Aperture: f/4
ISO: 100

Downtown Chicago from my deck. I love my view. I get some really spectacular sunrises - better than this one, but we didn't have a really great one during the challenge period. You can see the Hancock Building (look for twin antennae on a tall bld to the right side), but the Sears Tower is just to the right of the picture frame - I couldn't get both the rising sun and the Sears Tower in the same frame with this lens.

editing: bumped saturation up a little, darkened highlights a little, resize, cloned a few lights in the dark area, USM

The foreground is too dark, and the buildings are too small for me.

Sky and skyline are beautiful. I would like it better with less negative space in the foreground.

I love the silhouette of the city skyline, and just the hint of the sun coming up. Beautiful colors as well.

6: An interesting skyline. The sun has been captured at a good time so that it is not too bright and overpowering the image
