Contender for the 2016 olympic games.

Thanks for the comments. Actually, very little post processing since I was visiting my sister and she doesn't have any picture programs. I just sharpened and resized. The clouds were as seen!

Thank you. I was expecting another shot of D.C. or Toronto!

The shot of the city is beautiful! It makes a very nice postcard.

After seeing a number of these very similar images from Sydney to Seattle to Hong Kong to Malaysia, you get a little jaded and tired trying to treat each one as unique and giving the entries the respect they deserve. Then there is this - its similar, yet different in detail. The Chicago 2016 theme is a good one and it works well. It might have helped to put Chicago 2016 somewhere in the image or in a border along the bottom, but the image works as it is - very well composed, no a single highlight blow out, nice mix of tone and shades of tones - is a great one. Well done.

Nice shot but a little to much sky IMO.

Nice image. I'm guessing a lot of post processing. Compared to other night skyline images, I like how the buildings are lit up. I like how you can see the buildings against the sky as opposed to being lost in the dark. The only negative for me is that the clouds look odd, not quite normal/natural, but I can't put my finger on it. Overall a nice postcard image.

I really would have liked to see text on this and some kind of frame. As it is now its kind of bland and just a cityscape. Needs some punch to it.

Great night shot. Wish you'd made it look like a postcard with text, but that's my taste. :~)
