Vancouver is the star attraction at the moment, & here's a sunset shot I took from the Burrard Street Bridge above False Creek Ferry, in October 2008. I've dodged shadows & burned in oe highlights, here.

"The 2010 Winter Olympics, officially the XXI Olympic Winter Games or the 21st Winter Olympics, is a major international multi-sport event held on February 12–28, 2010, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, with some events held in the resort town of Whistler, British Columbia and in the Vancouver suburbs of Richmond, West Vancouver and the University Endowment Lands. Both the Olympic and Paralympic Games are being organized by the Vancouver Organizing Committee (VANOC). The 2010 Winter Olympics will be the third Olympics hosted by Canada, and the first by the province of British Columbia."

Burrard bridge is named after a local Indian tribe, (First Nations people), that used to inhabit these parts.

Hi Chris,

A colorful sky at the peaceful hours of the day, make this work so pleasing to the eyes!

Great sharpness and perfect POV with natural colors. The parked motor boats add great contrast to the silhouettes present overall in this work. Well done!

best greetings,

I have to say that a shot like this is very difficult to scan - with the very dark areas to the very light but this looks good..
Nice composition with the bridge to the left and the marina below - great to see the sunset reflected against the boats below..

Very nice clouds with the warm casr of sunset in these reddish-purple hues!
A nice high POV with the bridge dominating on the left balanced well with the marina on the other side.
A nice composition, well seen and neatly presented.

Hi Chris,
splendid image.
A clever idea we present this picture in Vancouver.
You absolutely right, this city is at the moment attraction.
Excellent POV, congratulations.

Hello Chris,

A most extraordinarily textured sky which is finely reflected in the water and makes a wonderful setting for the silhouetted structures softly lit boats.
I was most surprised to find that it was Canada. I perceived it as an Eastern country!

I will be hooked to the Winter Olympics at every opportunity!

Have a good w/e,
Bev :-)
