Photographer's Note

Magic hour, when the first streetlights come on. This is downtown Seattle seen from Gasworks Park, on the North shore of Lake Union in Seattle. This site, where the gasworks for Seattle used to be, is so polluted that the ground has been removed and replaced a couple of times, and you cannot get in the water at this waterfront park. But it is a favorite place for many people and has gorgeous views of downtown Seattle and a hill that is perfect to fly kites. The actual tech data got lost due to a design flaw in the Kodak EasyShare software used to transfer the picture, so the data are as I remember it; I think I had set the ISO to 400. Processing: Adjusted curves to counter the camera's attempt to brighten the foreground, resized, no sharpening. Filtered through NeatImage. Did not attempt to correct the vignetting.
