    Another must see in Toronto is Spadina Avenue, the heart of the Chinese community and Toronto’s fashion industry. Open markets, restaurants and shops line the street. Did not really get the images I was looking for but I plan to go back.

    Great photo's again! Don't know how you get the off angle pictures to work for you, mine usually end up looking like a drunk took the picture :)

    The third picture is my favourite, the low angle, shadows, and catching the person in midstep is great. A little history for those not fimiliar with Toronto, The El Mocambo was immortalised when the Rolling Stones decieded to pop in one night and played a view tunes, since then other big bands show up on occasion.

    Great job AIRIC. You captured the character of the area really well. Haven't been down there in a long time.

    They are all great but number two is by far my favorite.

    Oh wow, too cool, yet again. I have taken more than 300 photos in the past couple of days, but I no longer dare to put any of them up...
    That huge thimble is great!
    And the colours, and the activity, the light and shadows...

    I use the vivid setting on the D-70 then slightly tighten the levels and add 20% saturation. The early morning sunshine really helps and is the main key to my images. I try to do as little as possible in PS.

    What seems like a long time ago I spent many a night in the El Mo and actually remember some of the experiences :) Great place to party.
