited, yet.
Great taken shot.
mkamionka (34663) 2012-12-14 7:24
spectacular blue hour photo. Fantastic POV, great perspective from above. And you have included both some stunning architecture as well as the natural elements here. The reflection in water is very impressive. I like the well saturated colors. Great asymmetry too, great geometry.
Very good choice for 600. For me it is still long way there.
Excellent work here and in the whole gallery.
eldancer1 (35551) 2012-12-14 7:44
Congratualtions on your 600th post! And it's a beautiful image of your city to commemorate the occasion. I remember having a dinner in one of the restaurants in the area. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Love the colors. Well done, tfs.
Royaldevon (36183) 2012-12-14 8:29
I can identify with your notes about TE re-charging your passion for photography. I always want to take my camera with me and am always looking for the best angle for a shot, to share with my friends on T.E.
Congratulations on your this, your 600th post. It is a fine shot for this 'special' one. The viewpoint gives us excellent impressions of the skyscraper as it towers over the area. I love how it leads to the pastel coloured roofs, which appear likesailing boats bobbing on the water.
The composition, the light and the exposure are very good, whilst the mood is one of fun and festivity, created by the coloured lights.
Have a lovely day,
notrap (6069) 2012-12-14 8:44
And this is a great contribution for a jubilee, its a fascinating view and a very good photo.
jjcordier (79295) 2012-12-14 9:07
600 photos mais en à peine 4 ans, c'est déjà une belle performance, d'autant plus qu'elles sont toujours de très belle qualité comme cette superbe image nocturne de Vancouver vue depuis ce point haut placé.
PaulVDV (26708) 2012-12-14 10:08
Congratulations with your 600th post on TE!
It's a wonderful blue hour capture and shows well the special location of the city between the ocean and the mountains.
Best regards, Paul

Nice way to celebrate it with this cool and colorful image. Looks like big party:)
worldcitizen (8202) 2012-12-14 10:56
If it's the colored sails, it must be...Craig! :-)
Congrats on number 600, which is another great photo of this wonderful spot. I like the lit windows of the building in the foreground, along with the colored sails and the water. Nice high POV, too. Here's to 600 more!! :-)
rychem (32321) 2012-12-14 11:06
Congratulations on your 600th photo. This is a beautiful night photo, I think the plexi glass was not so unclear, colors and lights are perfect, compliments
fabbs99 (17129) 2012-12-14 12:09
Nice shot in the darkness with good sharpness and perspective.Very well done.Keep sharing.
carlo62 (43611) 2012-12-14 13:32
complimenti per le 600 foto, non ha importanza quante siano, l'importante è la passione che ci metti, la volontà di migliorarsi ed il piacere di mostrarle e confrontarle.
Questo è un bellissimo modo di festeggiare, la foto è molto bella, ottima esposizione, pov interessante e colori belli.

abmdsudi (50568) 2012-12-14 18:15
Congrast on your 600th upload! and a what a fairytale night shot we have here, the range of colors is the strong point making this shot successful and the mixed lighting further adds to the sensation. Lots to look at and take in a truly lively place seen from the best vantage point, your pp is great the clarity is fine but the vivid colors are so vibrant. Technically very well performed shot, Congrats
delpeoples (56726) 2012-12-14 19:13
Congratulations on your 600th photo, I bet you didnt think you'd make it, but I'm so glad you did. A fantastic and very different POV of your beautiful city. I like how you included those sails, which seem to be present in a lot of your harbour shots. Excellent light control and superb definition. The verticsal frame is well chosen and really adds depth.
Thanks for all the photos, critiques and laughs
Sonata11 (33737) 2012-12-14 20:49
You captured wonderfully this modern architecture in blue hour of place with fabulous colors, sharpness, perfect clarity. I like your POV and DOF as fantastic. Beautiful photo. Awesome shot!!!! Thanks for sharing.
All the best and have a great WE,
SnapRJW (31629) 2012-12-14 20:50
Hello Craig and congratulations on your 600th post. That's a whole lot of shots and a whole lot of dedication to your photography! The 'coloured sails' are something I remember well from a visit to Vancouver. My husband's company office was on Burrard Street and close to the waterfront area. A fine shot of a beautiful city (has to be one of the most attractive cities in the world) and one I should like to visit again one day! Thanks for the quality of posts and your continued dedication to the site. It's work like yours that continues to challenge and inspire. Warm regards rosemary
macondo (19271) 2012-12-14 21:50
Congratulations on reaching another milestone! It'll take me another 7 years to get to 600 at my rate of going. Nice blue hour kind of shot to mark the occasion, and I especially like the backdrop of the mountains against the pale evening sky. Always hard to get a good shot without reflections through glass, but none apparent here. Good thing you had the tripod with you to get a longer exposure with good DOF.
bukitgolfb301 (39684) 2012-12-15 0:25
Hi dear Craig
So fantastic and gorgeous night shot image!

