You captured Seattle for me. The rain, the market, the night life...all of that in one photo. Nice Work. #2229372

Great capture FranK! It's shots like these that makes all "behind the scenes work" pay off. Putting up with the weather, people, searching for that great spot etc… Since I live near Seattle I'm going to have to try some night shots now, which I've never done before.

Bravo! #2235939

Congrats! I was just there for a brief period of time. As sunny as it was, I wish it would have rained when I was there. Nice work buddy. #6231886
