I would say, one of the new symbols of the city and the new addition to Toronto’s waterfront is the Gateway Bridge, also called Humber River Pedestrian bridge. Located at the boundary between the cities of Toronto and Etobicoke and also at the mouth of the Humber river, this attractive structure with slender tubular ribs, inclined inwards, connects several trails and a scenic waterfront park. Length – 139 meters.

This is an excellent composition by all means. The PoV and DoF are perfect. I really enjoyt the sharpness and bright colours of the entire frame.
Framboisilla (5277) 2006-07-19 2:38

faubry (35405) 2006-07-19 2:49
hello Alana, very beautiful place! and ypu have good captured, very graphic with this curve
pasternak (15177) 2006-07-19 2:52
This is very good, Alana, this is you at your best. Strong perspective of this tubular railing of the bridge, beginning, it seems, right from the camera lens, very nice perspective of the bridge itself, awesome sky, and even some people on the bridge (especially I like the blurred cycler;)) Very strong work.

beautiful sky, interesting contracty colours and smart position of the camera! i like it!
RGatward (20060) 2006-07-19 2:57
I don't normally go for frames, but your choice here, with the whole striking image it contains, seems to work well and add something. Really stunning work.
bakes888 (18499) 2006-07-19 3:01
Hi Alana. Wow what a striking image. The beautiful curve of the bridge set against a big sky make for an eye catching shot. Thanks for sharing.
baba_flies (8829) 2006-07-19 3:16
Super cool and such a different angle ... you can even see a bike rider "running" through (if you look close enough).
All the best from Zurich (already hot at 9 a.m.)
cjcampbell (143) 2006-07-19 3:17
This is a fantastic picture. The use of the wide angle on the curves, the sky in the background, the people on the bridge -- it all comes together here.
clnaef (6289) 2006-07-19 3:22
Joli sujet merveilleusement servi par le grand angle.
piotrkweclich (792) 2006-07-19 3:23
Hi, Graet bridge and well shown. Nice compositrion, colors and sharpness. Good idea of putting people in the frame.
AiresSantos (56155) 2006-07-19 3:34
Superb POV in this very nice composition. Excellent depth, wonderful sky, lovely colors and very good details.
donluicu (24718) 2006-07-19 4:06
this is trully an amazing picture..the framing is awesome and the PP work is just great (can we have some clues of what you've done??? plz)
It's a pleasure for the eyes..
craiggc (2509) 2006-07-19 4:13
Great point of view Alana. This is really well executed. I love the colours and rich contrast too.
I'm not a fan of the frame - just a personal opinion
sebinho342 (19317) 2006-07-19 4:28
Once again you show us a tremedous picture, your sky is so strong and powerful. I definitely need to buy a filter, the result is amazing !
The composition is great with this bridge. Everything is good but you already know it ;)
westernisles (740) 2006-07-19 4:49
The point of view is very good and the colours of sky are really amazing.
Thanks for sharing.
blakitan (1311) 2006-07-19 5:15
Very, very, very nice picture. I guess I just stop myself right here, no more words to say. Speechless....
gelor (3229) 2006-07-19 5:20
Superbe composition ! Un ciel merveilleux ! Félicitations.
carper (96) 2006-07-19 5:24
great shot alana,
there is a moody atmosphere in this well taking composition, the fantastic liens, the details and the great sky are marvelous, very nice job.
jins (272) 2006-07-19 5:29
What a beautiful composition!!
Very nice POV and perspective!!
The sharpness and colors are great.
Especially I am very glad to see the people at your photo for the very first time :).
Thank you for sharing,
bend1k (934) 2006-07-19 6:15
alana, that is an excellent point to take the shot. the sharpness and the combination of cool and warm colors makes it even better
Zepi (22848) 2006-07-19 6:20
Whoooooooooo ! ! ! ! !
Ca déchire ces contrastes et ce cadrage !
J’adore ce genre de prise de vue urbaine !
C’est fort, très fort même
Bien joué !
dkeus31 (27735) 2006-07-19 6:23
A very nice picture.
The right foreground to conduct the view in the picture.
chrisnet (21088) 2006-07-19 10:27
Oh là là Alana,çà penche dans tous les sens!!On se dirait sur les montagnes russes!La composition est osée,impressionnante,on sort vraiment des sentiers battus avec une telle image.C'est très bien fait et très original,bravo Alana!
Jeweller (4) 2006-07-19 10:42
Excellent shot. Great use of the wideangle lens. Beautiful colours.
vinicio (23415) 2006-07-19 10:55
Excellent composition Alana, compliments, amazing colors, lights, and over all the sky, beautiful indeed.
