We had a couple of remarkably clear morning this past week, so I got up early and went to one of my favorite photo spots to catch the sunrise. When I first got there it was still pitch black and I couldn't make out anything in the distance, but as the morning wore on I could finally make out Mount Rainier and the rest of the Cascades to the East.
This shot was taken about 30-40 minutes after I first arrived. I like how the mountain is silhoutted against the morning colors. On top of the Space Needle you can see the Christmas tree they put up each year.
I really did not changes in photoshop. Just cleared the image up a little and cropped. I did not adjust the colors, it really was this beautiful.

Buena imagen, lindos colores y luces bien marcados, ese atardecer en la ciudad le da una color rojo al horizonte marcando muy bien su fotografia haciendo una gran composicion.

Great cityscape shot! The lighting in the sky is just right, doesn't overwhelm the lights of the buildings and still gives a good sihoette of the mountain. When I looked at this I thought it might work even better with a tighter crop of the scene, just left of the Space Needle and a little right of the mountain. Great shot!

Wonderful and spectacular morning rise shot. The atmosphere are well felt with the morning breeze and the composition are well executed.
Except that you needed to adjust the aperture value to f/11 or more or less and play with the speed value to imrpove the sharpness of the image.
Cheers and well done, Brian.

Stunning city skyline. I especially like how the Space Needle and the other colourful building stand out. Contrasts brilliantly with the mountain in the background. Well seen.
