excellent geometry, composition seems very well thought through.
I like also the well saturated colors which make it so eye catching.
Very interesting place so little known to foreign tourists, I guess,
thanks for this interesting walk.
Have a great weekend,

pierrefonds (71691) 2011-11-04 18:14
The reflections on the windows are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the highrise buildings. The quality of the light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
edge (7409) 2011-11-04 18:50
Hello Danos, Great vista of this metropolitan center. You had a great POV from the skybridge and you used it well in presenting this photo. One can almost feel the fervor and busy activity that is occurring as one views the shot. I like the composition and the mass of steel projected from this picture. Nicely done. Regards, Roger

Enjoy a fine weekend.
ikeharel (79161) 2011-11-05 1:17
Modern townscape, well collected from a lookout point with fine DOF through the boulevard, Danos.
The shades from sides darkened the facade on buildings, but that's small detail doe's not effect the sight.
mauro61 (52887) 2011-11-05 1:47
costruzioni moderne con i loro riflessi e la loro imponenza su questo angolo di città.
Buono il controllo della luce.
kato (11630) 2011-11-05 4:05
You're capturing well this cityscape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see skyscraper with many style. These are modern architecture that American like. And, the reflection projected to the glass of building is impressive as well as clean blue sky.
peppe59 (14555) 2011-11-05 4:17
beautiful intense color of the sky, great light and sharpness, spectacular buildings in Washington.
paololg (31448) 2011-11-05 8:56
Ciao dear Danos,
interesting example of modern architecture in which the geometric shapes of the buildings contrast nicely between them. Very beautiful the effect of reflections on the Shiny skyscrapers, giving the impression to be transparent. Excellent composition, congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice Sunday!
fabianoleite (11971) 2011-11-05 9:01
Well shown modern cityscape, with very modern buildings and the traffic below. It looks good, congratulations!

Γεια σου Δάνο,
Εξαιρετική φωτογραφία με θέα τα μοντέρνα κτίρια και τον καταγάλανο ουρανό, ωραία χρώματα και πολύ καλή διαχείριση του φωτός, μου αρέσουν και οι αντανακλάσεις πάνω στο γυάλινο κτίριο.
Να περάσεις ένα όμορφο Σαββατοκύριακο, Βασίλης.
patdeph (35748) 2011-11-05 13:49
even if I don't like picture of cities very much,I think that the colors are very beautiful,and that the buildings are very well standing out the blue sky.

μια ενδιαφέρουσα σύγχρονη αρχιτεκτονική των κτιρίων εδώ και καλή παρουσίαση. Μου αρέσει η επιλογή σε χρωματικούς τόνους και το πλαισιο με την προοπτική του δρόμου! Σύγχρονη η πόλη και η θέα από ένα σημείο εντυπωσιακό
εύχομαι καλή Κυριακή.

csabagaba (6636) 2011-11-06 8:21
Excellent photo of a modern city part. The geometric lines are tight focus on the perspective. The light and shadow further harden the angular forms. Good focus on the building caught two more, it sets the focus to.
Good color and contrast.
DjoleEric (0) 2011-11-06 10:17
Beautiful photographs shows a nice quality.