Henryk_Bilor (20799) 2006-07-19 12:26
Amazing, this is the only word I can say. Excellent perspective, colours and sharpness. The composition is a masterpiece, with the people on the bridge and the sweet clouds.
celinaconroy (717) 2006-07-19 13:13
A very unusual image...really like the skewif angle which takes in that fabulous curve.
blue-velvet30 (6524) 2006-07-19 14:25
Fantastic POV! Great colors and composition. Excellent work!
thanks for sharing
sarju (5324) 2006-07-19 17:41
Fantastic shot ... top of the line alana ... or maybe I should say topmost of the line.
Two things I like a lot about this photo ...
1 ... the angle and the distortion ... both are remarkable ... I just love it ... if I could kiss a photo ... this would be it .. I wish you could see the expressions on my face right now ... lols
2 your composition, the blue sky, the clouds and above all, people standing on the bridge .... excellent work over here.
I bow down to this photo of your Alana .... accept my salute with lots of respect and regards.
I would definitely like to see this photo getting something close to 200 points. okay I have to go downtown to meet up with a good friend of mine ;-) ... thanks for sharing the remarkable view
cheers .... sarju
drago (4826) 2006-07-19 19:23
Alana once again i'm amazed with this photo.Any tecnical details have been already mentioned so the only thing i can wright is Bravo!
PS I would like to hear from you some tips about the process you are making cause i'm starting to wonder about my D50..!
mwphotopress (47) 2006-07-19 23:36
A very common object but a very original way to photograph it. And then very vivid colors in the sky. Just amazing
vapours (8264) 2006-07-20 1:18
Wow what an amazing shot, a real fresh image as well, the composition is nothing I have seen before on TE. The colour work you have done on this sky looks great.
jjcordier (73640) 2006-07-20 17:06
Very original view with this "wide angle" and fantastic light and colours. Great shot, Alana!
Numa (284) 2006-07-20 17:16
With this reality all around, you would have shot a lot of easier point of view,
thx, and good color,
pat0500 (21561) 2006-07-21 10:30
Very nice picture and very good Pov.
I like the colours and wonderful blue sky.
mkawalec (544) 2006-07-22 4:19
Awesome POV!!! great colors and sharpness. Intersting sky!!! You are definetely tallented. Good job.
rosaline (0) 2006-07-22 7:49
Nice perspective and angle of view, which delivers a strong composition. I've never heard of this bridge so glad you have shown us this view. The wide angle lens has given a good, exaggerated view to heighten impact. Well done.
riclopes (35577) 2006-07-23 7:23
I had this one on my head for a while. It's an outstanding work and I can't see any falts here. The excellent composition with the diagonal across the image, the amazing strong perspective (regarding the distortions that we both love...), the appealing strong colors, the people seen up there (and a cyclist, I supposed) and the gorgeous painting on the sky: Everything is perfect! 7 favorites explain how good this is. Congratulations!
Have a nice sunday,
Didi (55145) 2006-07-23 7:27
Very good point of view who gives a nice perspective.
Colours and sharpness are very appreciable.
Polonaise (5802) 2006-07-23 10:01
Uff.. Just finished an exciting trip around Toronto and its vicinities. Your pictures Alana, speak loudly your love for the city. Your perfection in controlling the amazing abilities of wide angle' lens, and immaculate finish added to your works before you post them for our enjoyment - evoke nothing else but the deep respect and…Yes…The pure enjoyment!
dolin (15647) 2006-07-23 11:45
IMPRESIVE SHOT !!!
Assez folle cette image, l'utilisation du grand angle donne un effet hallucinant.
Cette armature qui part depuis l'angle, cette dof, ces teintes incroyables, ce ciel...pffffff, génial !
rmatthews (945) 2006-07-24 21:12
I love your perspectives...very, very good. It makes me want to go and grab my camera and start shooting (one of the highest compliments I know how to give to a photographer...the other being 'I want to hang one on my wall').
Very good technique...a little lens distortion from the super wide angle but very nice.
Very well done...it's a shame that one can only give 2 points at a time.
coco (30439) 2006-07-26 4:24
Wonderful PV and colours, sure.
How is possible that sky?
rhizomes (15343) 2006-07-27 13:17
It's an impressive picture with strong graphic sense and great lights and colors !
This 10-20mm lens is good but you've got "the eye" to see this composition !!
danyy (0) 2006-07-28 11:35
Tu te montres spécialiste de ce genre de photo très contrastée. Apparemment une parfaite maîtrise des logiciels de retouche avec des traitements très judicieux.
