An oldie, taken with my first DSLR about a dozen years ago.

@Ronnie 2¢: Thank you, Ronnie.

Anna Cherer from LA ROCHELLE, France

Beautiful view on the skyline of Toronto of night, ( with less high buildings, where is the CN Tower ? ) ! I like colors and the crescent moon in the sky, as well as the grain of your first DSLR as an argentic photo !

@Anna Cherer: Thanks very much, Anna. This is actually Toronto's west harbour, taken from just west of Ontario Place. Even this view is now clustered with tall buildings and would be vastly different if I went back to take another frame from this vantage point. I had no tripod yet, no idea what I was doing as I had always used a film camera and/or my little Sony Cybershot which was a point and shoot digital. I had quite a challenge doing these initial low light exposures, trying to hold the camera still. This was my first walkabout with the DSLR and I felt blessed that Mother Nature gave me a beautiful sunset to start with.

@omid: I remember it was a very pretty night, and I was happy to have bought my first "real" digital camera. It has since been given to a friend, and the next camera was given to my wife. Spread the joy, right? Thanks.

@grouser: I have never seen this dusk duplicated here. It was a one-off and luckily I was out with a camera to preserve some of it. Thank you, mister g.

Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

I have always liked these nocturnal images. The profile of the city against the sky. I like this moon swinging in the sky. Magnificent

@Adela Fonts: The moon was a real bonus on that evening. Thanks a lot, Adela.

Francisco Romero from Leon, Spain

The existing light and colors are a wonderful backdrop for the city! Excellent image.

17 Oct 2018 6:55pm

@Francisco Romero: I was happy to have taken these images from the lower skyline portion of Toronto, where tall buildings wouldn't compete with what the sky had to say. Thanks, Francisco.

Elaine Hancock from Olney, United States

A gorgeous composition. I love the color and the silhouetted skyline. The moon is the icing on the cake!

18 Oct 2018 1:05am

@Elaine Hancock: There are times when I prefer a crescent moon above all others, and this was one of those times. Thank you very much, Elaine.

Denny Jump from Bellevue, WA, United States

Absolutely spectacular!! The color is amazing, sir!!
