    I work in the old Montreal and i went out yesterday after work to take a few touristy shots.

    It's amazing how you can going out right around sunset makes it so easy to get good shots.

    I hope you like them, but if you don't let me know what i could do to improve.

    Thank you.

    The night shots are the real standouts for me. I like them all, but especially #5, where the illuminated steeples and stained glass stand out and the cobblestone street adds interesting 'texture'.

    I used a tripod with the kit lens on my GX-10.
    Exposure somewhere between 10 and 20 sec, f8 to f11, ISO 100.
    I think what really helped is just the fact that it wasn't quite night yet.

    #1 reminds me of Duluth where theres public areas that blend with industrial areas. #3 or #4 are my favorite. The blue dome against that sky work well.

    #4 and #5 really jump out to me. I love the blue color you got there. Very nice shots and composition.

    My girlfriend is from Vancouver and moved here. She is pretty happy about the price of real estate but she "misses the ocean".

    There is just no place like home!

    Thank you all for your comments!

    real estate is a joke here in Vancouver. I'll be moving back there one day, but for now I am traveling the world. hehe

    awesome pictures of course. I want more :)
