Wow, this shot is just amazing. I also think the heavy blue adds a moodiness to the shot that it would have totally lost if you'd toned it down too much, so I'm glad you didn't :)

I'm going to be sketching this skyline for an apocalyptic kind of picture. I might consider uploading it onto dA, but only if you are okay with that (with credit to the source obviously). Just let me know.

Wow! This is an amazing shot! I love how you worked the HDR to bring out the contrast of our normally dull, gray Seattle clouds. :thumbsup::nod:

I think I was just lucky that day :-)

The clouds on the bracketed photos are more like thin streaks of clouds letting a lot of the blue sky through.

But I agree about the normally dull gray Seattle sky - hopefully this summer will bring some good weather :)

Fantastic! My new desktop image, thanks! Great choice of location and I love the overall blue tone, gives a spooky feel but not too much. Interesting diversity in the buildings too, old, new, and BRAND new... whole shot keeps my eyes moving around looking at all the details, really cool.
