Seattle looks like a really nice town. Clean, modern, no air pollution & good weather most of the time. Came very close to getting the boat from Victoria in BC, Canada, to Port Angeles, & then a bus to Seattle, but decided against. Love the high pov & eye-catching circular structure in the fg. Tfs!
stevesaba (8135) 2011-10-11 1:02
Wow! A very impressive and magnetic city-scape you have created here! I love the framing and the interesting crop too. Perfect clarity and a very appealing sky with very appropriate colors. This is a first class photo, and what a gorgeous scene! Warm regards,

Hi Danos,great choice of point of view and wonderfull result,a very rich composition and a magic perspective,i like the great light balance too and the beautiful sky in background.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano.
nobuikehonda (3848) 2011-10-11 3:25
An incredibly dynamic foreground dominates the image. And having your POV high enough provides us a very nice view of the terraces on the round architecture. From this very pleasant place, we have a view far into the distance dominated by the series of towers. I love the way you have manage to capture the livery and lovely atmosphere of this place. I would very much like to be a part of this friendly place. In the evening, this restaurant would probably be a very joyful place to be. I can feel that you enjoyed your visit here. This is in fact a part of the states that I don’t really know. Thank you Danos for introducing us to such wonderful part of the city. Thank you again.
With my very best and friendly regards,
Have a great week ahead, Danos

This unusual architecture is skillfully described, with a skillfully chosen point of view and a well-balanced and deep composition. The urban and harbour landscape is remarkable. The light, the colors, the neatness are excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day

La realtà personale .
pierrefonds (56472) 2011-10-11 8:04
The restaurant is sending my eyes toward the buildings in the background which is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the restaurant, of the marina and of the buildings. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.
Fis2 (84598) 2011-10-11 8:09
Good POV and composition.
I like colors and sharpness.

Γεια σου Δάνο,
Ωραιότατη φωτογραφία με πολύ όμορφη ατμόσφαιρα και θαυμάσια θέα από το σημείο λήψης, η καφετέρια με το ενδιαφέρουσα αρχιτεκτονική στην προβλήτα της μαρίνας σε πρώτο πλάνο δημιουργεί ένα πολύ καλό βάθος πεδίου, εξαιρετικός φωτισμός και χρώματα από μια πολύ καλή επεξεργασία.
Καλό απόγευμα, Βασίλης.
mauro61 (52623) 2011-10-11 9:18
bella la vista dall'alto che partendo dal locale circolare in FG arriva ai grattacieli di fondo e al porto.
Buona la resa dei colori,
kato (11630) 2011-10-11 9:40
You're capturing well this scape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive and interesting to see the spectacle with marina, pier, high buildings and restaurant. Especially, it's impressive in the design and shape of this restaurant for me. You catch well this scape perpendicular-like, we can find one force of this area. And, the shadow give an additional good effect for the whole, too.
patdeph (35748) 2011-10-11 9:58
spectacular view,with an exeptional clarity,great sharpness,and wonderful light and colors.Excellent!
marina7 (8053) 2011-10-11 10:06
Excellent view of the marina on a very sunny day. I like the strong contrast and saturated colors. Lovely picture.

εμτυπωσιακή η θές από την πεζογέφυρα αυτή της περιοχής του Belltown,με την θέα να επεκτείνεται μέχρι το τέλος της φωτογραφίας.Τα χρώματα και το φως είανι εξαιρετικά όπως και η καθαρότητα της φωτογραφίας.

macjake (55562) 2011-10-11 11:18
this is the exact spot where i want to shoot seattle.
I've seen blue hour photos taken from here, and its a beautiful spot.
in this one, the lighting is excellent, the pov fantastic, i wouldn't change anything.
Budapestman (82620) 2011-10-11 11:48
great view, the composition is very spectacular, I like the architectural details and the effective POV, splendid shot of this place, Tfs! Have a nice evening! Kellemes estét kívánok!
francio64 (38276) 2011-10-11 13:16
bella veduta di Belltown, con un ottimo DOF e un ottimo sharp su tutti i piani.
Bello l'edificio in FG che riempie piacevolmente la scena ripresa dall'alto.
Ottimo il formato quadrato che include parecchi particolari, come il porticciolo turistico che arricchisce la compoisizione.
Well done and TFS!
frunchy (1517) 2011-10-11 15:29
again you made a wonderful wide angle image! There is so much depth and the structure in the foreground is well emphasized. Splendid light and colours, too. Well done, best regards, F.

