I can't believe how low this placed. It's a beautiful, graphic image that takes a keen eye to see. Whether you shot it this way or cropped, doesn't matter -- my hats off to you all the same.

Wow, a view from my window office ... and it's not mine! Good job. The anchoring at the right is very clever.

now, this is very striking to me. I like your idea, but you should of shown more of the lower part of surrounding buildings. The Sears tower as well.. Better cropping could of helped this a little.

I like the use of negative space in your shot.

What can I say - simply meets the challenge beautifully. Nice crisp shot too.

Interesting use of negative space, but the dark sky in the upper right hand almost distracts me from the rest of the picture

Hey, great framing, it makes the town look so tiny. and I really like the color of the sky.

interesting compostion but too much sky that really doesn't add to the photo, and not enough cityscape where the eye keeps looking for more..

This does not work for me. The chopped off buildings just seem to hang.
