Gorgeous perspective shot, Pat!
The light and shadows are lovely, the reflections of the city buildings are well captured, and the overall composition is so pleasing to the eye. Superior work and image!

Beautiful comp and early evening lighting. Love the buildings of Old Sac reflecting on the car. I grew up in Sacramento and Old Sac has many opportunities for great photos.

Wonderful variety in your gallery as always, Pat -- so much fun to browse! I always admire your creativity and skill in the digital darkroom -- you find just the right effects for the subject (as in Grandma's Love Chair). You know I'm a fan of natural design elements so it should come as no surprise that I really like your look shot and there are so many others I could mention. This is the one I've settled on as my pick from among your June entries. The POV is powerful and I love the tones and light -- that wooden platform is to die for :) Good luck with it.
