People are bothered by the horizon -- I should have better anticipated that. Actually, the image is level but the land slopes to the right. Just over the rise is Lake Michigan and that is the Chicago skyline on the right.

One of the best in the challenge, the tilted horizon, leads the viewers eye and musters the wind on a path toward the looming city behind...

Congrats on TT Mark. This reminds me of an apocalyptic scene with the destroyed City in the background.

The horizon is fine and I love the teensy city way off in the distance. But you've got to clean your sensor! :-)

Beautiful but the horizon seems slanted to me

nice lone tree against the city.

p.s. I would try to loose the sharpening artefact, mainly around the tree.

This is a cool composition
I love the use of the negative space
Wish the horizon was straight but i understand with the tree
Also , it looks like some type of ghosting going on up the side of the tree

The more i look at it the more I love it and wish I was standing where you were to get the shot! Well done

Very nice shot. Delicate all the way through --- tree, snowy foreground, distant city, sky and clouds.
On a personal note, my new year's resolution is to be more accepting of contrails.

Needs to be leveled out, then will be great

Love the sky, the composition and the city profile. Just wish the horizon was straight!
