I love your pictures!

I feel like each picture went together perfectly because they all had an orange, cream, or reddish color in common. Was that intentional?

So much quality it's stunning. your photos always impress. it's always nice to see them all togehter - fascinating actually. really stunning collection you have a good eye for a good op. one thing i missed while in portland was doing depth of field shots - i am a little jealous that you can just go back the next day and take some amazing photos of an amazing city that you missed previously.

Oh good lord. Talk about a case of sensory overload. So many photos - so many of them so so so very good.

You are amazingly talented. Your photos are stunning. Thanks for sharing!

It's amazing because Portland has a very unrecognizable skyline and buildings, but it's so incredibly vibrant and urban. Brilliant job capturing that. Great quality as well.

Next time someone asks what is Portland like, I'm going to reference this thread & say there it is in a nutshell. You are improving to the point where it is beyond excellent & entering flawless.

Thanks to all those who commented. I appreciate the kind words.

@ cityscapes - no, that wasn't intentional, but looking through all the photos I see what you mean.

Thanks guys. Evergrey... that can't be true, but I appreciate the sentiment, and the bump... I thought this thing was headed for the wasteland of page 2 a little too soon.
