It´s the part of impressive Chicago´s skyline seen from the beach located next to N.Lake Shore Drive.
The black skysraper you can see in the middle of the shot is John Hancock Center-with its 344m height one of the tallest buildings in Chicago.

Dobar tekst o arhitekturi, lepo pogled ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, ostrina i kontrast, lepo pokazan deo grada sa visokim zgradama i trenutak sa belim oblacima, lepe boje.
Dobar rad i kompozicija, lepo uhvacen trenutak, lepa arhitektura.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
A good article on the architecture, nice view ...

Good work and composition, well captured moment, beautiful architecture.

an architectural shot presented in your wonderfully accomplished style. Man made mountains from an imposing POV with stunning PP that makes them so attractive and strangely beautiful. Superb image! Love it!
Have a good week - B.

Hello Krzysztof - Your PP work has given this shot a delicate fineness on the buildings, especially those on the RHS where the light bounces off the glass. Although this is a built up urban area the FG grassland and trees add to the feeling of airy spaciousness that you shot conveys.

Wonderful shot with beautiful sky. Beautiful composition. The skyscrapers are beautifully highlighted.
josepmarin (57693) 2014-03-17 4:44
this is a good vision on the Chicago skyline, where we can admire the breathtaking architecture of its tall buildings.
The low POV offers us a deep perspective, which enhances the graphical power of the city.
Chicago is a city that I want to visit sometime, perhaps the next year.
A good composition.
PS: enjoy Istanbul!!

This is a beautiful skyline, and a wonderful capture of it. As a fan of tall buildings since being young, the Hancock centre has always been one I have admired. This shot of it places it so well in the city surrounded by the other great towers. A lovely composition, with very special light that makes this look to me like a scene from the future. Brilliant idea to have this beautiful view taken from the ground, a unique and lovely result.
All the best

very nice skyline.

Sharp picture as I can detect each window on the skyscrapers, Krzysztof.
Intriguing city, windy yet impressive - you managed to convey wonderful scene about.
ourania (29387) 2014-03-17 11:24
a very attractive and impressive photo, the buildings huddle together in smaller groups and the skyline is full of character, interesting shapes and details. A dynamic view that fills the frame and is enhanced by the dramatic sky and the striking contrast of the undeveloped foreground. The colours are superb and I particularly enjoy the shiny and gritty surfaces. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

A stunning view showing many huge skyscrapers from a city that is so famous of them. Interesting to see them next to such empty looking beach. Good half cloudy weather which makes an excellent background.

Witaj Krzysztof, piekna kompozycja wspanialych wiezowcow. Bardzo ladne ujecie z fantastycznego punktu widzenia pokazujac ich wspanialosc. Bardzo ladna kolorystyka Krzysiu jak swiatlo i samo wykonanie. Widac ze pogoda dopisala bo niebo dodal;o wspanialej juz wiosennego nastroju. Bardzo ladna praca jak zawsze.
Serdecznie pozdrawiam, Barbara

Stepping back in time just a little bit, eh...I like it! :) I don't know if it's this viewpoint and composition, or the processing work...or maybe just both, but this looks to me very much like a future project rendition to be showcased at a public unveiling of what's to come for the downtown area.
It's quite fascinating, and I really like how this turned out...there's kind of a surrealist effect going on here. The light and crisp detail of the buildings to the right is eye-catching, and the reddish tint of the trees add a spark of contrast against the barren foreground. You had a great sky too, the clouds make a subtle, but dramatic point. Onward and upward, life in the big city! :) Enjoy the new day. Take it easy.
Cheers from across the way,
Thanks again for the help with my last metropolitan shot.

As high mountains rising on the edge of a plain, you show us this image of the skyscrapers of Chicago seen from the beach.
Best regards, Paul

344 m, nieźle. Znakomity widok tego kompleksu wieżowców wurastających z pustego nieciekawego placu. Swietne kolory im wspaniała ostrość. Imponujący widok.
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-03-18 8:31
rzeczywiscie ta panorama drapaczy chmur jest bardzo imponujaca, a najbardziej podoba mi sie w niej roznorodnosc wysokosci budynkow, ktora sprawia ze zdjecie nie jest monotonne. Sporo tu geometrii w kompozycji i to najpierw rzuca sie w oczy, ale przy dokladnym przyjrzeniu sie mozna zauwazyc te piekne drezwa okalajace swer, ktore przy wiezowcach wygladaja jak krzaczki prawie, ale ktore takze zmiekczaja optycznie zdjecie.
Swietne kolory i bardzo udana fotografia.
Romano46 (16662) 2014-03-18 14:26
una foto molto bella e particolarmente interessante per l'originale visione di una città famosa.
Mi piace in maniera particolare la composizione e la cura della ripresa che permette di apprezzare ogni dettaglio della famosa città americana.
Ottima sia la definizione che la cura del colore.
Ciao e buona serata

Fabulous shot of the buildings.Truly exclusive.Excellent pov and sharpness. Very well done ,TFS.
Hansaphotos (6593) 2014-03-19 13:34
A fascinating view of Chicago. The foreground park is a nice addition to this urban jungle of skyscrapers. You managed the difficult lighting conditions well. The collection of tall buildings together with all the windows creates a nice graphical effect. Great work:)
Have a nice evening.
macjake (54930) 2014-03-20 16:08
Josep told you to enjoy Istanbul...are you going recently? I'll be there May 9th :)
this show me exactly why i want to visit Chicago!
I want to photograph these skyscrapers to death :)
love the 'dead' area in the fg too, didn't expect to see that. is that some type of parking lot or something?
RhodieIke (11542) 2014-03-22 23:38
Love your Pov, here in this great city Chicago.The skyscrapers are shown in a fine form.We get a sense of scale, on to these fine buildings.
Well done, Tfs,
abmdsudi (41984) 2014-03-23 8:22
Very different from the normal city scape shot. Love the perspective from low angle all are pointing towards the sky that works well with the concept with minimal foreground. It is a fabulous shot with wonderful colours, great composition and presentation such a clean crisp image except the white clouds not half bad either! - you know what i mean. Whatever it is, it makes for a superb capture!! Good work, TFS
danos (85165) 2014-03-24 0:33

Mics (681) 2014-03-25 10:55
Attractive awesome shot with fine sharp colors! Beautifully done :-)
Cricri (104433) 2014-03-25 11:59
Impressionnant la hauteur des buildings, il y en a un qui semble avoir comme une maison au-dessus, il est intéressant de voir la différence comme les personnes et les arbres qui sont minuscule, jolies teintes et présentation
delpeoples (52905) 2014-03-30 3:39
Superb Rule of Thirds framing, stunning bokeh effect and impressive detail. It looks like an HDR image, which has beautifully defined the skyscrapers and the golden colours of the ground and sparse trees. Excellent use of the landscape format.
annjackman (18975) 2014-04-03 22:18
The city looks very impressive from N. Lake Shore Drive and I think that I have photos from the same viewpoint. I like the various colours of the buildings that you show and the wonderful range of architectural design. You have photographed this wonderful city very well.
Kind Regards, Ann.

I know, some people just hate the skyscrapers, concrete jungles etc. But I like this graphic composition as a photographer, for example. Excellent combination of the sky and so impressive human productions.
Well seen. Some later I will show you a view of LA downtown.
Greetings from Eagle Rock, LA!
