The Scarborough Bluffs are an escarpment in Scarborough, Ontario along the shoreline of Lake Ontario. The Guild is a unique facility encompassing several historic buildings including the Guild Inn inside a public park. Guildwood Park forms a naturalized frame around the formal Guild Inn Gardens and several other historic structures. Surrounding these buildings are more than 70 architectural fragments and sculptures within the formal gardens.
And happy Canada Day today!

That sky is really amazing, and your low viewpoint adds to the dynamism of this image.

Alana, you're an artist!...
A fabulous title for a fabulous photo! POV, crop, your PP treatment are really great here. Very very dynamic composition, thanks to these three components. And your title idea... you really have a very good imagination :))
Have a nice weekend

gibbsy (1358) 2006-07-01 10:11
Dramatic saturated colours from a wierd perspective, but it works and draws you in. Excellent work.
Angelillo (9372) 2006-07-01 11:28
Hi, Alana. This sky is really lovely, and the point of view here is perfect to let the sky to be itself. Great contrast! Take care.

Hi Alana - wonderful use of polariser, and congratulations for making Toronto appear like a tropical paradise, great work.

Firstly, happy Canada Day. I remember spending Canada Day in Montreal in 2003 when I attended the Annual Jazz Festival there. What a time that was!
Great shot and a dramatic sky. The angle of view is very dramatic and the slanted flowers are a great feature. I've been to Scarborough many times and know this location well. Thanks for bringing back good memories.
danyy (0) 2006-07-01 15:55
des photos toujours très artistiques, des couleurs et des contrastes magnifiques, qu'il soient naturels avec l'usage de filtres ou en PP, c'est fabuleux.
Quel ciel !!
Un excellent week-end.
chrisnet (21092) 2006-07-01 17:29

jrj (34841) 2006-07-02 14:17
I like very much pp work myself - as this one must be with an essential part of postwork - still the final result is most impressive and with a great total - splendid result!
Mistral (15402) 2006-07-02 17:48
welcome on TE!
Excellent framing with great colours (polarizer, yes?).
I didn't know that Toronto was in the tropics! lol

I was having a look at your gallery today and came away thoroughly impressed. Your images are spectacular to say the least and I was spoilt for choice. This one is exta special though. Its more like a painted canvas with the wonderful colours.
With Greetings from India
DLM (6479) 2006-07-06 13:32
Hi Alana,stunning gallery full of wonderful compositions,well done,
timleahy (2195) 2006-07-08 18:37
Dramatic shot - what a sky! The low angle really highlights it. Did you use a polariser?
I have to admit that the title goes over my head - sorry!?!
oochappan (22043) 2006-07-10 15:02
Surprisong clarity and depht all extremely well defined to this dramatic deep blue cloudy sky, big sized thanks to your low POV.
An outstanding shot Alana.
placombe (7867) 2006-07-10 21:44
Simply WOW. What a pov and remarquable dof.
benkrut (2407) 2006-07-13 20:56
The point of view is unusual but the most incredible issue here is the sky. I wish I had this kind of sky in each my picture and I'm sure I wouldn't be bored.
rmatthews (945) 2006-07-24 21:09
Very impressive...what do you do to get such wild skys? Are you burning them in? Very nice and interesting perspective. How do you like your Sigma lens? I've thought long and hard about getting one...I'm stuck in a loop comparing it to the Nikon 12-24mm version.
Nice picture...very stunning.
tabora (0) 2006-07-30 16:01
Splendide composition,le ciel est magnifique ainsi que les couleurs.
On dirait une peinture.
corsicastorm (3224) 2006-08-01 7:38
Quel ciel!!!!!!! j'adore!!! je tire mon chapeau!!
dcawker (5717) 2006-08-02 10:58
HDR again, I'd suspect! And I love it!! (some people are weird about tone-blending but not me.. it's the future!) Regards, Doug
Click3 (1886) 2006-08-04 22:04
Alana...this pic is absolutely stunning...what viewpoint, what fantastic treatment - colours, texture, detail, depth...just goes to show what marvel you can obtain with combination of photographic sensibility & technical expertise. Must carry on learning...thanks for the lesson. Best regards, Robert

AMAZING natural photo! Great impression and beautiful mood! What a sky! Perfect shot! Fabled!
Thank you, nice days,
hoorge (1434) 2006-08-15 21:17
Good imagination, good creativity, fantastic colors and composition.
plimrn (21344) 2006-08-16 23:30
Your POV emphasizes the stunning sky well. The angle you've chosen makes it seem like the clouds are streaming out a small palm tree.
rajhema (1871) 2006-08-17 6:14
Very dramatic presentation here Alana. The sky looks like straight from a scifi movie. Excellent framing and vibrant colors. Very sharp too!
vts_ch (2624) 2006-09-30 16:15
I discovered your gallery and I am just amased by the way you represent and, thus, work on the skies...
mhoule (260) 2006-12-23 16:41
I like your photographic work very much. All your shots are awesome in terms of composition, color and post-processing. You're an artist for sure. I choose this one for the dramatic sky and for the unusual point of view. I am glad to see the image quality you got from your Sigma lens...I will probably buy one soon.
But the equipment here is second, what amazes me more is your talent as a photographer and the originality of your shots. You're one of my favorites !
japiey (10163) 2007-04-08 18:30
Nature at its best in frame. There's nothing to be cropped. Outstanding. congrats.
jirivrobel (542) 2007-04-20 4:33
As I said before, dramatic and brilliant!
waseemkhan (1099) 2007-06-24 11:00
Hi Alana ,
That sky is really amazing, and your low viewpoint adds to the dynamism of this image.
fijiphil (1355) 2007-07-04 12:15
Alana I love your work and the amazing sharpness and strong colours you achieve. However I'm deducting a point here for the very clumsy PP work to the left there, where the sky abruptly changes from a dark blue to a light blue where you've obviously lightened up your foreground. Amazed nobody else has pointed that out. But then, I shouldn't be, because, after all, this is Trekearth...
humayun (2919) 2007-12-01 18:43
wow great compo.........
Khattakphoto (686) 2008-06-16 3:27
