This image was taken on the Observation Deck of the Port of Seattle's Convention Center with a Canon A40. When cropped properly, this is hands down one of my favorite images of the city (see crop suggestion below, linked image greatly reduced). I call it the City of the Future because it gives this feeling like the images from the 50's/60's of what They said the City of for the New Millennium will be like. I also feel the light is absolutely wonderful for this shot. The orange hues, mixed with the lack of real detail on the city, gives it the illusion of a drawing rather then a photograph. In the background you can see the Viaduct, Pike Place Market, the Seattle Aquarium, and other sites of the city.
