    Bonjour Pierre,

    1 is so gorgeous, can't believe it's actually Montreal :D
    How did you achieve this ?

    i'm very new to photography, but those look so good.
    funny thing is i was planning on going downtown Toronto and get some pics.

    Do you mind telling me what settings you had.

    the second pic is like a sepia with more contrast. I dont do presets in Lightroom, its all minor tweaks. there is also vignetting and such.


    using a tripod, 100-200 ISO, Aperture priority mode with an aperture from f/8 - f/16, letting the camera decide what shutter
    then some adjustments (under 2 mins) in Lightroom


    Thanks for the compliments :)

    I think you meant the first pic is like a sepia.

    Were you in Longueuil ?

    No, I was on the island, along the bike path right under the Bonaventure, near the Lachine canal area.

    Wow, this is awesome. That skyline reminds me a lot of St. Louis, Missouri. I think it's the bridge on the right side of the image that does it.

    Normally, I don't like the starburst look, but I think it is perfect here. It's not overwhelming. Very well done I think, and that sky...IT'S SO BLUE! Beautiful.

    Oh and the vignetting is very subtle, love it.

    Awesome. Both of them. Slightly love the color-one more, because of the reflections. Otherwise, they are both phenomenal.

    The colour one seems to be preferred by most! :)

    Thanks for the replies

    #1 Nice how the bridge brings depth into a original picture.
    #2 The city is the main focus right ? But the bridge is distracting me and on the very far left between the tall tower and the smaller buildings it's a gap to me. I'd crop this to bring focus to the city skyline more.
