p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Chicago at Night


Figured I bought a tripod, I should probably use it. Some of them I'm pretty sure I forgot to level.

Also I really hate the orange lights. I think they said they would switch them out this year but that switch hasn't been completed and it annoys me to no end.

Very cool series, and makes me miss Chicago more than I do already, having left it behind to come to this mess of a town.

I think 12 and 13 could use a bit of white balance adjustment, and #1 I find a touch distracting because of how bright the foreground is. Overall though, I think these are really good images.

Like I said, I hate how we have orange lights so I tried to brighten it up and with all the cars passing through its closer to truth and yes #1 I considered leaving it out. The foreground is bright because there was a giant light behind me but I liked the colors in the distance.

Thank you to you and everyone else's comments!

These are really great! Where did you take picture #4? I love it.

All I have to say is watch your framing. Cutting off the tops of the buildings bothered me a bit in 7 & 8.

Yeah, hard to see the frame sometimes at night.

And #4 was at the Adler, they have a viewing area and it's all glass building behind it.

7 & 8 and many others feature a lot of street and cut off the tops of the buildings. Your exposures are all over the place with many too bright. Your enthusiasm and variety is good

Great shots, especially the one with the chains on the seawall. Love everything being in focus from the foreground to the far distance. What lens were you using? I was there about a year and a half ago and Marilyn was where the Christmas tree is now.

I was using my lovely 17-35mm for most of these and some of them my 70-200mm VRI.

And yeah Marilyn is gone now. Don't know why it wasn't made permanent but whatever.

Yes, there is a slight leveling issue in a few pictures but you have taken all of them at great exposure. The lighting is perfect. My personal favorites are 1, 5 and 8. 13 is a bit too over exposed for my liking.
