Urban landscapes: the photographer’s viewpoint

PHOTOGRAPHING THE RIVER AND SKYLINE, CALGARY, ALBERTA

By January, the Bow River is usually almost totally frozen over, but this western Canadian province has yet to experience a deep freeze. That meant it was possible to photograph the fully lit downtown skyline reflected in the open water.
I have, of course, the original full-colour version (made on my iPhone), but transforming everything into monotone except the ‘live view’ on the camera back makes for a cool picture.
PS: can anyone guess what that strange filter is sticking up on the front of the camera?
