i don't usually shoot cityscapes, but today was one of those glorious days when one feels like doing something just a bit unusual. so i took my cameras into Seattle, set up at Kerry Park overlooking the north end of downtown, and took some shots. most were with my 30D, since its resolution and format lend themselves well to large prints (e.g. 18x24), but i got some with my FZ20 as well. you couldn't pay me enough to live in Seattle, but it's still a very picturesque city on warm fall evenings...

this one was from early evening, well before sundown...



and this about 45 minutes after...

Wow!

Thought I would get that "futuristic" feeling only with crazy silhouettes of chinese boomtowns. In the second pic it looks somewhat futuristic and old fashioned as well.

And in the first pic the majesty of the mountain and the city don`t contrast but complement one another.

Impressive.

DidnĀ“t they use this Saucer in MIB?

Cheers,

The "saucer" used in MIB was in New York. The name escapes me at this moment, but they are alongside Arthur Ashe Stadium and Shea Stadium, where the Mets play.

Squirl033, what is wrong with Seattle? I have never been there, so I am interested to hear your opinion. I like the shots you took by the way. I too like the mountain in the background in the first pic, and I typically like night shots of cityscapes. Good job.
