The location of Pritzker Pavillion in Chicago's Millennium Park features with the office buildings in the distance allow us to understand space and makes one realize ART as to being their so one can understand this makes me realize it without showing I was their etc.   Posted: 10/08/2019 17:45:21

Having once lived in Chicago, this image hits an emotional nerve in me and gives it good initial impact. Millennium Park was not there when I live there in the early 80's so it is fun to see something new superimposed on some buildings that I recognize. I feel that you have picked a good perspective to shoot from as you have captured how the sculpture interacts with the skyline. You were wise to use the Transform feature in Lightroom as it has done a great job of removing any perspective distortion that shots like this often have. My only suggestion is that I might have tried brightening the green grass a little bit and darkening the blue sky a little bit to help differentiate the buildings. On the other hand, what you show does a good job of giving me the feeling of being in Chicago on a cold winter day.   Posted: 10/14/2019 10:38:44

Hi Barbara, Intriguing image, the low down perspective creates an image with an abstract feel, I'm not sure what it represents, however it has been well captured .   Posted: 10/18/2019 05:33:16
