A few views of Portland from the 30th floor of the Big Pink

August 23, with Milton and Kay, I enjoyed my city from on high, through these views from the Portland City Grill in downtown.

Looking south along SW 5th Avenue. I cropped and altered with image at Picnik with the HDR-ish effect.

Looking southeast with the Morrison Bridge in the foreground--it's undergoing work to replace the open steel grating on the lift span. I cropped and sharpened the image a little bit at Picnik.

Looking mostly south down the Willamette River. The bridges, from the foreground back--the Hawthorne Bridge, the Marquam Bridge, and then the Ross Island Bridge. This photo has been cropped and sharpened at Picnik.

More views soon.

I've never had the good fortune to visit your fair city. At least I'm getting a birds eye view from your photos.

Good work on the processing. The HDR effect on the first pic makes for an interesting look!

I like that top photo overlooking the buildings. They are all great.

beautiful views of Portland. I have never been to the restaurant in Dallas that gives the view of the city.

Having visited Portland many times, I appreciate the bird's eye view of the cityscape.

Lovely shots here. I think everyone 'fixes' their pictures one way or another though I never admit to it.
