King Street Station
King Street Station is a train station in Seattle, Washington. Located between South King and South Jackson streets and Second and Fourth Avenue South in the Pioneer Square neighborhood of Seattle, the station is just south of downtown. Built from 1904 to 1906, It served the Great Northern Railway and Northern Pacific Railway from its grand opening on May 10, 1906, until the creation of Amtrak in 1971. The station was designed by the St. Paul, Minnesota architectural firm of Charles A. Reed and Allen H. Stem, who were later associate designers for the New York Central Railroad's Grand Central Terminal in New York City. King Street Station was Seattle's primary train terminal until the construction of the adjacent Oregon & Washington Depot, later named Union Station, in 1911. King Street Station was added to the National Register of Historic Places and the Washington Heritage Register in 1973.
Safeco Field (originally rendered SAFECO Field and sometimes referred to as Safeco or The Safe) is a retractable roof baseball stadium located in Seattle, Washington. The stadium, owned and operated by the Washington-King County Stadium Authority, is the home stadium of the Seattle Mariners of Major League Baseball (MLB) and has a seating capacity of 47,878 for baseball. It is located in Seattle's SoDo neighbourhood near the western terminus of Interstate 90.
CenturyLink Field is a multi-purpose stadium in Seattle, Washington, United States. It serves as the home field for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League (NFL) and Seattle Sounders FC of Major League Soccer (MLS). It was originally called Seahawks Stadium but was renamed Qwest Field in June 23, 2004 when telecommunications carrier Qwest acquired the naming rights. It was then given its current name in June 2011 after the acquisition of Qwest by CenturyLink. The complex also includes the Event Center with the WaMu Theater, a parking garage, and a public plaza. The venue hosts concerts, trade shows, and consumer shows along with sporting events. Located within a mile (1.6 km) of Seattle's central business district, the venue is accessible by multiple freeways and forms of mass transit.

Lep pogled na staru arhitekturu i deo savremenog stadiona, lepa fotografija.
Dobar rad i postignuta panorama, lepe boje.

