Yup! The immense surge in population density in all the downtown neighbourhoods has really helped day-to-day street life as well.

That’s really nice. Looks a little like Prague.

Keep it to yourself next time if you're not going to provide further explanation. For instance, is it the photo's composition? Is it the photo's colouring? Is there not a single building from the dozens shown that doesn't meet your standards?

Sorry sir, didn't mean to offend or contravene regulations. This being the skyline thread, I thought the unsightliness of many of the buildings and the way they sit together was obvious.

Obviously that isn't obvious I think it's a stunning photo, hence why I posted it. The 2 or 3 ugly buildings that actually stand out pale in comparison to the beauty of the right 2/3 of the photo.

Thanks for the explanation... At first, it just seemed like you were trying to be a dick.

Canadian skylines are full of unsightly buildings. It's not obvious so it's prudent to give a proper explanation to keep this thread a skyline thread. Thanks for trying to offer an explanation for why this photo stand outs from every other photo with only a hint of obnoxiousness. I'm going to conclude you're just being a homer fanboy.

I guess some parts of SSP are still hissy fit central. In light of how much certain posters in this thread take such personal offence at expressing opinions about unattractive skylines/urban vistas, I think from now on I'll stick to insulting your mothers.
