I still can't get used to the Sears Tower being referred to as the John Hancock building. Some things just simply should not change.
P.S. I don't care what they say Pluto is a planet!

@Ralph Jones: Sears Tower is not referred to as the John Hancock building. It's referred to as Willis Tower, or "Big Willie," which is what I think you meant to say. :-)

A change from the vivid colours I normally see here, the subtle toning combined with the tone mapping works really well.

Even the Chase Bank Building (FKA Bank One Building, FKA First Chicago Building) is dwafed by JH. Any plans to visit the new cabin in Dubai, which I hear is taller than the Willis (FKA Sears) Tower and Hancock Tower put together?
Intersting wash of the tones for this shot. Nice location and perspective.
