    I like #s 5 and 6. I'd leave the color in #5, it's what makes it so interesting. And the No Parking shot is very nicely done. Good eye. :thumbup:

    thanks! It's nice to know you have a good eye :p

    Terri - Thanks, ya I've had to increase the contrast in Number 5 because the original shot was a little bland.

    Alex - You aren't weird :) 3 is my 2nd/3rd fave of the bunch. :p

    I live in Calgary, and you showed a whole other side of it. I've never looked at Calgary the way I look at it in these pics. Good job!

    Thanks Seven and Littleman! This past summer me and my bro went for 10 days to stay with my aunt and uncle. we hiked a LOT because that's the main reason we went. However, since my Aunt and Uncle lived sort of near the airport (Northwest, pretty close to the Deerfoot that takes you into Edmonton) we took LOTS of plane pictures in a little field/foottrail/dog walking area where they were no more than 1000 ft above you. I though the big 737's were gonna take my head off :D . And I LOVE planes!

    These shots were taken on that downtown street that's closed off to cars. I'm not sure what it's called, 13th ave or something?? Anyway lots of bars, etc. Thanks for the comments. I might post some of my hiking pics too

    EDIT

    Lol, forgot that not all of these were downtown. The latter half with the colored houses were the "colorful" district, let's just say:mrgreen:
