The 605 feet high Space Needle was built as the centrepiece for the 1962 World Fair. The observation deck is at 520 feet from which there are excellent views od Seattle, Puget Sound and the Cascade and Olympic mountains.
I took this photo close to the 'Chihuly Garden and Glass' exhibition, part of which can be seen in the picture. Dale Chihuly is the artist who designs the huge variety of blown glass creations. His work is included in more than 200 museum collections.

I have just opened the main TE gallery and this image immediately caught my eye. Clever composition, you made the most of these unusual shapes and wonderful colours.
Have a nice weekend

An interesting note and a very striking and appealing photograph in the strong and simple style of composition which you love and do so very well indeed.
The layout of all the elements in this picture is just perfect; the lines, shapes and forms work very well together, the colours are wonderfully vibrant and technically it is superb with spot-on exposure and stunning details and sharpness.

An excellent composition. Extremely artistic and very attractive.

Today I shall be very brief, as my move is imminent.
The photo is the way I visualize. Everyone has their way of seeing and each photo shows the personal signature of the photographer.
Best rgds, Wolfgang.

A pure blue sky and amazing "flowers" seeing from the bottom, that's a researched POV to get a simple but stunning colored picture!
timecapturer (49288) 2014-07-26 3:18
a landmark that is photographed regularly but not as originally as this. I love the contrast of lines, colours and the way you have cropped this image. It works so perfectly. A gem of a shot!
Enjoy your weekend - B.

A cleverly composed graphical that succeeds on a number of levels. Superb saturated colours matched by excellent clarity.
siudzi (34141) 2014-07-26 4:18
What a cool capture this! The composition was smartly built from a low and well selected POV with a beautiful clear blue sky in the background. Amazing and eye-catching visual effect was achieved. Very well done!
Have a nice weekend,
serp2000 (42048) 2014-07-26 5:01
Wow! Amazing designer's idea, thanks for so interesting composition. It reminds me photo experiences withe the trees. Marvelous colors, they said the sky of Seattle is not so clear and blue everyday. I see you have captured very good weather.;)
photoray (13638) 2014-07-26 5:47
Interesting juxtaposition, with Chihuly's outdoor glass art underneath Seattle's icon. No other clutter in your view to disrupt the two subjects.
Seattle has some of Earth's most interesting artworks, architecture, history, and characters. Gehry's works are very special.
Thanks for sharing,

You chose a perfect angle nice with the blue sky between the objects.
The red and yellow colours care for a pleasant contrast.
Sharpness and clarity are perfectly made.
Excellent composition excellent captured.
Nice presentation, very well done TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

bella inquadratura, la famosa torre di Seattle è attorniata da altre strutture molto colorate e il blu del cielo fa risaltare molto bene i soggetti.
Bellissima idea e magnifica realizzazione, molto originale.
holmertz (45132) 2014-07-26 7:30
This is an excellent composition with fine colours and you looked around well for the perfect POV. The combination of space needle and glass flowers (or whatever they're supposed to mean) is very amusing and extremely eye-catching. This is a smart photo that makes me smile.

Hello Ann - I am an insect looking up to the sky through a strange collection of flowers. How amazing they are. I love the luminous pink petals in various stages of unfurlment (is there such a word I wonder?) Your very strictly composed vertical frame works in a creative and balanced way and what a stroke of luck that the blue sky is almost featureless; it enhances the graphic look.
Super shot... what a great subject.
cornejo (35719) 2014-07-26 10:53
Hi Ann, very nice shot of this beautiful composition, well seen and captured, very good framing, sharpness, depth, light, color and quality, super nice job and very well done, congratulations my friend, thanks for sharing.
Good night and good Sunday.
Best wishes from southern Spain.
worldcitizen (7600) 2014-07-26 19:49
This is a fabulous composition and POV. I love the inclusion of the glass sculptures with the Space Needle. It's a unique and colorful view that I haven't seen before. Everything looks great against the clear, blue sky. Very nice! :-)
lousat (82448) 2014-07-27 1:51
Hi Ann,the choice of point of view makes the difference! Truly beautiful this perspective watching to the sky,and the red is the best colors to contrast the blue,great idea and top quality of detail and exposure,i like it! Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano
saxo042 (37606) 2014-07-27 6:48
An interesting composition with strong and attractive colours. A fine combination of the high tower with, as I presume, the much lower works of art. Well observed!
macjake (61358) 2014-07-27 8:27
you were so close to my hometown!
I live only about 2 hours north of here, just across the USA/Canada border.
Been to this location many times, and i never get tired of it.
I like how you show us a different view of the Space Needle, dynamic and attention grabbing for sure.
well done with the under lighting too.
Cricri (111309) 2014-07-27 8:59
Un POV qui donne de l'originalité, de beaux contraste dans les couleurs, le format et la qualité au top
mesutilgim (89044) 2014-07-27 22:54
Good observed and captured ! How many people may have seen this scenery but didn't take any notice of it.
You have created a nice capture with great graphical effect !
TYS and best regards

Hi Ann dear
I love this beautiful shot with attractive graphics. Exposure clarity and well performed. Congratulations and thanks for sharing.
adores (40916) 2014-08-04 15:58
If I lived closer, I would surely go to see this. Looks like a great event. I like the pov, you got some very nice details and the red colour is really eye catching.
jcpix (13814) 2014-08-07 19:57
I've yet to visit the Chihuly Deseret Botanical Garden exhibits here in Phoenix, but I understand it's superb. A great, and original idea to include this aspect into your composition, it gives the famed Space Needle an entirely fresh appeal, especially in this perspective. The strong red colors jump off the screen in contrast with the blue sky...almost like looking through a kaleidoscope with this arrangement. :) Smartly conceived. enjoy the new day. All the best.
berek (43565) 2014-08-10 23:44
A work of geometric very successful. excellent perspective. I liked a lot the blue sky. Well framed picture.
Have a nice week
alvaraalto (6177) 2014-08-26 10:59
I admire the way you observe the world with your camera. Showing a lot of people what the missed.
This picture shows us the beauty of the unexpected. It is often worth to look in all directions and not only forwards.
ourania (36366) 2014-08-29 11:27
this is a marvelous composition, the landmark of Seattle and the artworks interact superbly in your frame, the colours are fantastic and accentuate the impact and rhythm of the patterns. A fine graphical image that stays surprising and exciting no matter how long it's being viewed. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
mayjayne (4505) 2014-09-07 2:34
At first sight, it seemed like a piece of modern art to me. But when reviewed closely, plus the accompanying note, it turns out that the photographer's keen eye has composed this so cleverly. I love it - the vivid colours make the composition even more alive !
tatadalou (7219) 2014-10-15 12:00
Nice graphical shot, with a beautiful low POV that makes us feel as if we were part of the picture. Great vivid colours.
