liberty at alki

Photo Friday 4/28/2006: Famous


Seattle has its own smaller version of the Statue of Liberty at Alki Beach. I felt like such a tourist as I took pictures of it. :P

    I think it's wonderful to be tourist in your own town sometimes. Great shot too.

    Yeah, I'm still relatively new to the Seattle area (only been up a couple of years), so I'm still discovering lots of neat places to visit.

    Hmm, haven't seen this. Cool. Nice shot, too -- though I might suggest a little cropping off the left -- you'd lose some nice stuff with the clouds, so maybe not, but it would feel more balanced to me that way.

    I like how the statue and the tree are at almost the same height in the frame. :-) And the silhoutte effect with those clouds is just... amazing.

    (I'm going to have to try this cross-processing thing one of these days. :-) Where do you go to get it done? I'm sure I could find a place (I presume Ivey would have no problem with it, for example), just curious who you use.)

    Thanks for the comments David! I'm really happy that I got the clouds and silhouette. I wasn't quite sure what it would look like when I took the shot. I'm also glad the tree was there for scale reference. :)

    I had considered cropping it down, but I decided to just post the untouched image for now. I might upload a cropped version later tonight for comparison.

    I have my xpro done at Rainbow Photo in Bellevue, but I'm considering trying another place. My xpro images have been really hit and miss lately, and I have a feeling that the lab isn't doing the xpro quite right (at least for what I'm looking for). I know Ivey does xpro without any problems. Jon Madison has his xpro done there, and he gets some great results.

    Love your color tone play!

    Beautiful contrast!

    Very delayed, but hey, thanks for the response. I suspect I'll try Ivey when I get around to this.

    Oh, and I've seen this statue, now. :-)
