Is it just me, or are Hiltons usually the ugliest buildings in every city?

I'd say the TD towers or the Cityplace Towers in London take the cake for ugliest twin office and ugliest twin residential in a major ontario city.

That Montreal shot looks quite odd.

Almost like the reflection effect was added afterwards.

It was definitely added afterwards, there is no way you can see the reflection on the river from so far away (the river is 3 km wide and the buildings are 2 km away from the shore) Plus, you wouldn't see the reflections on the St.Lawrence river because of the currents. It looks cheap.

That's what I thought. Thanks for the clarification.

The things people do to photographs really blows my mind, there is no need for adding extra crap like that.

the Saskatoon shot is amazing. ol toon-town is denser and more beautiful than most think. also there is lots of street life here during the day. the streets are usaly packed, sidewalks as well. they are always doing something downtown Saskatoon. festivals are the norm here. street parties of some sort near every weekend during the summer. and the street car show is second to none. jazz festival will pack most of downtown when it happens.
