<b>City on a Hill - B&W</b>

Uploaded: December 02, 2008


ISO 100, Pentax SMC Takumar 300/4 (M42), 1/500 @ f/8, 2x2 image multi-row panorama, re-stitched using Hugin after source image(s) cleanup to 4337 x 2175, post-processed using Adobe PS Elements and Topaz Adjust for contrast enhancements

We don't often think of Seattle as a city surrounded by mountains... but it is.
The backdrop is the Olympic range, with Mt Olympic (at the left edge) and Mt Constitution visible.
Redone in black and white to bring out the contrast and emphasize the city over the foreground/background.

Exif: Model: SIGMA SD10
