Quebec old town and Chateau Frontenac after sunset seen from across the St Lawrence river in Levis viewing terrace. This was intended to be a meeting with TE members Marc(Manamo) and Andre(InAsiaJones), but unfortunately I was unable to join them because of accomodation problems. At the same times this was taken, Marc and Andre were to the left of this frame shooting the Chateau from a closer angle. I was able to have meeting with Andre the following morning in Levis, and we did get an exceptional morning light with dark clouds contrasting behind the city (a better photo in my opinion than this one), and I will be sharing that one in the future, and I hope so will Andre.

This is a great sunset shot. The sky is great and adds nice color and interest to the shot. The deep blue of the water is fine and the reflections lead the eye into the scene. I think that a little less of the water on the lower part of the shot would help make this fit the rule of thirds. The lighting and colors are fine with excellent sharpness and DOF.

wonderful morning shot.
The sky is wonderful..and dark. The lights from the monuments show the beauty of this city. The reflections and the sea is unique .. like a velvet veil.
My best regards

not the wide spaces we are used to see with you, but the view is pleasing with this evening mood and it's fine technically (even if i believe the thirdies should be applied here)

Salut Tan !
I heard this story about you having to stay on the other side, too bad you could not meet Marc, at least you have seen the most impressive cousin in terms of weight and hardware ;-)
Not a bad view that one though, one can recognize at once the distinct glowing structure of the Chateau Frontenac, not even there was a small room available for you ?
Have a nice day JY

a great image, over the river with its reflexions.
the light and the colors are simply great, the tower well places, I also like the textures in the sky

I wasn't expecting you to be back on TE. I'm not complaining and it's actually good to see your new stuff. Hopefully, other members will return as well, now that the logging problems seem to be fixed.
I've been on Levis side by night as well, but at river level, instead of this observatory point. I have to say that I like your version very much, as this higher point provides a totally different perspective. I wish I would be at home to appreaciate it, as the screen I'm actually working on his low contrasted and too dark.
But one thing I can see is the awesome sky with a V shape cloud. This look terrific.
It was a pleasure meeting you and hopefully, we will catch up upon your next visit - unless it's me going in SF...
P.S. Have a great trip in Guatemala!

A strong and impressive image, almost entirely black and golden. The blue hour made a good jog helping you here.

belle image de nuit bien gérée dans l'expo et les couleurs, la longue pose donne un miroir de l'eau beau travail
