In 1957 an international competition was held for a design of a new city hall. A total of 520 designs were received from 42 different countries. The winner of the competition was Finnish architect Viljo Revell. In 1965 Toronto's fourth city hall opened and still serves as the home of the city's council. The 27 storey east tower and the 20 storey west tower surround the saucer shaped council chamber. The saddest part of the history of our current city hall is that Revell died of a heart attack at 54 years old just 10 months prior to the opening ceremonies and never got to see his vision completed.

"When finished, the building generated controversy among many people who felt that it was "too futuristic" for the city." (Thank you to a Wikipedia contributor for that piece of information) :)

Brian, how long was your learning curve to do this great post processing work? Great black levels. Do you have any advice on where I should start down the path to acquire the skills to accomplish this kind of artistry with my B & W's? I live full time in an RV so I have virtually no wall space to hang your work. Surely other people are buying your beautiful images?
