Seattle on a Foggy Day: Real Life - Special Effects

By
Real Estate Agent with RLAH Real Estate AB95346

On a foggy day, I was on the ferry from Bainbridge Island to Seattle, and I took a bunch of photos of the skyline as the boat approached the city.  Then I played around with it in Movavi Photo Editor 3.  

Here is the "Before" shot:

And here is the "After":

Sometimes, messing with photos in an editor is as much fun as taking them in the first place!  In this one, I played with the color, the shadows, the contrast, the exposure - pretty much anything there was to fool with i the program.  

And this is my entry into Dick Greenberg's Photo Contest in the "Real Life - Special Effects" category.

Hi....would you like to live there, I'm wondering...especially the allure of traveling by ferry and the "weather adventures" involved...

jane ann, my brother and his family live on Bainbridge Island, and the daily commute is on a ferry boat.  The scenery is just amazing, and in the morning you have the foggy skyline, with the sun on the buildings on the way home.

The fog in Seattle can roll in fast . . . . and is part of the charm of the city.

Good luck and success.

Lou, I was amazed at how beautiful the days were - and that the fog burned off by around nine in the morning!

I hear that fog and rain in Seattle are fairly typical weather forecasts.
