This image would have been a 10 for me. I love it.
05/02/2005 12:15:57 PM
That´s just awesome. I really love it.

Just beautiful....

i work printing pics in the suburbs of chicago and i dunno how many pics have come through of millenium park. I need to get down there. best take in it i've seen yet. might've benefitted from a tigher crop though?

I seen this one while viewing the shots a week ago. I thought for sure it would win a ribbon. Oh well...you did good and caught my attention. congrats on the top 10!
10/25/2004 12:18:31 AM
Awsome shot! I can't see you in the reflection, hmmmm? Well done.
10/25/2004 12:08:57 AM

Beautiful picture, simply beautiful :) One of Favs now :) My only 10
10/24/2004 07:51:36 PM
Great subject and exposure. Composition looks a little weak to me though. I'm sure there could have been a more interesting viewpoint.
10/24/2004 07:20:59 PM
This is a fine photo! Great shot. This one you should try to sell! 10
10/24/2004 01:25:33 PM
Unique! Great distortion on the sky line. I'm wondering how a tighter crop would look. Great eye.
10/23/2004 10:21:03 PM
Very nice. Love the green-ish tint and the color of the sky. My bet is that this will ribbon. Marked as favorite.

returning for comments
A great capture and certainly showing imagination in presentation.
10/23/2004 03:30:11 PM
man... if you could just get the brightness/contrast set so the edge of the statue would blend in more with the sky and be invisible... that would be really great! otherwise still a nice shot
10/22/2004 07:29:14 PM
very very nice....I find it very engaging....good eye for the unusual....
10/22/2004 06:04:47 PM
I would have cropped out the lights on the left, cool idea and well done
10/22/2004 04:35:25 AM
Wonderful, I like it 10.
10/21/2004 04:46:54 PM
maybe a tighter crop....still very good! i dont know if it is just me but should i be able to see you in this, or is the illusion that it puts you so far back you cant see yourself...i dont know..cool shot though
10/21/2004 01:11:11 AM
Nice shot. A less centered, perhaps even angled, approach might have added even more interest, but I like it. Good job.
10/20/2004 01:04:16 PM
Nice location and nice capture, however I would have cropped it tighter.
10/20/2004 06:04:42 AM
This is an excellent way to take a common theme and make it unique. Well done. 9.
10/20/2004 01:25:02 AM
Wow! This is a unique take on this theme. Love the sharp focused reflection. Also like the muted color tones with the bright lights.
10/20/2004 12:04:10 AM
Can't vote, but wanted to say WOW!
10/19/2004 05:09:27 PM
Can't wait for the print of this one... my favorite!
10/19/2004 05:01:35 PM
this is a great shot. would love a tighter crop.
10/19/2004 02:30:07 PM
Ahh, we've seen this subject before. Great clarity in the reflection; I love the city lights reflecting off the clouds reflected in the reflection. : ) Good job.
10/19/2004 01:49:08 PM
Wow, now that is a neat picture. BTW, where is that sculpture?
10/19/2004 10:06:46 AM
Intriguing and creative.
10/19/2004 09:43:31 AM
I think i saw such before but i really like your shot.
10/18/2004 09:33:12 PM
Outstanding shot.
10/18/2004 05:43:46 PM
looks like a big water droplet. Excellent photo.
10/18/2004 04:47:25 PM
Interesting subject. good colrs. 7.
10/18/2004 03:59:12 PM
I remember seeing this thing in the news just recently, and I was even thinking that it would certainly make an interesting DPC image. It almost looks like some sort of funky Photoshop effect, doesn't it? Nice job with the exposure, etc. Very cool shot!
10/18/2004 03:46:11 PM
Great Idea and shot
10/18/2004 03:31:39 PM
I've seen other photos of this (not in this challenge) at various times of day and weather combinations. Shooting it at night and catching the reflections was a great idea and it's well executed. Among my top picks.
10/18/2004 02:16:56 PM
What a great subject for a photo! Very nicely carried out too (I'm guessing this one will end up high).
10/18/2004 11:39:55 AM
great reflection... nice image.. i like the colors and light.. how the reflection merges into the background. I have been recently really intrigued by reflections. Great image. perhaps i would like to see it a 'touch' darker, or more contrast to get some blacks in the image.
10/18/2004 10:56:21 AM
Wow, I predict a ribbon with this one. Great color, sharpness.
10/18/2004 06:42:03 AM
Very very nice. gorgaous skyline here. Personally, i would have liked the sculpture / reflective element to fill more of the screen, but overall i like the look of the shot. quite unique, i love the distortion of the skyline and the clarity / sharpness is great. 8.
10/18/2004 02:08:15 AM
The Bean! Whast a wonderful shot with Chicago skyline 'painted' across! Colors are beautiful too! Chicago's popular this challenge - Buckingham Fountain, Lakeshore Drive, and this, wow!
10/18/2004 12:39:49 AM
OH WOW! This is WAY cool! 9
