Daily Deviation

Given 2011-01-17
Suggester says; This is an excellent example of a clever use of a reflection to capture a cityscape. There's also quite a nice balance of sky and buildings - there's just enough of each to make this photo dynamic and eye-catching.

THis was very well done! I love how you added a couple of building to the right and it goes well with the reflectivve buildings behind it. I live in Chicago and have seen many photos that people took of this. Your's the best one I've seen. You've capture Chicago at it ripest moment. And also the reflection of the sky and the sky itself is pure talent! And you even caught the sun. Amazing work. You also made a wise choice at taking the picture when no one is around. It give the photo a pure, calm feel. And The vibrate colors of the flags adds a hint of the fiestivties that are in Chicago. Awesome!

And I'm not sayin' this because I'm a Chicagoian neither. lol :D

This is a sculpture.  The locals call it the Bean, but it's really named the Cloud Gate. -> en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_Ga…

Yoiu must have been there early. I've been at that exact place about a million times but there's always such a crowd to take proper photography

What a unique angle! This is the first picture of the sculpture I've seen that doesn't focus on the fact that it's a silver bean. Outrageous!

If only Chicago looked like this everyday. Seems like lately whenever I visit it's less than blue skies and fluffy white clouds. But amazing photo nonetheless!

anish kapoor is one of the greatest artist today !
on photo, I don't like the right corner and the buildings...they look like they will collapse on the city; and on the same time, it's interesting too !
nice captured ;)
