Color of Sunlight by UrbanRural-Photo Color of Sunlight by UrbanRural-Photo
Location: Harborview Park, at the foot of the Harborview Medical Center, corner of 8th Avenue and Jefferson Street, First Hill.

Notes and Tips: The park is fairly shabby, with only the views (as accompanied by the continuous, low roar of traffic from Interstate Highway 5) to recommend it. It sees frequent visitors in the form of hospital staff taking breaks. To make full use of your visit, you might like to inquire at the West Entrance Main Lobby of the Medical Center about views from within the building. A positive response might lead to a place where you can look westwards as you were in the park (front desk was not letting me in today), as well as eastwards towards the Cascade Mountains. Harborview Park offers 180º views over the "back side" of Seattle and port. There is quite a good view over the Safeco Field baseball stadium. The buildings along I-5 to the north block views of Elliot Bay and the Olympic Mountains.
Best time for photos is in the AM.

Lessons Learned: The proper control of light when bracketing in manual mode is a skill that needs to be learned. I found today that in the 43+ seconds that it take to shoot a set of bracketed images, the area lighting has changed by a half step. With my new technique of shooting 9 images for one HDR, I noted that I did not have to change the settings because of the change in lighting. But I did find that it is important to watch the in camera light meter to make sure I was at the right shutter speed. But not having to touch the camera after every 3 frames assisted in a sharper finial product.

:clap: Bravo. It is a skill to catch the feel of the magic lighting at that time. The buildings are painted with such warmth. Just lovely. I would have cropped the tree on the left side of the frame as I found it added little to such a great capture. Well done.
