it's a cool shot. i like the colors you've got going. the buildings really pop against the dark blue. however...

there are very visible photoshop errors in the upper left of the image.

Lovely shot - perfect clarity and it's busy just like a city shot should be. I also like the fact that the sky is a little brighter than black - often when night city shots are underexposed, you can't see anything other than the lights in the windows which I don't like.

You captured this perfectly, who am I to tell you what to improve? Great shot and it's on my desktop. :)

Great view and perfect lighting conditions you got there, I really envy you!

However, there's some very bad dirtiness going on in the top left half which, unfortunately, totally ruins this photo for me. Too bad we weren't able to spot this in the Loupe before voting for it.

Absolutely excellent shot, wasn't it for some annoyances (see after).

There are noticeable artifacts in the sky. I wonder what happened, it seems a quick cloning out. Please consider using an untouched version, that's annoying now that many have pointed it out.

There is also something strange, like a motion blur (?) in the lower-right quadrant, mildly disturbing.

good lord?!!! whats your address???... :) j/k what an amazing shot and an amazing view to wake up to and go to bed to.

i see the dirtyness Slochy comments on.. however for me, it is a small issue and would still have voted for it on the Loupe... guess i am a bigger fan of the artistic nature of the moment you captured.

What a fantastic picture. I'm green with envy that you've got such an awesome view right outside your window! But then I am a great fan of Seattle, having visited from England many times.

I would never go so far as to say the artefacts in the top left of the picture 'ruined' it - that's far too strong, but perhaps that area could have had a very gentle gaussian blur applied to smooth it out a little. The rest of the image is great. It's certainly taking up residence on my desktop for a while.

Great shot the city just jumps at you. Now I really miss living in Seattle.

There is just a tad of blurriness on the bottom right corner.

Ahh... This is just flawless! It's so nice to see some high quality images flowing through here once again. This image is very significant and symbolic for me. We used to live in Seattle and I used to work downtown so this is hitting very close to home for me. I miss Seattle so much and it's so nice to see a wallpaper of my favorite city. By the way this is the quality most of us grew accustomed to and when we see anything less it's just not the same...

Knowing this location there is not much that could have been changed from the standpoint of composition exposure, white balance and colors are spot on. My favorite skyscraper is right in the center I couldn't ask for more. Thanks for sharing this beauty and I am sure it will be on my desktop for a while. Cheers.

It was composed really well. Unlike others, I don't seek out small flaws. I appreciate it for what it is.

Can't think of a thing. Now can you take one like this of SF?

I always search for the best clarity in a desktop wallpaper, and I usually change it up once a week... I think this will be there for a while. Teach others your skill because it is great.

perfect, I look at the greatness and bypass the "flaws".
