Big City       ©2016 hifi
Panasonic DMC-GM5       4th place, 135 points
1/250s, f5, ISO 200, 26mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
Post-Processing: de-haze, vibrance, sharpen       Extra Info: For a family birthday dinner, we ate in the restaurant at the top of the CN Tower. Food was great, but pricey but you are paying for the views which IMO are well worth the cost. While waiting for our meals to be served, I was walking around the restaurant taking pictures from all sides/views. This is a photographer's dream and I recommend to anyone if you have the chance to visit. Don't forget to bring your wide angle lens.

    Thanks everyone for the comments and votes!

RobertLavker: I have not been here for photos at night but I am sure it is equally impressive.

    Amazing constructions the like of which I will probably never see, so thank you for sharing the experience :-) . Nice and sharp with great colours. Shame we aren't allowed to enter larger photos to see more of the details. GL.

    That sure is a great view.

    Nicely captured. The buildings look like toys from that height. Wonderful vista.

    Nicely done. How is the view at night or during the blue hour?

    Suits to the topic. Nice view.

    Very attractive shot. I think you should have mentioned the CN tower is the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere at 553.3m (1,815ft) high. That might give the viewer a better perspective on the size of the city. The higher you go, the smaller the city looks. The view you captured provides a well balanced picture with one diagonal sliding into the bottom right corner nicely. In my favs for sure.

    The food is underrated. It is really quite extraordinary there. And as you say can't beat the views. Wonder if you could have done a pano stitch, might have been the ideal place. Still in my top picks.

    What a beautiful day for a photo! Great shot of a beautiful and big city. In my TT.

    been there etc. not enough time to eat and agree the views are worth it
I like how you have also shown that Toronto has area of green and low level construction
good result knowing the problems of dealing with reflections

    Nice shot. Well-composed, though shooting down more, putting the horizon nearer the top, would have placed more emphasis on the size of the city.
