Seattle, WA by skizatch Seattle, WA by skizatch
This is based on a picture that my friend Marie took while she was visiting Seattle over Christmas break. The biggest problem with the picture was that there were powerlines crossing in front of the Space Needle! So using the power of Paint.NET and its Clone Stamp tool, I removed the two that were the worst offenders. Then I added some glow with a 2nd layer using Gaussian Blur and the Overlay blend mode. Cropped it, resized it, and now it's a high-res widescreen wallpaper.

I absolutely love all of the colors in the photo! Another nice touch is how the shot was taken in a residential area instead of downtown. Love it! :love:

Having lived in Redmond, WA I went to Seattle very often (lived there for 8 years). I just recently visited to see my friends graduate at Qwest Field.

Definitely brings back memories, awesome pic.

Saw this linked from Paint.NET. Nice edit of a great photo.

Some of the better shots of the town I'm in now are lessened by power lines, tree limbs, etc. Maybe I'll take a few now and try my hand at this.

I believe he lives in Medina, on the other side of the lake, not in Seattle.

wow! cool! I use paint.NET, and i'm wondering how you removed the lines without leaving traces behind.


Great pic!

very carefully, and very slowly with the clone stamp mostly. some use of the color picker and pencil tools to per-pixel fixups. it also helps to start with an image at a higher resolution than you plan to publish at -- in this case, the original is 2560x, and then resized down to 1920x for publication
