    Any comments are welcome. I know it may look oversaturated but I only bumped it a little bit. The colors basically came out that way.

    Is this the one in Montreal?? I'm not one to comment (with being such a noob in the field) but the only thing I will say is that it almost looks fake. The colors are so pronounced that it looks like it was created using a computer (but I know it's not, lol).

    I grew up in Montreal and I can honestly say I've never been to the Notre-Dame Basilica.

    Wow.. the colours almost look fluorescent. It looks a bit like a fairytale setting.

    Yeah it's the one in Montreal. You should go check it out.

    I'll try and find the original but it might be on a portable hard-drive that I don't have with me right now.

    Thanks for your comment.

    I never saw it that way (fairytale setting) until you mentioned it.

    I was not able to find the original but I managed to produce a "fake original" from the first one I posted.

    I standby saying it's a snapshot, this is where shooting dead center would have worked better because of the symetery, so not much thought has been put into the shot

    Did not have a choice. This was taken with a P&S and I did not have a tripod. (Not to mention the crowds of people walking down the center aisle). I had to use the P&S's camera case, a friend's lens cap, and a pew to get the shot. I propped the camera up with the lens cap, and tilted the camera up with the camera case. I had to use 10 second timer because the slightest touch of the camera either toppled it over or completely changed it's direction. So I hit the shutter button, then as quickly as I could, re-constructed the contraption and hoped it was framed correctly.

    I would have loved to set up a shot from the center of the church but it just wasn't possible at the time.

    Appreciate your comments nonetheless.

    I'm also not one to comment, but the colors are amazing... I'm sure it'd be awesome in person.

    They are amazing, it's a lot of fun to visit in person.

    Anyone else? Does it work does it not work? Are the colors too saturated in the first one? Is it really a problem that it's not centered? Any input would be helpful. Thanks.

    I assume the commentary wanted is more on the treatment and less on the composition.

    In that light, it's pretty wild. I wouldn't have done it personally, but the super intense colors ARE pretty cool.

    One tip though... never work off your originals... and you can see why.
