One of the fun things about night shots is that you can get some interesting â€œfreeâ€ effects from the different color temperatures used in street and building lighting. This is a shot of downtown Seattle, taken from the Space Needle late at night â€” shortly before they chased us all off the observation deck.
Here, the white balance is set to make the building lights look right â€” resulting in orange streets. I particularly like how the monorail line is silhouetted from beneath.
