This is my first photo from my last trip to Chicago.Unfortunately for me,the weather was very cold and rainy at this time.But it does not change the fact,that Chicago is a really beautiful city with impressive architecture and very friendly people.
This particular picture was taken from N.Michigan Avenue Bridge(in my opinion the most beautiful bridge in Chicago).The riverside in Chicago´s downtown is a perfect place to admire the beautiful skyscrapers.

C'est une superbe photo urbaine. J'aime bien les teintes de brun des édifices sous ce ciel nuageux. Le petit bateau semble bien fragile et presque d'une autre époque.

Ein wenig düster, dein erstes Foto aus U.S.A, aber es gefällt. Chicago ist ja eine der sehr windige Stadt.
Es war sicher ein Erlebnis, dort zu sein.
(ich war wieder in Bosnien, bei sehr schönen Wetter)
Wünsch dir eine schöne Woche

Welcome back from the states. You have brought us a wonderful image of Chicago. Your photo makes me wonder what it's like to live there. Beautifully rendered towers contrasted by the reflections on the river. A boat moving away from the POV is a nice touch. Was it cold in Chicago? but your hands were very steady.I look forward to seeing even more beautiful images from your trip.

Very nice framing, good light management. I love the little boat strolling on the river that gives movement to this urban landscape.
All the best,

To zdjęcie fantastyczna noc w rzece, która odzwierciedla światła drapaczy chmur.
Wspaniałe perspektywy, bardzo dobre światło i szczegółowo.

Belle ambiance nocturne de la ville, belle vue sur le canal, les reflets et le bateau, bonne gestion de la lumière et de jolies teintes

Nice night shot with the buildings on both sides. The small boat adds charm to the image. Nice colors and superb light management.

Molte luci in un quartiere di uffici illuminano come un firmamento artificiale lo sfondo.
Il fiume riflette le luci e la barca da movimento alla scena .

I now understand your absence from TE - wonderful and clear night scenery on the impressive town.
The scrapes are dominating the image, and river is scaling that.
carlosmarin (11954) 2011-04-27 2:02
I love this night view of Chicago River, with all the illuminated skyscrapers.
Good POV and good exposure.

City of night.

ruisc_pt (10892) 2011-04-29 8:38
Impressive night picture Krzysztof.
I like above all the POV and the warm tonalities of the reflections over the river.
Juntas (7960) 2011-05-03 2:31
Hi Krzysztof. Very nice scene from Chicago. The illumination looks great and the city lights reflected on the water and in the clouds are very beautiful. Great point of view and composition well balanced. A fine work.
Have a nice day.
josepmarin (58343) 2011-05-08 11:42
Chicago is a city that I want to visit, and your photos increases my desire.
This night capture is fantastic, you obtained a great result in spite of the bad weather.
I like the perspective of the river and the wonderful skyscrapers, elegantly illuminated, and the good light and colors level,as well.
It is a gorgeous composition.

Hello Krzysztof, very nice light, excellent exposition, i like very much the texture and grafic of the building and also the soft reflection in the water, have a nice day, Valter
claudeD (37772) 2011-12-13 12:36
Very fine night shot with an excellent light mangment. I like the reflections in the water very much. You are right that a wide angle lens is very good especially for pictures of cities.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg

A nice blackhour photo with interesting golden/brown tonalities. The chosen POV give us a fine view from Chicago downtown. The boat in the foreground give us a good idea of the huge dimensions. Fine effect of the reflections in the river. Great work:) TFS. Have a nice evening.
Best regards, Erling

Stunning scene. The buildings are magnificent along the riverfront and the light reflected back is beautiful. The little boat in the foreground gives me a great sense of scale to those massive buildings. Wonderful shot.
ACL1978 (7511) 2013-01-12 21:46
Just came across this in the Random Photos box on your page, Krzysztof, and couldn't resist despite it being an older shot. The light you've captured here is really extraordinary; this is a perfect shot of a city at night, with the band of bright light at surface and the skyscrapers glowing above. The almost chocolate sky forms a perfect backdrop that helps outline the buildings; a cloudless night wouldn't have had the same effect. And then finally you have the water, reflecting all of these lights, setting apart the little patrol boat leading us into the scene. Really nice work.

Another great shot by you.. You took this photo maintaining a good composition with this sky scrapers and the river.. Love your excellent light management in this atmosphere.. Also superb image quality.. Like the perspective too.. Very well done..
Good morning from Kolkata and wish you all the best..
abmdsudi (52393) 2013-08-28 17:39
This is a good night urban shot and is, as it should be, nice and sharp that you get the exposure right, of a pure architectural record very much like the repeating patterns of those highrise modern buildings. Amazing composition and those glowing colours are tremendous make this stand out with a nice touch of moving boat into the frame. A fine effort in making this I find enchanting, Congrats
serp2000 (43586) 2013-10-14 6:51
Excellent night shot! Perfect sharpness, attractive colors.
When I see your photos from Chicago, I'd like to say this city reminds me NYC. The same architecture style, similar cityscape with the numerouse skyscrapers... And Seattle looks same. And Phoenix does not like a NYC, for example. ))
Best wishes from cool Ural,

Well, the weather may not have been in your favor, but I like what the cloudy skies have done for this shot. The reddish tones from the artificial city lights have illuminated the clouds just enough to provide a wonderfully mysterious mood over this scene.
With a Gotham-like cityscape, the rainy atmosphere lends a vibe of a dark and covert type of night....makes me wonder just what exactly is that boat up to at this hour?? haha I always find it difficult to get the proper exposure for night shots, but this looks crisp and clean, well balanced. You're right too, pretty much anywhere along the river makes for a great view of the metropolis skyscrapers.
Have a great day ahead. Get those bags packed. :)
Cheers from Az.,
