Thanks for your comment Beverly. This was taken with a Canon G2 Digital camera shortly after sunset with a one second exposure, F2.8 if I remember correctly. This area is one of my favorite areas to shoot.

I am surprised to see you used an F2.8 for this? Don't get me wrong, I love the picture, but what made you choose this apeture instead of a smaller one (and longer shutter speed)?

Actually this was one of many shots I took. I was experimenting with a lot of different settings and this one turned out the best. #5963

Excellent shot. Vancouver is a beautiful city, but this is a complement to it. Well Done! #6129

Awesome shot! Great colors, contrast, saturation and all! Makes you wish you were there. Although f/2.8 sounds odd, smaller apertures really help for DOF. Great work! #6143

Ditto! And just to add, that the use of a smaller aperture would not have made a depth of field difference since all of your subject is at 'infinity' or to put it simply the same focused distance-These kinds of compositions fall into the category of 'who cares what aperture I use'-Ironically, when shooting 'who cares' compositions I often use f/8 or f/11 since these are what are known as 'critical apertures'-Critical apertures often produce the sharpest/most contrast images.
I wanted to also add, that if you've never tried the FLW filter(not to be confusd with the FLD) give it a go next time out-It imparts a really nice magenta cast and it also does some minor color correcting with mercury/sodium vapor lighting.
Again, just a really nice shot and, like your other, its great to see you out shooting 'night scenes' before its really night!

Wow Dan, that shot gives the dictionary definition of flawless. What a spectacular shot. Well deserved win.

Curious? Did you use photoshop or Corel with this? Nice effect. #4367851

I feel I can almost see the skytrain passing on the back of the picture. Outsanding capture. #7215128
