    Personally I find the dark buildings on the right hand side in the
    foreground a little distracting, and the glares on the left hand side
    foreground drag the eye away from the best part of the photo.

    Very nice pictures though, ones I'd have been pleased to take.

    Thanks. I realized that Paint Shop Pro (v6) stripped out the JPG details,
    but this was taken with a D70 and a 70-200 lens. 100mm focal length, f/16
    for 6 seconds (I used aperture priority mode and underexposed by two stops).

    Thanks. Oh, by the way - we were talking about that lightweight Velbon
    tripod here a couple of weeks ago. That photo is a 6 second exposure with
    the Nikon 70-200 VR lens mounted to the Velbon MAXi 343E tripod. The lens is
    about 50.4 oz and the D70 body is about 21 oz plus battery. No problem at
    all with stability in a light wind.

    Nice work. I love the intense color on the sunset shots.
    What camera?

    Let us know when you do. I enjoyed the pictures. Almost like visiting
    Seattle again. Maybe in a year or two...

    It's something I have never owned, but that may change. I am getting so
    shakey these days I can't handhold the longer exposures.
