Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 22 October 2020 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

A view from the Lake Shore Drive bridge as we are driving over the Chicago River and looking west toward the prominent building that sports the name of a US President on the main facade. Thankfully, the name cannot be seen in this photo. I managed to get in a series of five shots as we drove slowly across. This turned out to be the best as it was perfectly framed. It needed a little straightening, but I love the autumn colors along the river walks below.

Photo captured October 11, 2020.

I like the high-key overall tone. you got a well framed view. It seems to me the buildings on the left side of the river are a little more key-stoned than those on the right, though they are close
