    This was taken from up on Somerset Hill, pretty close to Newport High School. If you live nearby, you should check it out sometime.

    It has to be one of the two things you mentioned. Hmm, either it was the conditions or people are just really envious over my watermark...

    Thanks. I don't get over there much, but the next time I do, I'll have to remember this. Great vantage point.

    Photos are subjective, and I've seen photos here where I "don't get it" either. It's what makes the world go 'round.

    I've seen so many photos of Seattle that I couldn't even attempt to count. I've taken a fair number of them myself. None, in my humble opinion, match #1 above.

    First, it's a unique vantage point. That means it's not the same old from-the-water shot. Also, what is lacking makes it different, and that's the famous Space Needle. (It is in the second shot, though.) Most folks want to make sure that gets in the shot at the cost of composition. (I've been guilty of that myself.) Most of those shots are for tourists or for relatives out of town.

    The colors are just fantastic and without the oh so typical overdone post processing job. (Everyone seems to be into over-saturation now-a-days.) -- It just looks natural and inviting.

    And composition is spot on.... etc...

    And that's why I like it.

    I don't often go to links, but yes, some very nice work on your site, dseidman. Even the "classic view" is excellent.

    Thanks for bringing attention to it, daithi33.

    I really appreciate the compliment!
    Thanks for explaining to him. I felt the reason anyone likes a photo is pretty self-evident, but apparently it's not.

    TwoRails and Sinister Kid:

    After checking out this view for the first time I was very surprised that I had never seen pictures from this vantage point before. If you'd like to know the exact location, I put it on a map for you guys.
