    Really like the third. What were the colours in the reflection like in the 4th? It might look better in colour.

    I like the one at the train station. I hate getting on the train after a day in wonderful Chicago. Can't wait to take my camera into the city soon! I really like seeing the water in #1 too.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. I wish I could have taken more in the train station but the train was about to leave so I was in a hurry an only able to snap 2 pics maybe I can get better shots next time I go to the city

    3.

    Really like the red light reflecting off of the front of the train. That TV in the center is a little distracting. If you could darken that a bit, I think it would work nice.

    I like the train one best. BTW what metra station was that? I go into LaSalle St, and the platforms are a lot wider than those

    The metra station was union station near the Adams st entrance. I think the reason no one said anything was cause I only had enough time to take one pic. I'm sure if I had hung around and taken more pics I would have been told to take a hike.

    # 1 is nice...could be a little sharper.
    #2 - what is your subject?
    #3 I think the Screen and the Emergency phone sign ruined it. Maybe if you were to the right more and got more of the train in the shot; and eliminated the poles would have been nicer.
    #4 is pretty cool...what does it look like in color?
