Chicago River from Michigan Ave, Chicago IL
Nini I spent the last four days in downtown Chicago for a conference and I managed to break away and shoot one sunset and blue hour. We were busy and it was cloudy and rainy most of the time so I didn’t do much photography. I really like to shoot up and down Wacker Ave between Michigan Ave and Wabash because the river bends between those two streets and so does the city around it. This shot is actually from the sidewalk on “Lower Michigan Ave.” The bridges offer great compositions right over the water but they also bounce as cars drive by so it can be a little tricky to get a sharp shot.
This is a single 30 second exposure processed in Lightroom 4. Check out my photo from Wabash last year here: http://smu.gs/159v1pa
Critiques are always welcome.
UPDATE: Thanks for your critiques! I think I tilted it a little too far to the right in cropping so I will fix that this evening and you can see if it worked. I did do some distortion/perspective adjustments in Lightroom but I don't like to push it too far. Maybe I'll post a before and after now that I now how to make collages in Photoshop.
