This was taken from the 61st floor of the John Hancock Center.
I love city shots at night.
Very nice. Well executed. How about trying one looking down into the buildings a little more (and eliminating the sky) but with a wider lens?
Thank you for the reply!
I didn't think of that. I appreciate it. Once I got to the floor my tripod head broke off my tripod, so I took this against the window propped by three pillows. What a pain! Also, I was afraid of clipping any of the tops of the skyscrapers especially the "Sears" Tower.
A wider lens would be nice. That's why I really want the Sigma 8-16. Any suggestions/recommendations for one?!
Tokina 11-16 f/2.8!!
oh yeah. since you are in chicago. You should come down and check out my homegirls show. ♫ http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_FtJqjjRfd... Makers_Poster_11x17_WEB.firstname.lastname@example.org
free show with live bands and free booze!! i'll be working the photobooth!
I like it as is - the wider shot would be interesting in a different way - especially good work under the circumstances you describe.
This is really more S than W, though, isn't it? As I remember, if you really look due W, there isn't that much to see.
I really like this photo. It was a good choice to shoot in vertical orientation to emphasize the heights of the buildings.
Might be my eyes, but I'm noticing some barrel distortion in the tall building on the right.
Love the shot otherwise
It's not your eyes. I noticed right away. What caused it? The lens?!
I have been reading and seeing the Tokina a lot more. 2.8 is pretty fast.
I will check it out!
LOL! Now I am turned around. You might be correct.
i took a load of daylight shots from the Hancock, even bought the extended pass to go back, but assumed at night the glare from the coffee shop lights would have been to harsh - guess that's not the case? I'm going back next week - guess I should pay a nightime visit to the hancock.
