this is a powerful image any time from any angle. Juxtaposed by the ribver and park, it seems quite surreal here. Great comp and colours

Hi Chris. Good POV to show this place which hopefully will help deter war again in this region. Excellent clarity and colours. TFS. Murray.

Chris, nice POV, composition and colors.

Hi Chris,

A lovely photo of this Dome! Very vivid in details and colours! A monument full of unpleasant memories. Great POV with strong lead in line.

Well done

Hello Chris, interesting note. Great composition of the canal that leads our eyes to the end of the pic.

I love the contrasting colours of blue and green. Great sharpness, lovely sky. Realistic colours.

Great contrast of the new and the old architecture.

Great work! Have a good day! Yan :)

ps: thx so much for the crit on "Gatineau Park, Visitor Center". It was very useful!

Hi Chris,
Looks very peaceful. Can't imagine how this place must have looked on August 6, 1945.

Hi Chris,
interesting that that structure withstood the bombing and nice to see it amongst the new architechture. Very nice composition, the old mixed with the new. Very nice POV and good depth.

Strange to see a beautifull photo of a City that has known this strong horror. Mixed feelings but not for this photo Chris! Welldone TFS

Great vantage point you had here, Chris. This is a very well-balanced image with great perspective.

ps: I missed this bridge when i was there last year, maybe next time ;-)

Hi Chris,

Amazing how this structure took the blow and said no!!! Great POV, perspective and composition.

I like the depth and colours in this picture, Chris. Good job.

Best regards,


Just amazing! I have seen pictures of the blast, with this dome in it and total destruction everywhere?