prospettiva molto dinamica ben movimentata dai diversi volumi architettonici.
Bellissimo il cielo che sovrasta la scena,
krzychu30 (15512) 2011-10-19 0:41
great wide-angle perspective chosen here.We can admire a lot of architectural details in excellent quality.The clouds in this case are really amazing and give nice effect to the whole composition.Good work!
Have a nice day
lousat (90780) 2011-10-19 1:04
Hi Danos,this tower bells seems the campanile of Venice..ehehe...what a beautiful composition from a great pov,i like this surrounding effect made by the sky around the tower bell,great light balance,sharpness and colors.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano.
josepmarin (58357) 2011-10-19 1:23
the clouds decorate the sky spectacularly, and your framing gives them a good space to emphasize its high aesthetic level.
But the architecture that we see in the photo has also a great graphical power, because of the mixture of styles of the different buildings. The tower has a Venetian very interesting style.
I like the deep perspective that your visual angle offers us in an elegant diagonal.
The weak light adds a dramatic touch at the scene.
gildasjan (43538) 2011-10-19 1:36
Une très belle perspective sans voitures et un très bon cadrage de ces architectures sous ce ciel très esthétique avec ses nuages en mouvement.
papagolf21 (101040) 2011-10-19 1:48
Bonjour, cher ami Danos,
Le ciel ajoute à la grandeur du spectacle que l'on découvre à travers cette réalisation.
Image bien construite et fort bien présentée.
ikeharel (70795) 2011-10-19 2:10
Marvelous the clouds above, Danos, worth a photo on itself...almost noon, low light prevails, and you managed to show a wonderful 2 archi. styles in this image.
dkmurphys (58104) 2011-10-19 3:25
Interesting capture from that weyrd and unique place. I like the atmosphere and the lack of traffic and people. Well catch, have a nice day.
delpeoples (57716) 2011-10-19 3:29
Kalimera dear Danos
Oooh what amazing clouds. and such a great juxtaposition of new and old architecture. I like also the diagonal lines on the road, which seem to send our eyes swirling all around the photo.
TFS and geia sou
bayno (18344) 2011-10-19 3:38
Ciao Danos, beautiful perspective and framing, modern and old live together, the sky is beautiful, great colors and sharpness, have a nice day, Valter
siamesa (28117) 2011-10-19 4:19
Bom dia Danos
The sky here is the masterpiece.
Beautiful view of the tower and the street in diagonal.
anokutan (15097) 2011-10-19 4:28
Interesting capture from that weyrd and unique place. I like the atmosphere and the lack of traffic and people.
Sonata11 (33795) 2011-10-19 4:39
Yes, 3 in 1 is a perfect title for this shot. Everything in one. Beautiful management of light and colors. Perfect sharpness, clarity of details, Perfect sky. All together wonderful picture. Awesome. I like it a lot.
All the best,
nobuikehonda (3848) 2011-10-19 5:01
Incredibly beautiful sky over the entire view, it helps to bring many different architectural styles into one organised image. Widespread image is well contrasted by the verticality of the tower, which dominates the rest of the image. Well-balanced view covers an area of the city, which is predominately American. I have never been to this part of the U.S. But the photo provides us a view that is stunningly beautiful. From the east cost to the west coast, U.S is a very vast and large country. The use of a wide-angle lens is very Appropriate in representing the size of the country.
With my very friendly and sincere wishes,
Have a very good day, Danos
kato (11630) 2011-10-19 5:47
You're capturing well these three buildings by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive and interesting to see railway station with classical/elegant style and two modern sports stadium.
Here seems calm and settled place. And, it's impressive in wide car road and the sky with clouds, too.
peppe59 (14555) 2011-10-19 8:08
light with a very special single sky, excellent sharpness and perfect quality, very interesting.
congratulations and good week
marcan44 (6307) 2011-10-19 8:11
hai voluto portarci sugli edifici attraverso questo cielo superbo che fa da sfondo alle tre costruzioni.
Perfetta la costruzione dell'immagine con la torre decentrata sulla destra.
Colori naturali, nitidezza eccellente.
Un caro saluto
nilotpal_patra (1688) 2011-10-19 8:14
Namaskar Danos Kounenis,
It is realy, realy a Wonderful Picture of Architecture. Nice Frame. Nice colour, contrast and sharpness. Excellent shot. Nice POV. TFS.
baddori (20121) 2011-10-19 9:18
Uno stato meraviglioso al confine col Canada ...
Vedo che la classica soprelevata "americana" diventa una diagonale a salite e mette in evidenza le 3 parti della foto.
Sicuramente molto sport a livello mondiale e vecchio e ultra moderno che convivono
vasilpro (41315) 2011-10-19 10:34
Γεια σου Δάνο,
Ωραιότατη η "τριπλή" αυτή σύνθεσή σου με ενδιαφέροντα στοιχεία από την Ουάσινγκτον, υπέροχος ουρανός, όμορφα χρώματα, πολύ καλή και η επιλεγμένη γωνιά λήψης.
Σε χαιρετώ, Βασίλης.
Fis2 (96849) 2011-10-19 11:07
A very interesting objects.

Budapestman (82620) 2011-10-19 12:36
a spectacular architectural photo with attractive composition and special lights, the clouds adds a lot to the atmosphere, TFS! Have a nice evening! Kellemes estét kívánok!
abmdsudi (53703) 2011-10-19 20:52
This upload offers one of the best little fluffy white clouds formation over the three prominent structures below despite the weather condition, they create such a great contrast to the available colors and the whole scene. Well composed, a beautiful view alltogether but that sky is extra special with a remarkable effect that really finishes that shot off well. Great ! Congrats
edge (6771) 2011-10-19 21:30
Hello Danos, Excellent picture of some of the Seattle buildings. You were fortunate that it was not raining there. These are all three very important structures for Seattle and you have done a fine job of displaying them. The colors are true and the shot is expansive to contain all of the building. Great Job. I lived in Portland Oregon, which is a rival of Seattle in many things, and for the most part, Portland has not been able to keep up with Seattle in the Sports venue as you have shown here. Regards, Rogerf
s_lush (16134) 2011-10-19 22:50
These interesting architectural objects look highly impressive being captured by you against such a wonderfully clouded sky. Despite the lack of sunlight, the image is very colorful and attractive. Excellent job!
Graal (102752) 2011-10-19 23:18
an interesting place and informations. Amazing tower like Big Ben in London. Good composition. Photo well done.
Have a nice day.
siudzi (34141) 2011-10-20 1:56
Really like the cloudy sky on your image. Its texture and colors are very unique and make your shot very interesting. Well done. TFS.
Silvio1953 (142213) 2011-10-20 2:50
Ciao Danos, lovely composition with beautiful architectures on a fantastic sky, excellent clarity, splendid light and colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
rodgerg (55767) 2011-10-20 2:53
An interesting note for an interesting shot. An imlage well composed too with POV and framing well selected. The lamp, on the left, give balance to this composition. Good managment of a difficult light.
clic (16971) 2011-10-20 6:17
Thanks for your visit Danos
This 3 for 1 is impressive by the information amount you collected to explain the alignment
of modernity juxtaposed to old style which design is enhanced of the clock tower..
Compliments for the allover perfect verticals.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2011-10-20 6:56
Bravo for these three photos in one. The composition leaves a vast and skillful foreground. Good framing on the diagonal. Excellent neatness and depth. Bravo.
Have a nice day
La_Tulipe (2798) 2011-10-20 9:35
Trois constructions intéressantes sur ce fond de ciel bleu ouaté, voilà une excellente idée d'autant que cet arrière plan donne toute la place aux architectures de l'avant plan.
Bonne lumière et excellent cadrage.
Cricri (118917) 2011-10-20 10:23
Bon POV qui donne une vue intéressante sur ces différentes architecture, plus spéciale la tour horloge
le ciel ajoute un coté spectaculaire a la composition,
boa (7375) 2011-10-20 10:41
very eye catching and attractive sky, impossible to resist for a photo ! The clock tower have an excellent position in this composition, furthermore a sharp and clear shot and a good note, Tfs !
Have a nice evening.
paololg (31448) 2011-10-20 14:34
Ciao dear Danos,
an interesting image rich of architectural details and characterized by this beautiful sky. A photo rich of subjects (baseball stadium, football stadium and the old station) and details well defined by an excellent sharpness. As always, excellent work. Congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice Friday!
gunbud (34066) 2011-10-20 19:09
Great shot of the classic architectue that is seen in strong contrast to the modern stadium.
Lovely sky and light bring out rich textues and sharp details.
Giorgio (11279) 2011-10-21 2:53
- Another nice modern composition Danos, as a bonus the impressive building, nice cloudy sky as bonus, bravo!
DjoleEric (0) 2011-10-21 12:10

