I travel for work a fair bit, and when I have a chance I go and take pictures when I end up in an interesting place. 

I was in Montreal for a couple of days, but it was raining, so no pictures.  Today, I drove over to Toronto, so the first thing I did was snap a picture through a window in my hotel room (this is straight out of the cell phone with no adjustments).

Very nice.  iPhone or Android?

Also, do you take pictures in 4:3 format on purpose in a cellphone as opposed to 16:9 and why?  My Note 5 has the best resolution at 16:9.

Android (Pixel).

Most modern cell phones uses image sensors with native format being 4:3.

They window down to 16:9 for video.  

Note 5 was one of the few with native 16:9 aspect ratio.  Samsung got that out of their system with newer phones.

Quote Wow, you really know how to make good shots. I once went to Germany for work. Then there was a really heavy downpour, but you can't imagine how happy I was about it. I had to go to Munich, so I looked at the train schedule in advance in dbreiseauskunft.com and I chose the most convenient day for me, because it was raining then. I am a person who prefers rain to all other weather. I rode the train for 4 hours and looked out the window, there were even photos that my child accidentally deleted. God, this is such an unreal atmosphere. Dude, I sincerely envy you that you got there on that day :)

In terms of nature, California is beautiful and so is New Mexico.  In both place the problem is with the people and the government.

You can either drive to the top of the Sandia mountain or take a cable car.

I’m sorry Lynn, I couldn’t upload the video I didn’t know how to. I think I would’ve had to link to a different server like youtube and I didn’t wanna do all that so it’s just a picture of the video.

Hi Ilya, your photos are incredible, even if you took it with your cell. Also, the landscape from your hotel is amazing, I bet the sunrise can make the view 10 times better.

It's sad, you couldn't take any photos in Montreal I really want to see the city through the photos of a tourist. I love visiting new places as well and if you look for some new ideas, check http://https://www.africanjacana.com/ - https://www.africanjacana.com/ . They have some amazing places ranked by country which I find pretty convenient and cool. Can't wait to see your next pics from your vacations!

This picture from Toronto gives me eastern Europe vibes :) Only there can you see these grey tones, combined with a dark atmosphere. I remember I visited Russia a while ago, after winning a trip through Europe from a purveyor, and the scenery was just as dark as they tell on television. I wasn't fond of the feeling, but I guess everything feels heavy due to its tumultuous history and current president. It has some beautiful places to see, but I'll stick to something sunnier and happier :) What other places have you seen?

My colleague and I have sent so to speak on a work trip, which will last 3 months in Germany and a half. On a website  we purchased train tickets. As I understand it, if the practice in Germany will not last more than 90 days, you need to issue a work visa and the Schengen visa for a business visit. In addition, a work visa is not required if you will be interning on scholarships of the European Commission, working as an international student during the vacations, or interning in youth exchange programs for not more than three months. I think this work trip will bring a lot of value to my life.

The photo does look pretty good. I think you shot it on an iPhone. Did you get to Toronto by train? Many tourists can well afford to travel by plane, but they prefer trains because of their unique charm romance. Unlike an airplane, traveling by train offers more opportunities to experience the country's nature. See the colorful landscaping and have time to take pictures of it all. For me too, I choose the train, especially when you can easily plan a trip. What's the most interesting photo on your phone from other countries?

Wow, koshkin! Those photos are amazing!! Thanks for sharing them. You know, my wife and I are going to Switzerland at the end of October. It’s gonna be a fantastic trip. What do you think, guys? Btw, have any of you been to this country? I’ve fallen in love with Switzerland at first sight. So, next week we’ll be in Bilbao, Spain. Our friends invited us to have a http://https://www.freetour.com/bilbao - free tour Bilbao . So, guys, I’d highly appreciate any advice on where to go in Switzerland. We’ve already seen some recommendations on TripAdvisor, but I’d like to know your thoughts on that. Thanks in advance for your help, guys.
