Interesting aspect. Nice work

Very nice capture, just the 'odd' horizon that takes the edge off for me.

How can voters be giving images like this a 1? Trying to vote down an image that they think could be a winner?

Captivating city shot.

Fun that you can see the blur of the cars. The lighting looks great. My only concern is the sloping horizon, though it may not have been easy to correct from that perspective.

What a spectacular view, can't wait to see where downtown, that is one big city and very nice capture. It's different from the common horizontal "city lights" line.
03/26/2006 09:56:22 AM
Wow, thats awesome, wonderful lights.
03/26/2006 06:39:18 AM

Nice angle.
03/24/2006 11:19:35 AM
I like the way this one just glows... Taken from the Hancock?
03/23/2006 07:29:14 PM
Nice capture. I would have liked the horizon a little more level, but that's just me.
03/23/2006 03:37:29 PM
like the lights a lot!

I love chicago
03/22/2006 12:57:13 PM
Pretty cool but when you compare this to "kirbic"´s shot this suddenly pales in comparsion but this is still good so I gave it a 6.

03/21/2006 12:41:38 PM
holy cow, that's fantastic.
03/21/2006 09:01:48 AM
This'll do well. I know exactly where you were standing to get this shot :) The tilted horizon is a nice touch.
03/21/2006 05:36:59 AM
Wow - great photo. I like the detail and the depth. I give it an
03/20/2006 11:34:58 PM
Nice shot of Chicago at night but not anything to make it exciting.
03/20/2006 07:45:55 PM
Levelling with the horizon might have made for a more effective shot, but overall a nice photo. 6
03/20/2006 05:56:36 PM
great picture, pity the horizon is not level
03/20/2006 05:53:33 PM

03/20/2006 04:19:40 PM
not fair.... Chicago is so nice at night
03/20/2006 11:31:38 AM

03/20/2006 01:00:54 AM

03/20/2006 12:51:05 AM
Great clarity.....
03/20/2006 12:31:13 AM
i know right where this was taken. i've been there ans shot the same thing. great job with the colors and framing. i like the look down from buildings and this is always the most effective way to shoot in chicago, or at least to me it is.

anyways well worth the 10 some odd dollers they charge ya to get up there eh?

great iamge GL with it.

(btw hopfuly ppl with think i took it) lol just kidding. 8
