downtown Sacramento California cityscape by 


Taken with my Nikon D80 DSLR camera from the top floor of a highrise hotel. My sincerest thanks to Mr. S, nameless here because I REALLY needed his understanding and he gave it wholeheartedly! This shot from today January 19th, 2011 is “as is”: directly as it was in the camera sans a tighter cropping using PhotoShop Elements 7.

Nikkor 18-105mm lens
Exposure: 1/50
f/stop: f/5.6
ISO: 100 (baseline)
Exposure bias: +1 (due to automatic bracketing)
Metering mode: pattern


This photograph was featured in Postcard Style which made my day! Thank you moderators and members. :-)

I’m a “scatter-focus” artist. ANYTHING may be here or roundabout my galleries. Expect nothing anywhere and you’ll always be OK. ;-)

    I love the soft tones and lighting on this shot. Downtown Sacramento really does have some awesome light in the morning and evening. I keep saying I am going to go down and capture it….lol….someday….Glad to see your folio, and this awesome shot….will stop back to look again soon.

    And then I found it in my group. So……
    Congratulations on being featured in Post Card Style

  • Thank you and THANK YOU very much. :-D I look at my shot compared to the others featured and cringe thinking ’I’m not in the league as these artists’. Having something of mine next to theirs is a moment to be cherished.

    Glad you like my rather ‘broad based’ collection of my newer passion. (Music started at 7 years of age; photography only the last 11 years, and those first 8 years were…well, a lot worse. LOL!)

    *WTG, Lenny! Bet it would also be outstanding with a little HDR…or other effects. The POV would make a good mini-series!
