I'm finally getting around to editing some of the shots I took during our trip to Chicago a couple of weeks ago. The first of those is this skyline shot here taken from the Signature Lounge atop the Hancock Building on the 96th floor! Awesome views from up there! The only weird thing though was that on the other side of the windows were tons of spiders and spider webs - 96 floors up! That's a whole lot of climbing for those guys.. To try to combat that, I opened up the aperture all the way to blur out everything close to the lens. But, the sky has some blotches in it that I can seem to make heads or tails of.. Sorry about that. Otherwise, I like the shot and I hope you do, too!
Thanks for dropping by! As always, click here to see the high-res version of the final image.
