Nice capture again Steven. The details and the colors are so well highlighted with the HDR treatment, I also like the halo effect on the buildings and the beautiful flag. Have a great day :)

@Tamara: The "halo effect" is something I try to avoid. But what dismays me is that what shows up on my laptop monitor (where I do all my uploading) the photos look fine without any halos. Then I see the photos on other monitors, and the halos show up. :-(

A fantastic shot Steven, it's so good it doesn't look real. Very professional.

Well, normally I try to avoid it too, but in this particular case it's not disturbing at all... that's my sincere opinion. FYI : I'm on a mac, sometimes images are looking different when I see them on a pc.
Thank for your reply :)

A superb vision Steven - the blue sky is outstanding and th buildings are very nicely framed. Great job as always sir!

Cor blimey, strong blues here, but they do help to accentuate the sharpness of the buildings. I bet that Wrigley building was one of the city's tallest when it was built.

Okay I love the color here but.. around the buildings the blue halos.. so you like have to come up with some light refraction fact or something.. because otherwise I have to accuse you of getting out there with a brush and painting the sky! ;)

What a grand view of the bridge and beyond. I enjoy the huge flag there.

That glow on the buildings and their shininess looks very cool.
