Photographer: Jim Bellomo

Photo taken: From the top of the pedestrian overpass at the Olympic Sculpture Park on Nov. 24, 2018

Photographer’s description: “This was taken from the top of the footbridge across the train tracks in the Seattle Art Museum Sculpture Park. I loved the way the train leads the eye down to Smith Tower, Seattle’s oldest skyscraper. Taken with a Nikon D810, 28-300 Nikkor zoom. Taken at 320th of second at f/9.”

Critique: “What immediately struck me about this image was the unusual perspective and the amount of lines flowing throughout the frame. Cropping the light post out on the lower right of the image and up a little from the bottom of the frame would really help focus the image on that fading train line to the Smith Tower.”
