    This is beautiful. I love how all the light seems to be emanating from the middle of the frame.

    One of the coolest shots of Toronto I've seen. There's something about railroad tracks that always convey a sense of ruralism. Here, they contrast nicely with the sleek modernism of the tower and skyscrapers.

    Another lovely and atmospheric photo of TO. The leading lines of the track really add to the picture.

    At first I though you were looking out the rear window of a train and it made me wonder how you got down so low. Then I realised you were BETWEEN the tracks! Great perspective, but I hope you did not take too long to get the shot before moving away from there.

    Great sky and wonderful use of lines. It's almost three-dimensional.

    This is a perfect example of what a classic shot should look like, the converging lines the wonderful tones, a large, wide foreground. Fantastic!

    Sweet tones in this black and white.

    Every city has this vantage point, and I never tire of seeing new ones. Great composition...the center really sucks you in.

    For a second there in the full view it looked like the clouds were moving.
    Very nice black and white conversion.

    The first thing I did was also to look at the larger version. This is a very addictive image! My boyfriend and I agree that for some strange reason we expect King Kong to appear at the horizon. Maybe it's because of the sky?

    A great view and you captured it great by taking the shot in this angle, it gives it a really dramatic feelin.

    great composition... the old tracks in the foreground and the "new" skyline in the background!

    Really like the overall feel of this photograph, but the composition bothers me a little. It seems rather left heavy, and the horizon seems to lean slightly left down to right.

    This is simply incredible. Your BW treatments are perfect; no more study needed here. The tracks lead you into the shot...and once you're there, there's a lot to look out. Very high regards, Brent

    This is probably my favorite photo of yours. I love the contrast between the rough railroad and gravel in the foreground and the polished Toronto skyline in the background. Very nice!
