A single exposure of the Toronto skyline. For this one I wanted to get everything into the frame to really showcase the beautiful colours that the city projects onto Lake Ontario. I purposely waited for the airplane to get passed the CN Tower because I wanted a shot of it crossing over the city without anything obstructing it.

I've learned a lot about using my DSLR in the last few months. I think this shot is a great improvement over a similar one I took about a month ago (Skyline). After seeing this one I was going to take Skyline down, but I decided to leave it up as a reminder to keep getting better :)
