The architecture in Chicago is amazing. I liked especially walking under the metro in the Loop.
I think that B&W is the best way to show this perspective and the combination of light and shadow.
This is really Chicago !

I think it looks great with the B&W. I like the sun patterns on the road and they also add to a fine perspection. I've never been to USA so I like those pictures who show how it really is, thanks for the view and nice shot,

Yes it's true, with B+W you're focussing with lights. And in this picture it's good job.
Beside, B+W add something intemporal, this is Chigaco from 50's (except the new limousine).

I know what you mean.. Its really an amazing place to be and walking in downtown is one of my loved ways to pass time.
This is nicely presented in B/W and the lights and long lines of the metrop bridge lead the eyes into the picture.
Beautifully done - Vikram

Excellent B&W image - the light & shadow gives a great effect over this stretch of road. It has an almost timeless feel to it, the only things that would 'date' the image are the cars that we see.

you are right, even for me the B&W is the right choice for shot like this.

This is really Chicago ! And it looks cool. I wish I could stay there again for some days. A great place. You're right, the b&w is a good way to show light and shadow.

Great converging lines with the limo very well-placed. Black and white was perfect for this photo. Great job!

très belle photo au fort contraste. La limousine ajoute au dynamisme de l'image.

Je suis loin d'être une experte en noir et blanc, mais il me semble que ta conversion soit bien faite. La plupart du temps, tout devient dans les tons de gris, ce qui n'est pas le cas ici. J'aime le point de fuite avec ce jeu d'ombres et de lumières. C'est en effet, très fascinant. Et l'inclusion de cette limousine vient renforcer l'effet de longueur. C'est excellent!
