This shot was taken with an iPhone Friday afternoon from a height of 25 stories. Starting at the far right is Seattle's City Hall complex, then moving left is Columbia Center (the city's tallest structure), to it's left and behind it is the Seattle Municipal Tower, and front left is the red brick structure of the historic Rainier Club. Behind that is the domed old First United Methodist Church building, now an historic landmark known as the Daniels Recital Hall. The blank lot next door to the right of it will someday become another shiny highrise, the Fith & Columbia Tower.
It's mid December and the city trees lining the street are still ablaze with autumn colors.

I keep forgetting what this miniturizing effect is called, but I love it! It looks like an architect's model. Or an awesome toy. :)

Hi, Kim!

Interesting mix of new and old. What app did you use to get the Lensbaby effect?

Kim said...

Thanks Hilda, and so nice to see your smiling face!

Hi Bob, thats an on-line program called Tiltshift Maker. Very easy to use and very limited effects/controls (not the kind of quality you would like, but for fun, it is quick and easy).

This shot got Explored at #181 on Flicker today. Who'd a thunk it? :-)
