Go Team Canada

When taking this photo, I went out to the beach near the Humber River, overlooking the Toronto skyline. I wanted to get shots of this bridge over the Humber, but wasnt happy with them. I also had the following photos in mind when I was shooting for this challenge:
' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' timfythetoo's
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/814/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_642845.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/814/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_642845.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

and ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' levyj413's
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/814/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_644619.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/814/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_644619.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

While I hadn't seen ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' levyj413's image in months, I guess it had quite the lasting memory, as my shot looks very similar to his. All credit for the creativity behind the composition should go to him.

FINALLY a photo that needs the tilt to make it work and has a horizon. Well done.

Beautiful image that I'm sure the Canadian tourist board would love to use.

The only very minor point is that a pin-sharp reflection would have added something, but I guess that's very difficult over such a large stretch of water.

It's a nice shot, but it strikes me as a little too steep. The colors are great and the shot is sharp.

Love the reflection, wish it would have been a bit sharper in the water. Nice mirror effect

really nice, I like how you 1/2'd the shot, colors are really appealing...one thing...and it really doesn't matter...why are the lights on a couple of the building "smeared"?
