This is the river that goes through chicago. I just wanted to capture as much open space as possible in such a busy area. I was standing on one of the jaw bridges with an IS lens, the only editing I did is added a little lighting and the warm color temperature in picasa.

nice city scene; seems like an incredibly photogenic place. i don't really feel that the boat fills enough of the frame to really be for this particular challenge, and also my attention is being theifed by those two towers on the right. the bright sky is also somewhat overpowering; it might have been nifty to keep it the same width and crop the top half to two thirds out, and then add thick black borders top and bottom. it would make it quite panoramic,get rid of the bright sunny haze and draw attention back to the boat and the lovely green water. 6.

Colours of the water are very nice. The sky seems overexposed. I like the title.

Very nice view... a bit color work and contrast work need to be done IMHO

definitely like the composition, and contrast between the little boat and those large buildings.

Perfect vantage point. We have boats, cars, buses, all kinds of things. Well composed also. My only gripe is that is seems a bit overexposed for my taste. The bright white of the sky is a little overwhelming.
