great picture and intriguing shapes. not sure why you named it 'christmas in seattle' - christmastime or not, christmas doesn't seem to play into this photo at all, so having it in the title seems arbitrary. I say this only because this is an excellent image, and it deserves an excellent title.

Seen this one of yours before, but honestly, I never get tired of it. Superb composition, great colors. I like that you can see a little of the interior space so it doesn't just look like an abstract frame.

One of the best shot in this challenge, should be top 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very very nice! The natural and rather original shapes (can't tell what it is) used to frame the tower and city skyline really adds wonderful interest to this image. The colours and lights have been captured beautifully to say the least.

Just saw your win of this at BetterPhoto - congratulations!

The picture is greate, quality very good, nice comp, good symitry
It may be my computer but I think there is a lot more that you could do with this picture seems a little flat some depth would give it some life. Im thinking you will return to this picture often and rework it.

I always enjoy going to Kerry View Point. Great perspective here through the art piece.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the interest that the window gives here. Nice city shot. Great focus and lighting. However, had the window not been there, I think I would have liked it a tad better. The window "almost" brings to much dark to the overall capture. So a (9) from me.

Fantastic framing and tones.

Interesting composition and good lighting of the needle. The framing is much more interesting than the usual photos of this item.

Love how this shapes from the window are included in this composition. It really adds a dramatic and artistic flare to the downtown scene of seattle. I love how one 'panel' you see the landmark Needle. Again the windows create an interesting shaped panel look that turns this downtown scene into a dynamic and dramatic eyecatching photo.
