Early one foggy on Du Sable Bridge at the southern end of Chicago's Magnificent Mile. Michigan Avenue is a main street for shopping.

Thanks for all the great comments. I am thrilled with how well this has done.

This makes me think of those classic black and white photos that we all use now to see how people lived back in the day. I suspect this could also fall into the same category in the future :) Congrats on the blue!

Congrats, Mark!!! I know exactly where this is. Chi Town never looks as good as it does through your lens.

I think this could be the cover photo of a Chicago Photo Book. You have enough material for that, I believe. Congrats Mark, wonderful shot!

Sure would be nice to live in a city with character filled buildings, kind of makes it more the worth while.

Loving the wet pavement look.

Predict the blue.

Great capture. One of my top 3.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very pretty shot. There is a bit much of the empty space at the bottom of the photo. A square crop might have turned this into a top notch photo in my mind. But still a 9 from me, I love the flags you captured.

I like this for its realism and difference to our main street, thank you.

Top pick. Like the multiple leading lines, the people and traffic elements, and the big city skyline backdrop. Has the style of a [thumb]markwiley[/thumb] photo. If this isn't Mark's photo, take it as a compliment.

My top score: monochrome works on the somewhat candid subject. The sharpness is a nice contrast to the foggy background. Well done and thank you.
