haha...

problem with closing our borders to immigration is that Canada has a negative growth rate... apparently we don't like to have babies.... so we need other countries to do it for us.

however, there would be tons of benefits to closing down the borders or making the immigration standards a lot higher. I'm sure our income taxes wouldn't be nearly as high if we didn't have to pay for everyone else to live who aren't paying their own way...

there's a lot of people who take disability and unemployment who really don't need either, but are just lazy. And i'm sure you guys in the states get a lot of that too.

oh well. I'm curious to see what's going to happen with our gov't in the next little while, we just had an election yesterday as our government was overturned back in march due to the PM spending a little more money then he was admitting to. Could be interesting times ahead....

Canadian women are hot, which is why I married one and had babies with her. She hates the snow and ice. It might get to be 80 today.

do you want to adopt another canadian???? SF is pretty nice

I'm s little old to be considered a baby though....

and hell yes canadian women are hot!!! and i like that they don't want babies too much

the snow and ice is killer. but it does let you know what time of year it is.

what part of Canada is she from?

If i had a choice, I think i'd live in BC, and I might be getting that choice soon, time will tell.

Unless you look like a cat, I won't adopt you.

haha, up untill this winter, they pretty much only ever got snow like 2 times per year, and it would never last more then a day...

this year has been an exception though, it's snowed several times and lasted 2 days at a time

should have seen it where i am this year...... rediculous amounts of snow... Makes me want to move to Vancouver just so i can deal with 4 snows per year

and unfortunatly if i looked like a cat, i'd be about a 6'4.5" tall cat lol...

One thing about all of his pictures
Where in the world is his watermark?
Only thing about this photo is that it looks like smog. By themselves either element, ( NYC/ sunrise) would look fine.

Nothing wrong with your picture. Mention NYC/LA and smog is the first thing that would pop into my head. If it had said Philadelphia, I wouldn't have said anything about smog. Prejudiced I guess. I have a Mono lake picture with the same color in the sunrise.

i wasn't sure about you're comment but I don't mind negative comments. I think it will make me see things differently and help make my photos better

All I will do is stop it down,lowest ISO,exposure compensate and use a CP as a last resort. Very "ghetto" but it works. No filters? Shoot early or late and get those really long times.

My turn for critique. Taken awhile back- Naptime. Don't like the blanket but I lack the PS skill for that one.

looks pretty good, of course the blanket is there, but you already know that

i personally would have liked to see the nose a bit more in focus along with the eye, but that's a personal preference thing, it looks pretty good, exposure looks good too from my limited photography skills point of view.

I think I was doing a Bokeh test on the cat, too concentrated on the "eye in focus" to figure out the nose was centered in the picture.
Now that you mention it,the nose and eye should have been sharp given that composition.
