I don't agree. I think the skyline is decent. If you lined up all of the North-South highrises in an East-West manner, the skyline would be much more oft praised.

Communist? Holy shit, dude. Well, there are a lot of us that like our communist tower. It might be advisable to not visit. Some Marxist-Leninist might indoctrinate you.

Flar: Love the Skydome shot with the roof almost closed! I also noticed your thread in urbantoronto. You're certainly doing the Horseshoe a great service. Keep up the great work.

Communist?

Ever vigilant on the lookout for communists down there in North Carolina?

In any case, I guess you can't please all of the people all of the time, but
you have certainly pleased most of us with your beautiful photos, Flar!
Job well done, and we look forward to seeing more!

I love Toronto - it's kinda like Melbourne in an alternate reality.

Great shots.

Toronto gets a 10/10 for its skyline. Wonderful skyscrapers.

+1 for its huge baseball stadium I guess. Baseball itself is a ridiculous game so I deduct 1 point from Torontos score. I deduct another 2 for that picture of the junk food peddler.

8/10 for me. Yeah mate I know this isnt a rate your skyline thread, but oh gee what a brilliant set of scrapers you blokes have put up there its just wonderful.
