"Chicago Cityscape"

Took this from the 47th floor of my son's apartment building located on the north side of Chicago. This is actually a unique view as the only way anyone can take this shot is from this building and you'd have to live there to get to the top floor.

Anyway, D200 - ISO 100 Nikkor 12-24mm.

I'd like to have the chance to get a cityscape like that. Great light.

David,

Great shot and exposure. Have you managed any a bit earlier to try to separate the forest of tall buildings between you and downtown? That might also take a tighter crop.

I don't think I'd listen to anyone that suggested stepping a bit to the left .

There's lots of fun thing to separate out here; boats in the harbor and the curve of Lake Shore drive. Great stuff.

Thanks for posting, this is a fun and unique view.

Roger
It's still, ISO, aperture and shutter-speed, right?

Roger,

Thanks for looking. I agree, there is a forest of buildings in the foreground in this view - you should see it in person!
