This is an underground walkway under Lake Shore Drive in Chicago that leads to the beach. I had been to a Polar Bear meeting where a large group of crazies run out into Lake Michigan. It was about 15 degrees F. I did not get any interesting pictures of the swimmers but I liked this one I took on my way back to the car. It has scored about as well as I figured, but I am very happy with the comments and PH bling. Thanks.

Loved this Mark. Knowing this is yours I can now very well place you. I used to live on the Gold Coast at Dearborn and Elm :)

This is a new comment series for me, so please bear with me while I find my style!

(Voted earlier)

This is one of my 9s - I like it a lot. Furthermore I think it enriches the DPC collective portfolio. Put simply, I wish we saw more stuff like this. Let me tell you why it pushes all the right buttons for me:

1. Great sense of depth with those leading lines and people diminishing as they go into the distance.

2. It's fascinating how the vectors mean that those figures in your proximity are motion blurred while those distant (and walking away from you) remain pristine.

3. I really like how you have the tonal range well covered - great shadows, great highlights and brilliant mid tones too.

4. I really enjoy the figures at the end of the tunnel.

Overall, a really engaging image.

Looks like a disaster evacuation or zombies attack. Love it.

I Like the timelessness and tension in this image. The title isn't working for me though.
