Block of Seattle by UrbanRural-Photo Block of Seattle by UrbanRural-Photo
So cold this morning. Walking to my location in Gaswork Park all I could see is frost on the grass and the concrete. I was late getting out there this morning so I did not capture the sun coming up over the city but the clarity of the sky and the air was just perfect. I was going to call it a day and turn around and go back home but I said what the hey. Go thing I didn’t cause this was one of the better shoots this year. I got 4 good shots out of this one but I need to crop the second pano down to fit the print sizes. But I was able to get the normal 3 image HDR and a 6 image HDR and the pano is a 9 image photomerge HDR.

This is one of the best shots of Seattle I've seen. I am in love with this picture! Something I'd really love to hang up, too. Perhaps I will buy a print really soon!

Why thank you for pointing that out. I think weather is something that should be taken in account for photography and I like to help with the info when I can.

I think the square format is perfect for this shot - you can really appreciate the skyline without it going on forever. The reflection and colors are perfect too!

For Some reason, maybe he thought it would look better, but this pic has been flipped horizontally in order to allow the space needle to appear on the right instead of the left. kinda weird, just thought everyone should know this is not how it really looks :)
