That's really an awesome shot! That may be the first time I've actually liked the skyline from that angle. and it's all down to Shangrila balancing things out and reducing FCP's over dominance.

The pic almost reminds me of Minneapolis!

That's kinda neat how the props on the wind turbine turned out with the longer exposure.

^ HDR doesn't involve longer exposure. 3 pics with different exposures were merged, so you don't get the nice effect you get with long exposure. In any case it doesn't look good and I can't believe I've been doing HDR in the past. By chance I stopped so my reputation is safe.

Nah man. Just high on life. This weather has all the honies on the street wearing next to nothing.

Feels like July and its March.

You can help but see the positive when things are rolling so beautiful like this.

Coquitlam, being out in the sticks on the side of a mountain, will not, does not need to, and shouldn't achieve downtown densities, hence point towers look so weird there. I wouldn't mind if an earthquake flattened all those towers and we hire BIG to replace them with mid-rises that won't blind us with 40 stories of spandrel. Same goes for most of the suburban skylines actually.

Why not achieve high densities in the town center? The amenities that come with high density would be a benefit to people in Coquitlam and make it, and other town centers an attractive option to living in VanCity.
