A repetition of steel columns and girders to support the platforms of Chicago's elevated subway, commonly known as the "El", as seen down Lake Street at the Conservatory/Central Park station in Chicago, Illinois.

fantastic perspective; very professional HDR work.
wasn't it a bit dangerous at your POV inbetween all the traffic?

@Roman: Indeed, which is why I wasn't able to center myself between the two columns. And I didn't realize that there were four lanes of moving traffic. I thought the areas outside the two columns were for parking only.

Easier to inspect and fix than the concrete versions that have failed around here after just 50 years . .

Superb perspective here and very professional work and framing indeed.

I took a shot in the middle of the street and posted today but is far from having any resemblance to yours which I would feel embarrassed to compare with if I was bit shy with lack of confidence ;)

I bet your superb processing has ended up making the structure look cleaner and brighter than it does to the untrained eye.