vrabieionut (2189) 2011-10-23 3:30
Impressive picture,I like how you framed this picture.I love architecture of the railway station.
A nice Sunday,
nikkitta (17066) 2011-10-24 15:48
Happy to continue visiting Seatle, here with the help of the note you present 3 quite interesting buildings
Sky is very nice and helps to add contrast
Like the diagonal way and POV chosen
Longroute (19396) 2011-10-25 7:21
Odd to find such a clock tower in America! It looks the bell tower on San Marco in Venice!
The two different architecture, the modern and the old one makes a fine contrast and the way you have composed the image make a fine sense of depth and long perspective thank to the diagonal road. I like the beautiful sky which contrasts with the warm tonalities of the station.
A pleasant and well composed image,
Bluejeans (64251) 2011-10-25 10:19
Ola Danos ,
Interessante esta tua foto nesta avenida vazia de carros , bonitos os vários edifícios de fundo , boas cores e luz , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
pierrefonds (65904) 2011-10-25 15:30
The point of view is sending my eyes toward the stadium which is giving depth to the composition. It is also showing the details and colors of the architecture of the buildings. There is a good contrast between the colors of the scene. Have a nice day.
jmdias (64026) 2011-11-04 6:28
beautiful architecture we can see here and I liked the way you caught the three buildings. the light was weak but you got a nice job despite this.
mkamionka (36258) 2011-11-09 7:25
the tower reminds me the custom house in Boston.
Very nice presentation in spite of difficult light conditions. Perfectly corrected perspective. Nice asymmetric composition,
kordinator (20517) 2011-11-22 0:34
I like a lovely sky over fantastic buildings.

sacimar (26205) 2011-11-22 9:16
interesting combination of buildings and styles, I like your idea and the result, the sky was also fantastic for the picture, nice job,
raszid62 (18515) 2011-11-24 6:46
Εξαιρετική σύνθεση, σύγχρονα κτίρια και λεπτός πύργος του ρολογιού στην πρωτεύουσα των ΗΠΑ σε φόντο του ουρανού εκπληκτική. Αυτά τα σύννεφα είναι όμορφα. Μεγάλη χρώματα και την ποιότητα των φωτογραφιών.
jusninasirun (17162) 2012-04-22 18:32
Thanks for sharing these fine architectures in one wonderful frame. The design of the field is beautiful and in good balance with the clock tower.
Thanks and have a nice day.
Angshu (56750) 2012-07-25 21:20
Nice picture of the red buildings with classical design coexisting with the old, against the dramatic sky , where the clouds seem to radiate from the clock tower
fabbs99 (17165) 2012-10-02 8:37
Amazing shot with great clouds and the high tower clock.The wide empty road and the buildings across the road give an excellent impression of the scene.The lighting is also amazing as well as perfect POV too.TFS.
