Shot just after 5pm, on my way home from work. Direction is look straight up Bay St to Old City Hall. Colours worked out well. I like this shot over some others I took at Dundas and Yonge, because the RBC and TD buildings look like gate pillars to the downtown financial core. We'll see what DPC thinks.

My guess is a 5.5 for this one. Dream score would be 6.0

Wow! After one day this image has had a high of 6.9 and a low of 6.5. Seems to have settled around 6.7 for now. This could be a new PB for me!!

Holding steady at 6.7. I feel a new PB coming on.

Nice reflections and perspective. The sky feels a bit too light (it's not easy to take care of it in basic editing though...).
