    Aaaah, this is incredible. Are those stars at the top? Love them; love the smoothness of the water; love the fading golden light; love the red and green tones on the waterfall. So brilliant in so many ways. And the lyrics fits perfectly.

    Thank you!!

    porteous The main Photoshop work here was to mix in HDR effects, essentially making the trees in the foreground lighter. I also darkened the sky a little, and gave it a slight contrast/color boost. The challenge was keeping everything correctly exposed, from the illuminated waterfall to the artificial lights along the rim and by the boat. Also, I sharpened it and corrected some of the distortion from the wide angle.

    I'm not sure where the date comes from; it must have been taken at some point between 8.30 and 9.30, most likely around 9:20.. I've changed it now though.

    Oksana Yes they are. Thank you! The coolest part of Ontario is still you though - with the falls on a reasonably close second place. ;)

    i got rid of my flickr when i got rid of facebook, and when facebook came back from the dead, flickr did too =). still, i think i'll let all the old uploads just sit on my computer...
