    All of these shots were handheld, bracing myself against whatever tree or building corner I could find.

    Thanks for looking!

    Love the first, lots of movement, really makes the photo come alive.

    The buildings in
    Distillery district are not what I'd expect to see in Toronto, I'd of thought it was all skyscrapers.

    All very good and even better knowing that there was no tripod

    Thanks for your comments LP and JTH.

    LP, the buildings in the Distillery District are from the late 1800s (1859 is the oldest one, which is 'old' for Toronto) and are being renovated to make it a chi-chi area for shopping, dining and entertainment. It's just a few blocks (maybe a 10 minute walk) from the business district where all the skyscrapers are, so it's neat to have the old and new parts of the City so close together.

    The movement in the first two really compliment the seasonal feel.

    In #1 the house in the background is ever sooooo colourfully lit, it looks almost unreal, like a painted background. Too cool.

    Handheld?
    Only just supported somehow!?
    WOW, that is good! Steady hand!

    That building in #1 is the side of Old City Hall. It was all lit up like that for a light show...very colourful.
