Part view from the down-town of Bellvue.
Bellevue is a rapidly growing city in the Eastside region of King County, Washington, United States, across Lake Washington from Seattle. Long known as a suburb or satellite city of Seattle,it is now categorized as an edge city or a boomburb.The population was 122,363 at the 2010 census.
Downtown Bellevue is undergoing rapid change. It is currently the second largest city center in Washington state with over 35,000 employees and 5,000 residents.Based on per capita income, Bellevue is the 6th wealthiest of 522 communities in the state of Washington.In 2008, Bellevue was named number 1 in CNNMoney's list of the best places to live and launch a business.More recently,Bellevue was ranked as the 4th best place to live in America.The name "Bellevue" is French for "beautiful view".
Sports and recreation
Since the 1970s, the city has taken an active role in ensuring that its commercial development does not overwhelm its natural land and water resources.Today, the Bellevue Parks and Community Services Department manages more than 2,500 acres (10 km2) of parks and open spaces, including the Downtown Park and the Bellevue Botanical Garden, as well as several playgrounds, beach parks, and trails. More than 5,500 Bellevue residents participate in volunteer activities through this department annually.
Bellevue was home to the American Basketball Association team, the Bellevue Blackhawks. The Blackhawks in 2005, despite being ranked 13th in the league, made it to the championship game in front of 15,000 fans in Little Rock, Arkansas.The team has been inactive since 2006.

ωραία και καθαρή φωτογραφία από το κέντρο της πόλης του Bellvue.Τα πολυόροφα μοντέρνα κτήρια είναι πράγματι εντυπωσιακά με τα χρώματα και τον φωτισμό της ημέρας να τα αναδεικύουν.

Bonjour, cher ami Danos,
Les immeubles s'amusent à vouloir toucher le ciel et prendre des figures modernes.
L'ensemble se détache merveilleusement sur ce ciel griffé ici et là de superbes nuages.
Très bonne présentation.
ikeharel (51533) 2011-10-22 1:16
City skyline showing the clouds and shadows play on the buildings, Danos.
Fine clear view, and each building has a diff. color.

Well seen and expertly done! Quite a great sky too! Lovely soft light from what perhaps is the late afternoon? Some nice subtle reflections from some of the buildings. A very pleasing scene! Warm regards,
wolf38 (30142) 2011-10-22 6:13
Hello Danos. Beautiful view. I agree. The skyscrapers are impressive. But beauty is of course a relative term. With Greece, it is not comparable. But if you travel, you photographed. Worth seeing. Rgds, Wolfgang.
Sonata11 (33111) 2011-10-22 7:46
this view is stunningly beautiful. Architecture looks amazing show its modern beauty. I love this POV, fantastic colors, sharpness, clarity of so many details with gorgeous sky which reflect on those buildings. Great picture. Awesome. Perfectly well done.

TFS and have a nice weekend
josepmarin (57465) 2011-10-22 9:45
a good visual angle for to catch the elegant architecture of the downtown, from a well chosen point of view.
The nice light increases the graphical beauty of the shapes and the geometry of these buildings, the colors are splendid, and the sky has a few really aesthetic clouds.
Excellent composition, my friend.
fabianoleite (9367) 2011-10-22 9:46
Excellent cityscape, hte buildings form a good composition, with a good portion of the street aiding. Good work, congratulations!
kato (11630) 2011-10-22 11:12
You're capturing well this skyscraper of Bellevue by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity. So, it's impressive to see many high buildings with modern style although it is visible to a minerals. And, here seems to the good place of air, too.
ls7902 (7314) 2011-10-22 13:10
Attractive buildings & skyline of this city. I like the dark colors and the cloudy blue sky. Regards. Latiff.
nobuikehonda (3848) 2011-10-22 13:41
Good morning Danos,
It is past five o’clock in the morning here. It’s very nice to see a new photo from the U.S. I have been looking at this image for some time now. In the presented image, there is this feeling of falling into a surrealistic world. It is a very positive feeling though. I love the skyline and the overall metallic quality, which dominates the photo. The image presented was taken during one afternoon, but the city seems to stand still. Love the sky and the clouds formation above. The photo is another great success, Danos. I love the overall image presented to us very much.
With my very best wishes,
Have a great weekend, Danos
Budapestman (82620) 2011-10-22 13:52

