Photographer: Patrick Schrote, Seattle

Photo taken: Dec. 7, off Lowman Park, West Seattle

Photographer's description: "Christmas ship, with the Olympics in the background at sunset.”

Expert says: "This would make a great Christmas-card image. I love the color of the sky against the mountains. The setting light on the boat separates it from the dark background. If that light wasn’t there, this photo wouldn’t work, even with the lights on the boat. This photo feels like the holidays in the Puget Sound area and that’s one of the reasons I like it so much. Lovely shot."

-- Katie Greene, Seattle Times photo staff
