Beautifully done Tom. I love this.

Best regards, Tom

Thanks Tom, I was worried it was too dark. I'm pleased you like it.

Great late day shot Tom. Just enough light in the sky for the buildings to stand out. The eight second exposure seems to work just right for the automobile lights.


Tom Ringold on November 11, 2008

Thanks Larry. I got to this spot just in time and rattled off about 6 shots. This was really the only keeper. It's kind of a popular spot so I was hoping for something a little different.

Very well done, Tom! The dark adds just a touch of mystery and gives excellent contrast with the streaming light. Marilyn

My, my, it is just great. I've always wanted to see a good shot from this angle, but this shot is, evidently, well beyond the adjective "good." I agree with Marilyn and Larry—the lighting is just perfect. It adds to the alluring, sophisticated look of Downtown Seattle. What a photogenic city, and what a great photographer to photograph it.

Best wishes,

Thank you for encouragement Marilyn and Andres! This is one of those places that is hard to present a unique rendition of. I am very glad it struck a cord.

Very nicely done! Just perfect! I've only been to Seattle once, but I agree it is a beautiful city.
