This image is all over Pinterest, but I wasn't able to track down its origin. Does anyone know what building this is supposed to be?View attachment 180404
The big one in the foreground? That's Aura at College Park.
Also, please link the image source if that isn't your original photo

Sorry about that. I just changed it. I hope I did it correctly.

You mean that is an actual photo? I thought it was altered. I've seen plenty of distortions/optical illusions of the Toronto skyline, but this is one of the most astounding I've seen.

It's definitely edited, but still a real photo. Not sure what distortion you're referring to beyond telephoto compression

"Telephoto compression" may be the technical term for it, but as a lay person, when I see a building twice the height of another looking about equal in height, I find it astounding. Thanks for shedding light on this for me.
