April 30th, 2012: Gimme Some Skin
Here is a shot of Seattle’s tallest building, the 76-story Columbia Center. Completed in 1985, this skyscraper is was the tallest building west of the Mississippi. I had originally processed a color HDR version of the image, but was not satisfied with the tone-mapped result. Curious to see what it looked like in monochrome, I opted instead to just use a single image to emphasize the shapes and forms of the towers set against the softness of the sky.
