This is a view from Millennium Park, Chicago. I was captured by the lines created by the promenade running alongside the park, and by the woman standing in the tiny canal trying to capture the lines of the impressive Chicago skyscrapers with her camera. To the left you can see a bit of the roof belonging to the scene in the wonderful Millennium park.
Thanks for viewing.

delightful view of the Chocago skyscrapers and the part of the Millenium Park.Excellent POV and perspective chosen.I like the idea to capture it from above this little canal,which lead us fantastic towards the main subject.Very good execution and superb colors.As I see,you had also luck with the weather,what really helps to animate this scene.
I´ve took similar photo,just put stress to present the Pritzker Pavillion,which is also visible in your image.
And I´m really impressed by one of those skyscrapers with wavy facade.Looks great.Unfortunately couldn´t find any information about it.
Have a good day

belle prise d'architecture moderne avec un avant plan vivant. Un ciel d'un beau bleu couronne le tout, photographié sans aucune distorsion de perspective.
C'est net , bien cadré et évidemment le format vertical convient à merveille.

You chose an excellent angle, the long lines of the wall and street care for depth and perspective.
What a lovely city panorama view.
Color and sharpness are very pleasant.
Very well done, TFS.

Very effective perspective is created by your POV. The presented image has a considerable horizontal depth. I love the way in which the horizontal perspective turns itself into a series of vertical towers in reality. If I cut a section of this image in half and looked at the cut surface, this photo has an L shaped profile. It is a very fascinating way to photograph the towers. The presented colours and the clarity of the image could not become more balanced. A spectacular image! Thank you for this intriguing photo. The approach and the execution of the photo fascinate and intrigue me. I like the presented image very much.
With my very best regards,
Have a great day ahead, Erling,

Fine architectural details from Chicago skyline
Amazing light that really makes details and colours stand out and blossom, great lines that create a strong perspective...
And I notice some that really step into it for a good point of view..!

as Neyvan mentioned, its a great urban landscape.
I don't understand how some people don't like these cityscapes :)
having that lady stand in the water is a neat addition, it shows us how warm it is there. but what i really like are the contrasting long linear lines mixed with the tall vertical lines.
hope you're having an enjoyable w/e
