    So I hardly, if ever, post in this subforum, but I'm sure I'll start as I get more into this hobby.

    Quick intro...

    I'm Jeff, I've got a D80, with the 18-135 kit and a 50 1.8. Nothing special. I would still consider myself a n00b at photography, but I can already tell it's something I will be doing for the rest of my life. I enjoy it immensely, and it's really relaxing for me.

    So to the point of this thread....

    Basically, winter up here in Seattle sucks because the ratio of cloudy/rainy days to clear, sunny days is like 100:1. Last night actually turned out to be a decent night. There were no clouds in the sky, and the wind was nonexistant. I took a few of these shot of the city of Seattle at night, and I wanted to share. I like them, and I thought you might too.

    welcome.

    2nd pic shows promise... I'd crop it to a panorama... just below the reflections, and just above the buildings.

    Thanks. I would probably crop it if it was going to be printed or presented in some fashion.

    Wish I could have used my 50mm for that shot. It would have been sharper. :hs:

    Nice pics. You might as well edit the second one because you want your pictures to reflect your e-penis right? :hsugh:

    looks great. I live just north of seattle and have always wanted to take skyline shots like that but i never find myself downtown at night. i want to take that shot that you always see from Alki beach of the skyline.
