Portland Skyline

The day after Thanksgiving (late November), eldest son, Mark, and I went down to the eastside of the Willamette River Esplanade to do some photographing. This is looking back at the downtown area. Today begins a series of photographs from that shoot.

NIKON D700 1/400 second F/11.0 ISO 200 30 mm (35mm equiv.)

Barbara from Florida, United States

Excellent cityscape composition. I'm quite impressed at the 3D effect it has. I look forward to this series.
Well done, Jack.
