This monument is at the corner of Halsted and Monroe Sts. right in the heart of Chicago's Greektown. I didn't notice the dog-gone CTA bus when I took the picture (isn't that the way it always is!).

For what it's worth, I gave you a 4.


I'm sorry that you feel this is the wrong place for me, but since I paid I will stay, whether you like it or not. Would you be so kind as to point out to me where in any post I claim my photos are great? My claim is that this photo was better than the votes it received. For what it's worth to you, I have had many people compliment me on my photos as well as constructively criticize them.

I'm sorry, but how could somebody give this picture a one or a two? Only two comments, so at least 3 of the one and two votes are un-commented on. As far as the 'stuff' in the background, I live in a big city (Chicago) and Halsted St., where this monument is located, is one of Chicago's busiest streets. Things like traffic lights, street signs, cars, and busses are going to show up in big city photographs. I think the monument in this picture is impressive enough to overcome any background distractions, and I consider the trees an enhancement and not a distraction to the photo.

Fits the challenge, but doesn't do a lot for me. Too much going on in the background, there is no clear focal point for the eye to settle on.

Technically good, but suffers compositionally from distracting elements in background (bus, street lamp and sign, traffic signal and pole at top).
