My take on the Chicago skyline. Taken at around sunset. What do you think? Could I do anything different?

I like it, is it HDR or just processed to have a similar look?

The only nit pick I have is I wish it was perpendicular to the streets so that we were looking strait down them. Not a big deal, if this was my photo, I would be very happy with myself!

I think its great. Hard to tell at that size but it looks like there may be some halo effect on the horizon and possibly buildings? I think the HDRish effect is a tad much, only because I don't ever think Chicago has quite looked like that to me. But I think the composition is spectacular, and overall you nailed it.

Thanks guys! And yeah, it's an HDR. There is no way you can get all of the range from one shot at that time of day.

And I think you may be right about overcooking the HDR. I might try to dial it down a touch and see how that looks.

Let us see when you do. I'd love to see it.

Love the colours, not sure about the top right hand corner of the shot though...
