Nice shot! Congrats on your 6th place! I was just there a few weeks ago and had an amazing evening with my best friend ( Rebel 350 XT).

It was taken from Kerry Park on Queen Ann Hill (W. Highland Dr.). This was my first time visiting this spot, and I now understand why it is probably the most photographed viewpoint of Seattle. My photo only shows a small piece of this phenomenal view - I highly recommend visiting this location!

They can knock it all they want - you got sixth, baby!! Congrats to my heretofore unknown neighbor to the east. :) You did a fantastic job on this. Congrats and I expect I will see much more of you in the top of the challenges.

Nice job. DSLR for two months.....Very nice job.

I realize some folks knocked this down due to lack of originality. However, considering that I've only had a D-SLR camera for 2 months, I am THRILLED at being able to get this kind of shot. If people think it looks just like the pro shots, then I'm not complaining. This is just the beginning of my learning adventure. :^)

Thanks for all the great comments and scores.

The lights in the back round are too distracting.

Beautifully executed, but I had to drop it to a nine because, although it is gorgeous, it is like most postcards of the same scene. It needs something to make it stand out from the rest(but it did stand out from the others in this competition)!

excellent!! top 3 for sure!

Nice capture.

I don't give a lot of 10s because I really find very few "perfect" shots but this one is about a close as they come, so I'm bumping it to a 10. Can't find a thing I'd change. You should sell prints!

Living in Seattle myself, I've seen this shot dozens of times but your's is really well composed and you nailed the white balance. Well done.

This shots too easy. I've seen it EVERYWHERE. The exposure is nice though.
04/12/2007 11:27:44 PM
Great shot of the needle! Where did you take this?
04/12/2007 05:39:41 PM
I'm moving there this fall, can't wait to take awesome pictures like this one! :)
04/12/2007 09:34:00 AM
