Another of my light chasing photographs. I wanted to catch the city just before the sun went down to get the golden glow.

In my haste, I put a stupid title on this photograph. It is Seattle, Washington, USA. I took it three hours before the submission deadline and just titled it its nickname, The Emerald City. I love how so many members appreciated the lighting. The sun was just about to go below the horizon in the west and this is looking east toward the city. It also helped that the usual dark, gray, dreary sky was unusually crystal clear blue. I was pleasantly surprised at the blue reflections in the windows, I didn't expect that effect. To all of those who saw what I wanted you to see, thank you! Someone once said that timing is everything in photography.

Wow, a stunning looking city - all the buildings are colour coordinated! Must remember to look where this was shot.
Composition is excellent and I am so jealous of that clear blue sky. Great work, well done.

Wonderful composition. I can't see any people anywhere, good one! This looks like an early morning shot right? That sky is amazing, I hope you do well with this.

Where is this? It looks a bit like Boston, but I can't be sure.

Interesting red cast to everything... seems like a late afternoon/sunset image, but facing away from the sun. I think it would work well as a stock photo.

Wonderful near sunset photo of Seattle! Isn't the walkway a stronger, brighter red? (Could be a faulty memory!) 9 Swash

Stunning shot. Incredibly sharp and clear, and the repetition of patterns is just remarkable. Your lighting was great that day as well! Beautiful work!

Nice cityscape photo. Great DOF on this shot. Could've used a bit more exposure I think, or a little more sun. I like the stuff right down on the water, but it could use a little more detail. Overall a pretty nice pic though.

Good catch on the sunlight, it really warms the shot. Good job.

Good Job! Color and focus are very good and there is space for text. Could be useful for stock.

the bridge so close takes away from the city scape... which is shot a a very nice angle... also, try a polerizing filter for a deep blue sky tone

Is this for reals? Very pretty shot and not a soul in sight. Love the rusty color through out the city.

Nice skyline. Clouds in the sky would add depth to this photo. You might also try shooting a similar shot at twilight or even at night. Skylines of major cities can be a major part of a stock photographer's money-making portfolio so you've chosen a good subject. I'm not too keen on the "steel cage" at the left side of the photo. It breaks the view of the city and distracts the eye. I would try a slightly different viewpoint. The color of the light on the buildings is very nice.

Nice colors and sky. A little confusing for me.

Nice perspective on the city, the bridge leads you right into it.

I really like how you have used the lighting in this shot to your advantage. Also the bridge in the foreground helps to break up the landscape and add some interest.

Very nice stock shot. Would be great for anything from a postcard to an annual report.

This is really an interesting photo, but for some reason I am missing a good focal point. My eyes roam all over, without being drawn into one specific scene?? I will still rate it high, because it is a gorgeous photo.
