[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Nearly a year ago, we travelled to Canada's west coast (specifically Victoria) and then eventually on to Seattle for my niece's wedding. This was the view from the ferry as we approached downtown Seattle.

Sometimes an otherwise not-so-good photo can be salvaged with the help of some processing. On this day, the sky was overcast and grey. So I emphasized that, but left a little color in the clothing of the people standing outside.

happy weekend everyone!

Hello Trudy,a good use of the window to frame the view of Seattle as the ferry approaches.
The small amount of colour emphasises the greyness of the day.
The three people all facing different directions complete the picture.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Impressive way you have washed out most of the colours, I do like the resulting effect so much.

Hi Trudy,
A great frame for this panorama.
Beautiful waterfront of the city in the BG.
Well seen and nicely presented.
