A partial view of Granville Island Market & of some downtown buildings of Vancouver.I liked the warmth of the lighting on the government docks as with the reflections in the water,perhaps the bridge could have been a bit more detailed but I did not want it to be the main focus.

Hey Ronald,
Nice to meet you here:)
Your photo looks like "The Termite City" for me, with all those reddish colors in it.
I like it as I always liked your cityscape photos on trekearth.
Amazing how well the square format works for this photo,it couldn`t be better, in my opinion.
Lets make a long story short:I like it!:)
See you around here,Ron.

a busy powerful image with immense detail and use of similar tonalities
i dont know where to look at the image and then realise its all image...
full to the brim

Wow Ron... I love this.
It's very crowded with lights, but it sure shows a lot of details... and besides, it IS a huge city picture...
Nice warm lights and a great composition.


Hi Ronald
Very beautiful panoramic nocturnal view of Vancouver, the warm
colours and the many many light make for a superb presentation.
You could also tittle it "Bright Lights Big City". TFS

To see this is a real treat. I left Vancouver in 73 so you can imagine how thrilling I find this photo.
You managed to capture so much with a lot of sharpness and great reflections.
Well done and thanks for sharing Ron

Vancouver at night is superb. What a great shot Ron. A beautiful powerful shot !

Well done.




Vancouver is on one of my "places to visit soon" list. With photos like this, you've added excitement to my dream. Looks like fun! I agree with you about the bridge. Great lighting, reflections, and contrasts. My eyes just go everywhere in this photo.

tfs, Lisa

in thumbnail preview size, it looked a bit too busy. but i'm glad i opened the full size image. a very attractive and detailed night shot with great lights. thanks ron.

interesting colours, nice composition, fine exposure

Hi Ron,
this is wonderful, very evocative. I love the lighting in the buildings behind the bridge and on the boats in the foreground. The "cluttered yet simple" composition works really well too. Well spotted and well shot.
Cheers, John.

Bonsoir Renald,
Beautifull picture of Vancouver by night, Great composition and colors , Excellent POV. and light , very clear picture and details..Very well done.
Many thanks for your comments to my picture : 400 Post..

Hi Ronald,

A great scene, the chaos of light, steel and concrete make a really difficult to capture shot. You have got a lot of atmosphere into this.

I love it

Very nice nocturnal shot, Ron. I like the light very much and the beautiful reflections. Granville Island is one of my favorite places to visit when I am there so I really enjoy this. Stunning detail and very true. Excellent.

Hi Ronald

Hello Ronald

Excellent nocturnal shot.The exposure and lighting are wonderful.
This POV makes the city look amazing.The human development just rises up from the natural element and goes skyward for what seems forever.
A true testament to man's ability.
Great details.

Hi Ron ,
The colors are absolutly beautifull . Very nice capture of this modern city . Great contrast between the skyscapers and the market building .

Very impressive job Ronald.
Thanks from jan
