Seattle houseboats

Here's something a little different!  Although I like the "big" scenes that I shoot in HDR, sometimes it's fun to throw in a little something unexpected...like a pastel-colored, intentionally soft houseboat shot.  :)  

I caught this image while wandering along Lake Union in Seattle a while back.  I had a few minutes before a meeting, and this area caught my eye, and seemed familiar.  It turns out this is near the houseboat that was used in the movie Sleepless in Seattle (at least according to some locals, it is).  I went for a soft, dreamy sort of processing here and thought it worked, especially with all the bright colors in the scene.  It made me think of a painting.