Cette photo est magnifique, surtout le ciel.
vlad_ghiea (1086) 2006-07-28 12:18
Good perspective! Nice colors! You have an artist eye...
benkrut (2407) 2006-07-30 14:18
100 points for a great picture. I love the effect of using wide angle lens close to the object. The composition is perfect; the sky couldn't be better too. People visible on the bridge make this photo alive and also give the idea of the bridge's size.
ozgurzeyhan (0) 2006-07-30 16:05
Tebrikler... Çok güzel...
Congratulations... It is Beautiful...
corsicastorm (3224) 2006-08-01 7:36
Quelle point de vue!!!!!!!!!! une image puissante et déconcertante!!! bravo!
dcawker (5717) 2006-08-02 10:56
Hi Alana, Fantastic POV and you're right - the Sigma lens is excellent as we can all see here! :) Looks like you used a tad of HDR tone-blending here as well but I could be wrong! Great shot. Regards, Doug
capthaddock (28790) 2006-08-02 11:47
Hi Alana - wow, this is so impressive, excellent pespective, shows the bridge from a dramatic angle, and the sky is gorgeous, the polariser has performed well.
goodwill (4224) 2006-08-09 3:47
Oh my God!!!!
Crystal clear clarity, a bow shaped POV, master crafts woman of the sky, vegetation and waters--what else is needed?
Marvellous composition and a wonderful contrast.
leo61 (0) 2006-08-13 3:07
Hi Alana !
It´s time to give you compliments for your masterpiece(so far).
It's a fantastic perspective given by your excellent POV.Colors and contrast are fantastic and it`s verry nice to see the people against thi wonderful sky.Great shot and perfect composition.
Have a nice sunday,
Alain_cdn (41) 2006-08-14 21:13
I've been looking at your pictures, they are wonderfull and this one here really stands out. Great colors and POV. It looks like you have mastered this Sigma 10-20mm lens, this is a lens I'm planning to buy and looking at your pictures is just helping me to make that decision. great shot. TFS.
mbasil (2129) 2006-08-14 21:33
Oh yea! Nicely done, Alana. I remember looking at this one to, before deciding on the Sigma. It sounds like you should get royalties from Sigma!
rajhema (1871) 2006-09-07 13:32
Marvelous capture Alana. Sharp and colorful. very dramatic capture. TFS
Eridan (427) 2006-09-07 13:35
Superb photo, great POV. I only find disturbing a person who was walking behind the couple. Without it, the photo would be spotless.
Stepan (27210) 2006-10-06 2:14
That's an incredible and inpired pov !! The depth is impressive. Colors and light are perfect too. Great shot.
jone (3231) 2006-10-06 2:30
Hi Alana ;)
your gallery is full with amazing and very beautiful photos...
This one is great... very impressive, perfect perspective... beautiful sky...
All the best,
overcome (1109) 2006-10-10 11:23
Excellent captured. You managed to take the advantage of using Sigma 10-20 lenses to captured this photo. The photo was stretched which make it even more wonderful to see.
Regards from Ken
KostasKon (0) 2006-10-11 16:14
Very good POV, and great use of the filter. The shapes of the clouds are great.
cobbydale (1958) 2006-11-08 20:21
wow! this is an amazing shot Alana - adding to my favourites. Fantastic composition, POV, DOF and colours. Interesting about the Humber River alternate name as there's a famous Humber Bridge here in the UK. TFS. Leon.
pady (4800) 2006-11-10 14:17
La perspective dans cette image est incroyable. Le point de fuite vers le ciel super bien composée et le ciel est d'une beauté à couper le souffle.
Du beau travail
sssimon (684) 2006-11-19 19:27
Excellent original picture!
The bidge does a very nice diagonal. It's like if there was 2 diffrent sceneries. One from the clouds and on from the river!
Danysub (710) 2007-06-25 4:38
Punto di vista molto interessante.
Composizione dinamica e piacevole..
Bello il celo esaltato dal grandangolo.
sreeharig (211) 2007-07-19 9:37
excellent framing. awesome PoV.stunning capture.
If you had used a smaller shutter speed you could have capture the moving cyclist too.
tamatree (243) 2007-11-11 0:57
WOW!! Excellent photo...well done!
maxmitzu (455) 2009-09-01 8:42
Wonderful construction, but the sky with thats colors is amazing. Great composition. I like very much this picture.
macjake (52830) 2009-09-01 9:07
This shot has a spooky feel to it! Almost seems haunted.
Great composition, and terrific clouds
i really like it
Mistral (15402) 2012-04-27 1:15
Really a powerful image due of it's perfect composition and your HDR PP (or it's just polarizer filter?). The stunning sky also is a strong point for this image!
