That is a "towering" skyline when viewed from a place where the highest point in the city is part of the football stadium. :0) Nice picture Evan!

Nice shot, I like cities with few skyscrapers, more civilised. Have you tried some –EV, it may help with the sky.


Cheers

Yes, I agree that lowering the EV or even doing a mild HDR (a subtle HDR, not for the effects but for a more accurate exposure) would help with that. I actually shot that particular photo about 6 months ago and just had the camera set to program for quick shots, and I'm only getting around to editing them now. I just adjusted the curves and contrast in Lighroom afterwards to bring the sky down a bit. I'll post another couple of photos once I'm done processing them in LR.

The Esplanade Riel is a pedestrian bridge which connects Saint Boniface, the city's large French quartier, to downtown.

Another shot of downtown and the Provencher Bridge, along with the Canadian Museum for Human Rights under construction to the left.

#1 beautiful sky which highlights the cloud. I see you have a D7000, with bright sun most days I have mine permanently set on -0.7 EV for most shots. In pp. I spend about a minute to adjust shadows and/or contrast. There is nothing wrong with P mode, that camera gets it right most times.

Cheers

I also noticed the sky in the first picture - very nice! We haven't seen a lot of blue skies here recently - It's rare for us to have this many gray, cloudy days in a row. I like the first picture better than the first, but both are really nice.

Nice one! I like the blurred clouds, how long was your exposure?

Great detail in the opera house tiles, what lens did you use for this one.


Cheers
