The Seattle Tourist Shot by TheVenomousSwan The Seattle Tourist Shot by TheVenomousSwan
I decided to follow the sage advice of :iconalbus-panthera: and go through old photos while I'm in my rut.

I found this one, which I didn't submit earlier because I thought it was super touristy....

Anyways...

Hope you enjoy it. I'm off to find a muse.

Seattle, WA, HDRI.

Way to avoid cliche.
We don't get clouds like that too often here.

LOL! Don't worry! It's not touristy! I live in the are around the space needle, but I take pictures of it every time I visit seattle... I'm talking like at LEAST 50 pictures per day I go to Seattle! That's a lot of pictures!!!

I've been looking through photos of the Space Needle for about 45 minutes,
and your photo totally stands out the most.

It gives such an eerie feeling to the place... Its just awesome.
Adding it to my favorites :]

:aww: ...my knowledge was appreciated!

Very nice picture, yes it is touristy and for the most part I hate tourists (being that I'm in a tourist town) but yet it's always fun to occasionally be a tourist as well. As for the picture: the angle is nice, the HDR as always is pretty and the black & white came out quite well!

Owka...now that you put it 'that' way, I think I'll be more selective as to whom I give brain-meat too. It could be a bit hard to function properly if I lost too much gray matter. :P

I'll explain that one to my differential equations teacher: "Jeff, I'm sorry but I can't take the test...I've had a venomous swan eating my brain meat." Yup, that one is sure to go over well... :slow:

Great shot as always. Like someone said, I feel like I am in a bad dream but am still mesmerised by it.

I know you're in a rut atm but I have a little suggestion. Do what Charlie Kaufmann did when writing Adaptation and got writers block. He ended up writing about a writer that got writers block. Just a thought, it worked for him and he got an oscar nomination to boot.

Do a series of shots to outline your creative slump. That may help get the wagon rolling again. Just a thought. x

I'm glad I can be of assistance and hopefully send you on your way to creative photography again. Not that I can see any cracks in your visions so far.

Damn, your HDR work is too good. :)

Hush, you! Just because you guys in Toronto (insert weird accent here for "Touranteh") have a big one doesn't mean ours is any less masculine!

It's not the size that matters. :P

:iconblackbaa:
blackbaa Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2008
right, it's all about how you use it? don't lie... size matters.

sadly, our tower is no longer the tallest in the world... but they are putting glass bottoms in the elevators - hurrah!

not touristy! touristy is a group of over-weight middle-aged ppl with flowery shirts, putting their arms round each other, cheesey smiles and perhaps pointing at something very uninteresting...

... I stereotype far too much :(
