Another shot at the Cloud Gate sculpture in Chicago. I can count 16 reflections of me. There may be more...
Cloud Gate is also known as The Bean, because of its shape. Its made of polished stainless steel and is very popular. I got up at dawn to take sunrise pictures at the lake, and was fortunate to be almost the only person at the bean at 7:12AM on my way back to the hotel.


Wow! Its been quite a week. So many wonderful comments and thanks for the great votes! This is my third PB in a row (that streak is coming to and end with my light on white, but it would be very hard to beat this one anyway), my first top 20, my first over 6 (and over 6.5!) I will have a print available as soon as it gets approved.

Fascinating reflection. I'm curious to see what or where this was after the voting ends (back to bump this one up)

I certainly imagine this will be in the top 10. It's very unusual and unique looking: 10

I didn't know it was possible to be the only one at the bean! With that shadow I'm guessing it was pretty early in the morning. Super cool shot.

The Bean? Good job on the symmetry; I bet this would look go0d in B&W

This image plays games with my eyes. Fun title fits well.

Somehow, I feel that this is the type of photo that doesn't typically do well on DPC, but I really like it. It is unique, and well executed. Good luck.

I wonder where this is, nice find and very well captured! It probably was not that easy to get a clean shot like this.

Spectacular, abstract and interesting. My favorite in this challenge. 10

Very bizarre - abstract - not usually my cup of tea. Yet, I find myself drawn onto this image. Great work
