This is just stunning! We were in Seattle a couple of years ago, but it was so hazy, you couldn't even see Ranier. This is a perfect shot! Definitely would sell to tourists!!!

Post card perfect! You captured the two icons of the area in perfect composition and excellent clarity. Excellent choice for the challenge.

Excellent picture and you know why. Very smart background, showing the best of both worlds...

This is really good! Great depth of field! Mount Ranier is just as crystal clear as the skyline!

Very nice vantage point and a beautiful photo. My personal preference would be to lower the horizon a bit to put the Space Needle right on the top left third line. The only other thing I notice is that the mountain looks a bit odd, either from haze or overprocessing. Still, this is a really nice photo - one of the best in the challenge.

This is by far the best Seattle image in the challenge - and probably the best "any city" image. DOF to infinity. Great contrast between tower and mountain (and even the skyline composition is cool). Would do wonderful as the front cover of a travel guide for the area. It would attract me, that's for sure. As an overall travel image, it would have to be supplemented by people and activities. If I rated higher for other images, it was because they also included those items. Congratulations.

There were several pictures of Seattle in this challenge and yours was the best. I like that you got Mount Rainier in the picture with the space needle in a balaced way. Good color too.

A slightly clearer day would have made this perfect, but you can't have everything, right? Very nice!

Simply beautiful; the Needle and Rainier...

I'm sure that this picture is in many travel books, but I think that you did a fantastic job with it. The haze in the background hurts a little in making the Mount sharp, but that is beyond your control. Great picture.

Hey, I live near here and this was a great capture for the weather we had during this contest. Pretty standard Seattle tourist shot that is on many of the postcards so it certainly meets the subject. Good job.

sure winner, nice and clear with great color and depth.

Lovely shot! It DOES show how beautiful the Emerald City can be. (But I also love it in spring, fall and winter.)

Beautiful shot! You captured the beauty of Seattle in 1 shot!

The mountain in the background really sets this photo apart from the others. The composition, colors, and details are excellent.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow, great view of the city. The mountain (sorry, I suck at Geography) is a great touch. Focus appears to be locked on the trees in the foreground, making the buildings slightly soft on the focus.

Super composition with the tower, buildings, and mountain. 7

Title seems a little corny, but it is a beautiful shot. Would like to see more of the mountain to the right, but still a good view of the city.
