@Nicou: Merci !

Anna Cherer from LA ROCHELLE, France

A beautiful point of vue on CN Tower and a part of Downtown Toronto ! I like your composition with the couple in contemplation of the view, and autumn atmosphere, nearly winter, with the naked trees !

@Anna Cherer: Thanks very much, Anna. This is from a tall staircase that leads up to Casa Loma in midtown, and at the top there are benches and this stone wall that can be climbed up on fairly safely. During summer the city view is blocked, but when the leaves are gone it's wide open. If you ever go to Casa Loma, the attic level windows offer amazing views.

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

What a powerful image this makes . . we cannot help but imagine their thoughts there.

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

nicely layered image. I thought at first they were sitting on a chimney pot
and the phrase that sprang to mind was some like it hot :)

@grouser: Ha ha... now I can only *wish* they had been sitting on a chimney pot.

Devi from Chennai, India

Superb image..
I am a bit worried...hope they get off this terrace wall!

@Devi: Thank you, and not to worry because there is a large brick platform with benches right in front of them, rather than what looks like a big drop due to the trick of this camera angle.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

What a view these lovers enjoy!! They look like they're right on the edge, almost daring to be there.

@Steven: I like your description; thanks a lot.

Denny Jump from Bellevue, WA, United States

What a wonderful image here! I love your response to Anna, as well...You know your city and it shows....and it feels wonderful to see and hear beautiful words and images coming from one who truly loves his home!
The Tower's spire that appears to be growing from the tree (thanks to your expert composition) really reaches out and grabs the soul...These two friends are gaining comfort on several levels....and your image strikes the soul on several levels...Great piece Sir! Cheers ;-)