So this is Seattle!
Magnifient water front indeed that appears very touristic, being that busy and so pleasantly managed.
Great clarity expressed with respect for highlights, as usual!
edge (6070) 2011-10-11 20:52
Hello Danos, This is lovely picture of the Seattle harbor. Superior cloud formations and great skyline from your POV. I like the use of the restaurant as the anchor for this shot as it leads ones eyes directly to the skyline. I lived for 20 years in Portland,Oregon which is about a four hour drive to Seattle. I always liked the latter city, but too often it would be raining there when we visited. Lucky you, with such a beautiful day for photography. Congrats on a great shot. Regards, Roger

Good dominating vantage point and nice shooting angle.

good shot from fine POV. Nice view of modern architecture near by sea. Amazing restaurant on FG. An interesting place. Photo I like.
Have a nice day.
pablominto (53744) 2011-10-11 23:31
The elevated point of view works well to show the restaurant and harbour surroundings!
A well composed presentation, good balance and a fine sense of depth...
The fine light renders great colours this lovely day!
marcan44 (6223) 2011-10-12 9:32
poco da aggiungere a quello di buono che è stato già detto di questo scatto.
Una fotografia da mostrare a chi vuole imparare a fotografare: in essa c'è tutto, nitidezza, prospettiva,colpo d'occhio, composizione.
I miei più sinceri complimenti
fabianoleite (9373) 2011-10-12 11:54
Beautiful pier, fantastic view, from an incredible perspective. I liked this circular place, especially. The composition could not be better. Congratulations!
josepmarin (57711) 2011-10-13 0:36
Your wide angle lens offers us a fantastic field of vision, with many graphical wealth from foreground up to background, that allows to see with a good sharpness all the urban elements and the magnificent architecture of this marina.
I like the deep perspective and the slight diagonal of the promenade, and the great quality of the light and of the warm colors in the picture.
It is a splendid photo.
Longroute (19394) 2011-10-13 1:14
Hey, you said you had not found places you liked here... what about this?
I like a lot this waterfront and Anthony's restaurant is a good subject and a formidable eye-catcher. The road at left gives a long perspective and the sight of the marina to the right is a very interesting one. Furthermore the light is v very good and gave you a brilliant image with vivid strong colours. A very pleasant photo photo with a strong visual impact.
Have a nice day,
s_lush (16134) 2011-10-13 8:35
You have found a very good point of view to show the Seattle Waterfront with great perspective and a lot of interesting details. The composition, colors, light, architecture, marina, sky and photographic quality are excellent in this capture. Perfectly good job!
rodgerg (55767) 2011-10-13 10:18
Excellent cityscape with an original and very graphic edifice in the FG. Great propsect open along the sea and the alignement of geometric buildings. An image rich in various elements with the details well collected.
have a nice evening,
boa (5995) 2011-10-13 13:52
very cool view from here ! The overview and the perspective are both excellent. I like the light, colors and the skyline in the background. Great shot !
Didi (56307) 2011-10-13 14:37
Interesting dominant POV on the restaurant.
I don't now if the rest menu is expensive.
Good lights ambiance.
abmdsudi (42664) 2011-10-13 23:14
This is another exciting image, fantastic high pov of this compact waterfront taken from good orientation. Its lighting hushness is well managed, full of contents efficiently framed to greatest effect. It looks just attractively drags the eye in to explore further using contrasting colors and look great against blue sky. Superb control of exposure with very fine clarity rendering much defination to the scene. But what so delightful to me is the brown pavement, a strong focal to drag the eyes in and stunningly contrast against the surroundings. Great photo work, Congrats
gildasjan (41552) 2011-10-14 1:14
Un très bon POV qui met bien en valeur les volumes de ce premier plan bien placé dans la composition.

A spectacular and magnificent prospect which we offer is this beautiful composition, an image with a large depth of field, the POV with the ideal image of coffee in the foreground and the background of the harbor and the beautiful succession of buildings in the long avenue.
Wonderful colors and sharpness to enjoy the image.

Very creative, very interesting.

Kalispera dear Danos
I always pictured Seattle to be cold and uninviting. You have changed my opinion with this lovely photo. Excellent POV, great colours and sharpness. The water is wonderful, you have brought a little bit of the Mediterranean to America. Great shot with wondeful graphism too.
sacimar (25975) 2011-12-03 10:12

Hi Danos !!
what is oustanding with this photos is the POV .... you are showing to the TE members so much of Seattle in one photo..... the water frontage is magnificent and so is the seafood.
Have a nice week end.
Cheers from Australia.
jcpix (13564) 2013-06-01 19:01
Fantastic perspective, you've composed a real beauty here! I love the big, bold foreground with the skyline stretched along the harbor as it works its way into the distance...all of which is in sharp detail, the depth of field is very strong. The colors throughout are vivid and bright, you definitely had the sun working to your advantage with this one. :) You've done Seattle proud with this shot, great job! Hope you're having a nice weekend.
Best wishes from Phoenix,
fabbs99 (16163) 2013-06-12 22:48