TFS, best regards, F.
papagolf21 (110342) 2011-11-06 11:33
Bonsoir, cher ami Danos,
Je ne sais pas si je pourrais me faire à ce gigantisme !
Force est de constater que les immeubles possèdent une certaine beauté. De plus, la place venant à manquer, il est n'est plus vraiment possible de construire à l'horizontale !
Très bonne prise de vue.
bayno (18344) 2011-11-06 11:56
Ciao Danos, the sky well polarized, is the beautiful setting of the modern buildings, I like reflexes and your nice POV, very good even games of light, excellent sharpness, well done my friends, Valter
marcan44 (6315) 2011-11-06 14:05
anche il cemento ha la sua bellezza ed eleganza.
Grande nitidezza e bei riflessi sulle vetrate dell'edificio in secondo piano.
Eccellente qualità dell'immagine
nobuikehonda (3848) 2011-11-06 14:15
Hello dear Danos,
The presented image has a very special atmosphere. The presence of all the beautiful towers is intriguing. The cars on the road look like toys in front of all the towers. A very beautiful light creates a 3D effect. The superb lighting adds a magnificent effect to this photo. To me, the image has a timeless quality as if the time is standing still. I like the photo very much.
With my very best wishes,
Have a great week ahead, Danos
P.S: Thank you
jlbrthnn (76039) 2011-11-06 14:41
Le architetture futuriste sono poste armoniosamente nella foto. L'esposizione è molto buona. La pulizia e la profondità sono eccellenti. Applauso.
adramad (49962) 2011-11-06 16:21
A superb image with this variety of buildings, which are all a sample of modern architectural designs. Great lighting is good and I like the good contrast of the image, which gives a wealth of color. Good job, I like it.
Happy beginning of the week.
amaryllis (37039) 2011-11-07 1:55
un cadrage remarquable de cet ensemble d'architecture moderne avec les reflets des tours dans les autres, une belle luminosité, une belle photo de la vie quotidienne
corjan3 (2109) 2011-11-07 8:28
Very modern and very beautiful, mainly because of your excellent exposure control. I think. A very pleasant view of Bellvue. Best wishes.
sacimar (28969) 2011-11-07 8:44
good view of this part of Washington, I like the buildings, the blue sky helps to create a beautiful composition, well seen,
clic (18552) 2011-11-07 16:23
Geia sou Danos and thanks for your visit.
Despite an exposure for highlights on varied architecture of those buildings, your camera sensor recorded subtle details in darker areas as well, so the visual information is complete and conveys a "clair-obscur" appealing cityscape.
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2011-11-08 9:22
a beautiful presentation. A nice composition with those skyscrapers and the superb sky at top. Perfect light and superb colours. Great shot. Tfs.
siolaw (38294) 2011-11-08 22:01

Nice cityscape under pleasant weather, which gave a bright picture with natural looking colours. The small cars give scale to the scene, those buildings look quite big!
Cricri (126732) 2011-11-09 11:15
Excellent POV, une lumière et des reflets magnifiques, des bâtiments de formes et d'architecture différentes, superbe bleu azur du ciel
agjika (3177) 2011-11-09 14:30
I like the great exposure and sharpness in this photo but I love the composition with that massive building "in the right" place it really balances the photo nicely.
Thanks for sharing
josepmarin (58359) 2011-11-11 3:14
a perfect POV to find this good framing, which combines the impressive modern architecture of the buildings, with the intense blue of the sky, giving a great graphical result because of the nice geometry of the skyscraper and to the interesting game of light and of shades in foreground.
It is a very attractive and very powerful composition.
Beautiful work, my friend.
Bluejeans (64251) 2011-11-16 10:57
Ola Danos ,

Φανταστική θέα της σύγχρονης μητρόπολης για το ιστορικό των έντονο μπλε του ουρανού. Τα κτίρια αυτά αποτελούν μια καλή αρχιτεκτονικού έργου. Εξαιρετική σύνθεση επίπεδο ποιότητας.
s_lush (16602) 2011-11-26 9:36
This modern architecture looks extremely impressive and aesthetic in urban-landscape photo. Especially I like the reflection of skyscrapers in the glazing of another skyscrapers. Excellent composition and highly masterful capture!
maria-v1981 (10964) 2012-10-30 5:58
Δεν έχω δεί ποτέ ουρανοξύστη και πιστεύω ότι το θέαμα θα πρέπει να είναι υπέροχο? Έχεις διαλέξει ένα πολύ καλό σημείο να περιλάβεις κάθε λεπτομέρεια από το τοπίο. Το φως είναι εξαιρετικό το ίδιο και η σύνθεση.
