i think the colors and tonality of the the first one are wonderful - the reflection of the lighthouse on the water, the texture in the waves, etc. very nice.

i'm not convinced by the composition though. i would probably crop out the bright region around the sun and maybe take a bit off the top. as it is the two elements (the horizontal jetty and the vertical tower/reflection) are sitting a bit too close to center and they each have almost the exact same relationship to center.

i think maybe the second one is trying to show too much - the strip of water between the jetty and the skyline prevents my eye from really settling in on the image. could also use a bit more black.

Nice picture of Toronto. I do agree a bit more black in the skyline would be nice. I'm not sure how you get that though as I'm a beginner.

I'm heading up there from Pittsburgh this weekend. I hope I'll have a sunrise like that. I do have one I shot of TO from Oakville in my gallery. Feel free to comment.

hey thanks guys. not sure how to get the black in the sky unless i would have taken the shot a couple minutes earlier. i like the one of Toronto that you took very nice the one i took was with a 300mm lense from bronte harbor downtown oakville and thats what i got.

Both have very nice light. In the first I may have wanted to crop in a little closer to the tower, but thats just personal taste. On a whole the composition seems pretty good. Some may prefer not to have the glare of the sun in shot. Which 300mm lens did you use for the second shot out of interest? I think the composition is ok, but perhaps you are just too far away from the city (even with that 300!) for it to make a real impact on me. Theres just too much blank sky for my liking, even though its a nice coloured sky!

Well done anyway, getting up in the morning is half the battle
