=====================================

 

Good day everybody!!

 

Please press L on your keyboard to see this on black in lightbox.

 

Here is another photo from my 2010 summer series on Toronto, Ontario.

 

This was taken from the Bathurst St. Bridge at 6:18 am on July 11th. This will be my first sunrise photo of the Toronto Skyline in my stream, pretty surprising actually, after 6 years of shooting the skyline off and on. I am happy about this one for now...

 

I probably could have HDR'd the crap out of this photo and it may have looked pretty decent, but I enjoy the silhouettes and the light here, the contrast between light and dark works for me. I am also trying to keep my processing as natural as possible lately. Using filters and trying to get it all in one shot. It feels much more rewarding capturing the exact moment in one photograph. This is not to say I don't enjoy Digital Blending and HDR photography, there is a place and a time for everything.

 

Thanks for following my series, more to come!!

++++++++++++++++

 

My first photo of 2011!! I hope there are plenty more to come and a lot more consistently than last year, hopefully! Sorry about that, life happens, you know?

 

I hope you all had yourself a safe and enjoyable New Year's Eve celebration, and let's all have a fantastic 2011, because who knows what will happen in 2012...... ha ;-)
