BCE Place in downtown Toronto. Comments and suggestions welcomed. Thanks for looking.
Cool shot Sand. Dontcha just dig that roof?
love the shot...but what does bce stand for??...(thinking british columbia exchange..or bace's entryway.....but, i could be wrong...)
Woah, I was just there this past weekend. Good to see a fellow Torontonian here.
Great shot technically, BUT every time you push your shutter release you MUST think of what your subject is. The 2 lights are struggling for attention: there are SO MANY leading lines pointing to the second light further down and it is right in the lower left third, a very strong position. But the foreground light is bigger and it's in focus. :| Therefore the eye doesn't know where the subject is and keeps wandering around the image.
PS. I've always found streetlights to be distracting.
Thanks for the suggestions Sash. I didn't just want to shoot the roof, which is impressive, but isn't interesting on its own. So I deliberately included the lamps. But I see what you mean.
As for what BCE stands for I think it has something to do with Bell Canada.
Cool shot captured well. I was in there last week to repair one of our printers but left the camera in the car. Will have to takea few pics next time.
Very nice photo. I really like the roof on that building.
Yes, totally, like I said, I was in the place just days ago and took a couple snapshots - the leading lines the roof and overall architecture creates are very tempting to shoot but sadly they are useless without a good subject. In fact my shots were both very similar to yours except I shot wideangle from the entrance. There's a very different feel to my picture though it is shot in the same place
a very dirty job with diffuse glow filter.
Instead of concentrating on a specific object, I made the entire top part of the frame my subject, more so around the bottom left third where the roof converges to the ground. This picture is more of a study of how light interacts with its environment than inquiry into a specific object and it's surroundings. It's nothing spectacular, mind you, I wouldn't even bother posting it if not for your post.
I guess the point Im trying to make is that there's always a good subject to pick, if you can't see one just don't push shutter release untill you do. Im guessing you shoot digital, so do I starting recently but I've shot film for a long while, the costs associated with film, processing etc. taught me to put the most I can into every shot i.e. never push shutter release untill I REALLY see something in the viewfinder.
... don't mean to hijack your thread with my photo
stunning shot. i think you framed this very well.
Great use of lines, captivating.
What an awesome structure. I really dig this shot :thumbup: Very nice.
Thanks for the comments and suggestions everyone.
