City of Big Shoulders with Museum Campus

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 10 November 2009 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

A full shot of the Chicago skyline with the quad-like surroundings of the Museum Campus in the foreground instead of Lake Michigan. People can exit "stage right" along the sidewalk and walk under Lake Shore Drive to the infamous Grant Park. This is not a panoramic stitching.

Photo taken September 27, 2009

I had to look closely to see that this was an actual photo. It almost looks like a painting! The colors are just fantastic.

Wonderful Steven. Your processing of this colorful scene gives it an 'idealized' feeling - I can hear the musical group 'Chicago' playing, "Saturday in the Park."
