Montreal's very own biosphere. From what I know: structure built for Expo '67. Then it burned down, leaving the shell behind. Now there's a museum inside.

I'm expecting a lot of "over-processed" comments. Hopefully someday people will recognize IR and vote it accordingly!

Oh yeah, Montreal's casino is located on the same man-made island as this crazy structure. So after I was satisfied with the shots, I went to the casino with the plan of spending $5. I came out with $12.50. yesssss!

This is a great picture, it almost looks like someone either photoshoped the sphere in there, or dropped it from the sky. It just seems so out of place in all those trees.

Great picture. :)

Great work Damian!

This is pretty cool. I read over some of the comments that said this was tilted a little too much, but in your defense it looks like you were trying to keep the inside of the dome straight. I like how you did that, and I think it would have looked a little "off" if the structure in the dome was tilted.

Well I need to say, I never went looking for your shot in the challenge, but I did see this one, and after seeing your shot from last week, I kinda figured it was yours. Again I am kinda shocked at your score, I thought it would do better, but then again I should always think my teamates deserve better.

a pretty scene, but a little boring of a photo.

i couldn't get this angle of the biosphere when i visited Montreal, Canada. i like the IR feel to the shot.

this is remarkable, the horizon and lake is a tad crooked, thats the only fault i can spot. but this no doubt a top finisher

This is fantastic! The patterns and very cool colours really draw me in and make me want to stay longer. The only thing that is a bit distracting is that is it slightly leaning off to the left.

I really like this shot but I dont think this is really what the shoot was supposed to be about.

Effective use of a color trick.

Curious to know where this is. Apt title and the image portrays this well. I just can't get past the pink trees though, destroys the image for me, IMO.

Good photograph, it almost looks like a painting. I cant tell if the trees are blooming in or if that is ice reflecting that color. Nice color and great depth in the photo.
