Toronto's skyline changes constantly these days. By most estimates, more towers are being constructed here than in any other city in the Western World.
Skyscraper construction has enjoyed three big booms in Toronto's history: in the 1920s aand 30s; in the 1960s and 70s; and over the last twenty years.
The diversity in these towers illustrates so much about the history of modern architecture. This multi-ethnic, vibrant city is all around us on the streets and in the neighbourhoods, but it's also sprouting upwards over our heads every day - fast!

mi piace questa composizione spinta in altezza! Hai catturato una bella luce e dei colori accativanti e brillanti. Il senso della profondità ti porta fino alle nuvole.
Buon week end

Dobar tekst o gradu i arhitekturi sa opisom ...
Interesantan i lep pogled na kule ...
Dobar snimak, ostrina i kontrast, lepo pokazane kule i detalji na fasadi, lepe boje.
Imajte lep dan, sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.
A good article about the city and the architecture, with a description ...
An interesting and beautiful view of the towers ...
Good shot, sharpness and contrast nicely shown details of the tower and the facade, beautiful colors.
Have a nice day, all the best for the weekend, good luck.

love shots like this, it amazes me the number of photographers who just do not look up when out with a camera. Modern skylines are just wonderful when viewed like this and this one is just beautiful. Man made symmetry pitch against mother natures ever changing sky. Perfect!
Enjoy your weekend - B.

A very impressive perspective, I hope you did not break your neck taking this picture... Very fine examples of modern architecture and a photo with very pleasant colours.

une magnifique composition avec ces lignes de fuite qui nous mènent droit au ciel! les bleus sont superbes et avec les reflets de la lumière, les structures des bâtiments semblent faites de cuivre. Une très belle photo.
Bonne journée, amicalement,
a beautiful composition with these lines of flight that lead us straight to heaven! The blues are beautiful and the reflections of the light building structures seem to be made of copper. A very beautiful picture.
Have a nice day, regards,

I like the blend of colors here and the luminosity of the image
Very dynamic impact from this low pov
best regards, have a nice day

The vertical view of buildings can, as shown here, make the most interesting patterns. I love how the building on the left looks 'pleated', whilst the one on the right shows the ever decreasing rectangles, merging and changing colour, giving a fine sense of perspective.
I wonder how you would feel about cropping the shot a little to create a slightly more symmetrical shot. Not necessarily better, but different. I'll d a w/s. See what you think.
My warm regards,

You captured two nice examples of modern skyscrapers. I like that they both have a different style. Buildings with a "glass curtain" exterior, such as the one on the left in this photo, are interesting. You also captured perfectly what it feels like to look up at these. I often stretch my neck trying to see to the top of towers here in NYC. :-) Nice blue sky, too.