JFS (32459) 2012-12-15 0:36
Glorious night shot to celebrate you 600 post! I want to see 600 more, minimum:)))

Hansaphotos (7687) 2012-12-15 3:04
Ah, finally a VC view again:) Congratulation on your 600th! A stunning city view here. Splendid colours and a fine composition. I like how the high rise together with the sails contribute to create a kind of an "L"-composition. Beautiful work:)
Best regards, Erling
timecapturer (49288) 2012-12-15 3:28
it catches up on you doesn't it. A superb image to make your 600th! The POV and light here are just so enticing and of course your execution flawless as always. The quality of this image is perfect and the presentation beautiful. Congratulations!
Enjoy your weekend - regards Brian.
dkmurphys (55955) 2012-12-15 7:20
Never mind the number, the quality of your images is great! To many more spectacular captures like this one.
Atousa (7131) 2012-12-15 7:32
Excellent light management n great chosen pov.. with all those lights n colors, it is so lively; I like it.. beautifully captured.. tfs
Best regards, Atousa
Noel_Byrne (29259) 2012-12-15 9:07
Happy 600th! Great shot to celebrate with, and one that drew my eye hugely. I was looking at this for a while the other day, but only got back to comment.
I'm a big fan of tall buildings, and Ireland does not give much opportunity to photgraph them, so its always a treat to see shots liek this. A really nice tower, but your point of view with the white building behind, the silky water and the sparking lights of the far off city looks fantastic.
Great one, thanks for sharing
josepmarin (58325) 2012-12-15 10:12
Hi, my friend Craig,
your 600th!! Congratulations!
With this photo you reach a milestone in your splendid gallery, and in order to celebrate the event, present a magnificent photo of architecture, in a beautiful urban composition and with an excellent capture at the blue hour.
The lighting of the city and of the bay, and the majestic mountains that surround it, create a very attractive image, with a great graphical wealth. The technical execution is impeccable.
lgir (7277) 2012-12-15 10:14
nice color rendering on this night view, thanks to good management of the various sources of colors, and interesting POV.
Congratulations for these beautiful creations available for nearly 4 years.
divail (8334) 2012-12-15 20:06
Toutes mes félicitations pour ta 600e photo!
600 photos, toutes d'excellente qualité et toutes intéressantes. J'ai tout de suite reconnu ton style particulier en voyant la vignette. Bravo et continue à nous présenter tes créations.
batalay (37861) 2012-12-15 21:08
What a pleasure to see a spectacular photo of a newly familiar place. I cannot believe I was there twice this past summer — in late June and early August. And thanks to you, your advice on what to see optimized our time in Vancouver. I see that the photo was taken exactly a year before we arrived in Vancouver for our second visit. By the way, congratulations on your 600th post. I am still trying to get to 400.
wolf38 (31286) 2012-12-15 23:17
Hi Craig. Vancouver is a great city with a lot of flair. Your photo shows the illuminated night-side of the city. The colors are fantastic. Best overall technical quality. Very nice.

Keep counting them!
Robert1969 (7160) 2012-12-18 14:39
Congratualtions on your 600th post, but is
this not your 599th upload?
You chose a beautiful point of view: the
picture has a lots of highness and depth
and is also exciting. The vertical
position emphasize that extra. Light
management and the composition are also
excellent and the beautiful colors
of the lights are a nice extra.
p.s. not scared: I have four pictures
without water, seas, or legs (etc etc):-)
Silvio1953 (136829) 2012-12-19 8:44
Ciao Craig, doesn't matter number if quality if so good, congratulations for your splendid 600th post on TE, fascinating nocturne shoot, great POV on fantastic architecture, excellent perspective, wonderful bright colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Craig !!
Can not let this year finish without wishing you a very happy X`mas and a Fantastic 2013.
There is a new very Modern complex by the water in Singapore, a bit like this photo of yours....... I will be visiting it next year ( May ) and I hope that I can take some photos as nice as yours.Fantastic
Cheers from Australia.
kato (11630) 2012-12-27 6:49
You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the beautiful night scene of Vancouver faced the waterfront. The colorgul lights compared with the building is so dazzling and is harmonized beautifully. And, the blue bay and mountains in behind with silhouette draw out an additional good atmosphere in this image.
Have a good New Year 2013!
elenimavrandoni (0) 2013-01-12 13:02
