    Crop on Photo 1 is ok.
    You might consider playing with the levels even more in most of your pics. I feel that Photo 1 and mostly so that of the swing could have some more "punch" ... the one of the swing might also be good as b&w conversion, maybe with a mild sepia toning (?).

    The Bean without people is, indeed, a rare sight... not that I've ever seen The Bean with my own eyes, only here on TPF in photos of others, but so far always with people in it. To bring it out more, you might crop in even more from all sides. It might look good. I can imagine that it does.

    The one of the boats is too busy for my liking.

    I tried the swing in b&w, it seemed kinda dull. I'm going to play with it some more.

    yea I have it printed 11x14. the sun makes the bean "glow" looks cool.

    I agree here. I tried to do some things with the colors but too many sail poles around. I was trying to portray that chicago has the largest harbor system in america. which is true.

    thanks for your feedback

    #1 looks MUCH better! :thumbup:

    #2 is OOF, hard to find something in focus.

    #3 is a great shot of Cloud Gate. I love the sun behind it and the contrast between the silver bean and blue skies. However everything is soft again, but not so noticeable as the harbor shot. Id sharpen up the edges of the Cloud Gate and this is a winner.

    #4 is ok, dont have much to say about it. I think it would look alot better in B&W. Just my opinion....

    #5 is cool. Is that an F-16? Anyways, love the color and angle and youve cropped it perfectly. Would like to see a border on it.

    On a harbor, there is lots of movement, making it hard to get a still image. Id recommend using a tripod and a flash.

    The 1 is my favorite. I like much the photos of the great cities, and Chicago is a great city without a doubt.
    Greetings from Spain.

    yes it was. I used to install wireless antennas on top of highrise buildings in chicago. Aon being the tallest I was on. only very select group of people has access to the roof. regardless of the quality of the actual pic, which I know isnt great, I still think they are fun to look at.
