Downtown Seattle – 12th Ave Bridge

12 Ave Bridge
Photo taken May 2010. Larger version here.

Another view of downtown Seattle – this time from the 12th Avenue bridge, one of the iconic spots for photographers.  This was my first foray with a wide-angle lens – a rented Canon 10-22mm.  I just got my Sigma 10-20mm which I plan on using extensively outdoors on climbs and for landscape photography.

I”m not sure which image I like more, the top one has better composition with the flow of the highway, but the one below captures the light from passing cars and adds some visual excitement.  Tell me what you think.

    I””m not much of a photographer (I still use the “auto” mode on my Canon Digital SLR), but I like the top one more, I think. As you say, the top one has more composition and the lights on the bottom one seem more random and less attractive.