Hello Danos, Great view of the city of Bellvue. I lived in the Pacific Northwest for 20 years and am familiar with this city. Fast growing hi tech place. You have done an excellent job capturing the skyline of this new metropolis. Impressive composition and adherence to the horizon. Great use of the high f stop as well. Regards, Roger

abmdsudi (38878) 2011-10-23 20:45
Great urbanscape and great skyline line and perspective. The composition is effective with the shot sweeping the eyes towards the highrise buildings. Fabulous image with great dof and fabulous play of light and shadows rendering superb detail throughout and good contrasting colours. A truly fine capture. Congrats.
janusz2054 (2) 2011-10-24 4:00

Cricri (100395) 2011-10-24 11:21
Une jolie vue de ces buildings de hauteur différentes sous un ciel superbe, j'aime aussi les reflets, belle réalisation
clic (13922) 2011-10-24 12:56
Sorry for my delay Danos
It's an exciting view on Bellevue and you managed a fine setup by locating the main towers right on a vertical tier line, so the eyes lock on these.
The allover depiction is fantastic due to low light on city that conveys medium tones so informative.
TopGeo (38168) 2011-10-24 13:01
Γειά σου! Δάνος!
Με εντυπωσίασε η επιλογή σου!και η εκτέλεση!

csabagaba (6554) 2011-10-25 1:16
Modern ambience, modern buildings. American way of life. excellent image quality, beautiful colors. Ilie images, even in this architecture is acceptable :-)
I'm surprised that the picture is much plasticity.
Have a nice day.
skippy007 (12510) 2011-10-25 1:58
Hello Danos, What a beautiful view, well captured, it reminds me of my home town Melbourne. I like the nice warm tones that contrast well with the colder blue sky.
Thanks for the very informative note.

Very good composition: the two highest buildings
are now a catcher in the eye and despite the
many details, the picture pleasantly calmness.
Also the sharpness and light management are
p.s. My apologize for my late response.
mkamionka (29155) 2011-10-26 8:33
very interesting presentation from this less known destination in the USA.
Great composition with pleasant asymmetric design.
The perfect processing nicely enhanced the sky adding an attractive dramatic touch to the scene.
Very well done,
delpeoples (52305) 2011-10-26 18:44

marcan44 (6223) 2011-10-27 5:47
stupenda inquadratura che rispetta la regola canonica dei terzi con i due grattacieli sulla destra.
Colori naturali, cielo splendido, chiarezza di dettagli, composizione elegante.
paololg (31448) 2011-10-27 9:34
Ciao dear Danos,
interesting view of this modern city, where, reading your notes, I understand that the level of the life is very good. The perfect sharpness and the excellent clarity give the feeling that these skyscrapers are three-dimensional. Excellent photo work, dear friend, congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice Friday!
pierrefonds (54620) 2011-10-27 16:58
The distance between the street and the highrise buildings is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the highrise buildings. It is clear and sharp. Have a nice day.
nikkitta (12818) 2011-10-27 19:52
I always arrived when your photo has more than 100 points
Great for you!
Great also the wide capture of the main buildings of this ,up to now, unknown city to me
What calls more my attention is the beautiful sky
Also modern buildings are interesting to watch, different shapes, colors and lots of reflections
Very goood POV
francio64 (38264) 2011-10-28 15:56
bella ed equilibrata immagine di Bellvue in Washington, impreziosita dal bel cielo che fa da ottimo sfondo.
Bel contrasto tra luci ed ombre e ottimo sharp.
Longroute (19392) 2011-10-29 1:51
These well detached skyscrapers make a good photographic subject, with their imposing figures against the deep blue sky. The graphism is very fine and so are the colours and the reflections which give vitality to the image. The image has an excellent clarity which highlights all the small details and there is a great sense of spaces and volumes.
A very American cityscape!
siamesa (27703) 2011-10-29 6:58
Bom dia Danos
Amazing composition of the buildings and the fantastic sky. Perfectly captured.
Angshu (54517) 2011-10-29 22:12
Good view of the gleaming skyscrapers. Light is good as it reflects on the glass buildings. You've got a nice sky to top it up as well with the clouds. Well presented!
asajernigan (20117) 2011-10-30 8:50
This is a fine cityscape! The panoramic view is great allowing us to see much of the modern skyline. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has fine sharpness.

Γεια σου Δάνο,
Πόσο ενδιαφέρον και μοναδικοί είναι στα μάτια μας οι ουρανοξύστες. Εδω στην Ελλάδα δεν έχουμε τέτοια κτίρια και πάντα με συναρπάζει μια τέτοια σύνθεση. Πολύ όμορφος ουρανός και υπέροχα χρώματα.
aliabazari (10994) 2012-11-30 21:12

My first idea was about D.C. Washington, and I wanted to say that I don't remember similar blocks there, but I see this is West Coast. My friends did not recommended me to visit this State, 'cause the wet weather and bad climate etc... What can you say about?
