Cage by Kennethy512 Cage by Kennethy512
A hotel in downtown Toronto

*************************************
*************************************

Wow, a daily deviation - I wasn't expecting to log in this morning seeing such a response! Many thanks for the faves, watches, and feedback!

I have since found out that the building I was photographing belongs to the Sheraton Centre Hotel in downtown Toronto, on Queen street between Bay street and University avenue, directly south of City Hall.

For those of you who asked how this was taken - I took this at ground level looking upwards at the north face of the building. I simply corrected for perspective distortion in Photoshop afterward, making it appear that I shot the photo head on. I then cropped it and made some colour adjustments.

Once again, I appreciate the response - thank you all so much for choosing my photo to be a Daily Deviation! :)

I really like the black and white tones over the entire image, that really makes the man wearing blue near the middle stand out. You've really obtained a great amount of contras, and the composition is so symmetrical and has such strong lines, I found myself drawn to it even as a thumbnail on the bottom of the page. Great job.

Big cities... Ahhh, let me out in the wilderness!!! But really though, sometimes I look at all these skyscrapers and feel so claustrophobic...

But it's a very nice photo indeed!

True... the crowded streets and walls of tall glass do give a sense of claustrophobia at times.

It's kind of sad, actually.... Was man supposed to live like this? Maybe I'm just rather biased, because I live with miles and miles of open land all around me. :D

AMAZING picture though!

LOL There are so many buildings like that downtown. Then again, I live GTA north, so seeing this kinda thing is not often for me. I love the perspective. It looks endless when it really isn't.

Very nice photo...sort of looks like a circuit board or other electronic component!
This must've been one of those condos near Victoria Harbour right, west side of Kowloon?

The lack of perspective gives the impression that this photograph was taken from a long ways away. It's quite amazing.
