Saturday Snapshot - Toronto


Toronto, with some photoshop flair! A visiting relative took this photo. The little building in the middle is the Gooderham Building, styled after New York City's Flatiron Building. The two big towers are bank buildings and the CN Tower is there in the background.

Love all the special effects we are able to do nowadays.

Looks like you had a bit of fun with this one. Fun effects :-)

Kay said...

That looks really cool. It could be a poster or framed piece of art.

I love the neonization of this photo. I've never been to Toronto. I should put it on my list of places to visit. Here's Mine

Very colourful! I like it.

I am trying to fit in a trip to Toronto this summer...cool filter!

Carolyn said...

What would the feature be called that produced this unusual effect?

Mary R. said...

Great picture! I love the effects you added, makes it very pop-art looking.

Oh, I do enjoy the special effects! I like playing around with photos...I usually have a site that I go to for that, but they're closing down.

Your result is like a very artistic postcard...

Time to consider downloading my own photo editing!

Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

Peppermint Ph.D. said...

so cool how we can add all these layers and filters and literally create a work of art with our photos! :)

Irene said...

We do have some awesome sites, if we really look. Did I ever tell you I love your header. I do.

Nikki-ann said...

It's been a long time since I visited Toronto (11 years!), but I loved it there. I remember the Gooderham Building too :)

Alyce said...

How other-worldly it looks in those colors!

Leslie said...

What a fun shot! I like the artsy look.

Booksnyc said...

I would love to try some of these effects on my pictures - this one looks so cool!

Bookzilla said...

Looks like a bustling city. Torn between wishing I was there and being glad I live in a small, quiet town. :)

Here's my Saturday Snapshot. Happy weekend!

Trish said...

COOL PICTURE!!! I adore Toronto--wish that we could visit more often. I lived there when I was little and still have a lot of family in the area but just so expensive to fly from Texas!

Pooch said...

Glorious "minty" picture! Makes me think of spearmint and peppermint...trying NOT to think of Pepto-Bismol!! ;)

Cipriano said...

Toronto!
I just love it. On an annual basis my best friend and I spend a couple of days and nights there, frolicking and walking up and down Yonge Street a minimum of 800 times. -- I can't wait until our next four day venture a few weeks from now, staying at the Metropolitan Hotel.
I know this very street pictured here. Awesome!

Laura Armstrong said...

Your artistic blog is a lot of fun. Thx for hoppin' by my Saturday!

I think this is one of the coolest pictures of Toronto that I've ever seen. My son has a friend attending colleges there; I think I'll send her the link. This is a must see!
