Ying-Yang (rough draft 2)

This is a shot that I'm working on that takes the right conditions to pull off. First off you need a clear night (not always easy in Seattle) with a full moon, second it has to be a calm night so that the surface of Lake Union can gather up these beautiful reflections, and three, well I haven't quite figured out three yet but it will require a ladder and mounting my ball head to it to get a little extra height on the shot. Ideally I would like to get the reflections all the way across the shot and they are cut off by the hill in this shot... Lastly the exposure and processing need a little bit of work as well, but here is my progress so far, I call it ying-yang because this represents the green nature of the emerald city as well as the life and electricity of the city itself in perfect balance with one another. Hope to get it right later but for now this will have to do
