Image is nicely composed, well balanced and with an effective eye-catcher!

Hi Alan,
Very well composed image with fine details and beautiful light. Very well done! Annie

PS/ Since the site is moved, the easterner TL have three hours time difference! We are awake!!!

Excellent image with perfect exposure time of 1/15th of a second. The blue sky tels me that you either took this an hour or less before the sun came up or an hour or less after it went down.
My only advice here would be to stop down to f/7 oor so for more detail with a tripod. Of course this is handheld so it's perfectly normal that you used 2.8.
I'd be proud of this shot, good composition and colors.
Well done my friend,

Hi Alan
Seattle is a beautiful city and you have captured it so well. I love the sparkling lights from the downtown buildings. Your composition of the buildings and the Space Needle are well chosen. The colours are great.
TFS Janice

your best version of that POV
excellent colours

Hi Alan,
Thats a beautiful picture. Clear details.

Hi Alan !
nice 'blue hour' capture here. I'm feeling that perhaps the exposure could have been 1 stop lower.. but i could be wrong on that :-)

Well done.
Best regards, Daniel

Alan, since this is a night shot of the skyline of Seattle, I, personally would have liked to see the sky darkened and the lights of the buildings enhanced more. Eliminating the overall blue color and tone and darkening the overall composition would have accomplished this. Check out my workshop. Just a suggestion.
