Seattle by whitelouis Seattle by whitelouis
My try at the skyline of Seattle, I know it's nothing special and it's been done a million times, but here it is.

ISO200

Dude, I've seen many photos of city skylines, and this is in my personal list of the top five best. Very good. Every picture is unique.

It turned out beautiful!
And, it's a Seattle Skyline you don't see
very often. At least not as much as the Needle side
of Seattle. It's nice to see a beautiful Seattle Skyline without the Space Needle :)

Great job! ISO 200 worked well.
Also, I find this refreshing becuase it's not from Kerry Park on QA Hill.

Beautiful city! I only been to Seattle once but once was enough to make me love it! Nice SHOT!

P.S. Did you use a tripod at all?

Great call on using ISO 200, this turned out extremely sharp and noiseless. What tripod are you using?

I think this is one of my sharpest images, and I actually surprised myself with how well it came out with so many lights. As for the tripod...it was on sale for about $50 last Christmas break when I was in Montana, I needed something to work with so I bought it. It's not bad until I try to flip the camera up on it's side, it never stays at perfectly vertical so I always have to rotate things in photoshop a little bit. And sometimes when the wind blows really hard it tries to knock the whole thing over, I guess that's my fault for not hanging a weight in the middle.

Yay for Seattle...usually :p
I've never taken any cityscapes like this one (which is great by the way), but I have seen a nice vantage point from I-5 heading from Renton. I could see the cranes on the waterfront and almost the whole city. I really want to find a hill near SeaTac and get some panoramas of the city during a sunset :D

whitelouis Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2007  Hobbyist Photographer
Hmm...SeaTac is kind of far south, but you should try the Skyway area, there's some pretty nice views to be had from there, but be careful after dark, it's not the nicest place.

This is a great shot. Very well executed, if you ask me. I love these kinds of shots. I plan to work on something like this in the summer, when it's not so cold outside.

Ahh just bundle up and do it while your motivated, then by summer time your skill will have evolved a bit more and you can get other shots or retake old ones with your better talent :)

Thank you :) None of the other ones I took that night came out quite this good, I was actually really amazed at how sharp everything is/was. Even at 200% it still looked pretty good :)

fwar that's great seems to have exposed really well without overexposure.. I'm still trying to get good at that.. keep it up..

:iconwhitelouis:
whitelouis Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2007  Hobbyist Photographer
Well, I took several different exposures of this same shot trying to get it right, and when I did get the city exposed right I used photoshop to lighten up the bottom of the photo a little bit, the buildings and what not. It all comes with time/practice :)

I have no experience with photoshop does it really help that much... give you a bit of an edge?
Reply
:iconwhitelouis:
whitelouis Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2007  Hobbyist Photographer
Eh, I suppose it can, but I feel like it's cheating to use it too much. I only lightened it about 10% to make it less contrasting to the top. Generally, I try to photoshop stuff as little as possible.

heh, thanks. it just seems that there's so many of this same picture floating around, it's one of the popular vantage points for Seattle. over the summer when I'm back I'll have to drive around and get some more unique ones, see if I can't get one that is special to me :P
