Seattle's Space Needle with a ferris wheel spinning in the amusement area. The lights were not working on the wheel but they got them fixed just as it got dark out.

Shot in jpeg with almost no post work...some cropping at the top, rotated slightly to get the Needle straight, sharpening for web and increased the saturation a little.

As always, lot of fun and learning shooting this challenge. This is my favorite image I've shot for a challenge so far, so I hope folks like it.

Just needs to be a little darker/more contrast and this pic would truly Pop.

A Space Needle view I have never seen before, and I live here. Great shot!

the colors are great. I'm not sure about the sparkle of light, maybe a reflection?

Very nice composition. The placement of the half wheel works great against the height of the needle. Maybe saturated a bit more to have the colors pop as they seem a bit muted. Good job overall.

Nice image, seem like the colors need a little boost, maybe a slight contrast adjustment

needs more contrast - blacks don't look like they are all the way black. Cool shot except that - 7
