Looking South from the 95th Floor

Andie and I had another photowalk today, this time to the 95th floor observatory at the John Hancock building. It was a fairly clear day and evening, so while my goal was to practice with my long lens and create some architectural abstracts, it was hard not to get taken in by the grand cityscape below.
Thank you for your kind responses to my posted images. I'll be back to commenting later tomorrow.
@ukandie1 -- Not a lot of photos turned out, but a few were 'worthy.' Thanks for a fun afternoon/evening!

As far as the eye can see - your city makes most of ours look like country towns! Your long lens seems to be quite magic. :)

Stunning. You must have a heavy duty tri pod, to hold the camera and long lens still up that high. There had to be wind! Oh my!

Wow, stunning!

I knew this was your's before I even saw your name. You've really got the Night City Scape fine tuned to an art.
January 9th, 2018  
I like the lighting on those high buildings -- those reds and blues really stand out.
January 9th, 2018  
Amazing clarity
January 9th, 2018  
Fab photo - the gold of the road through the middle looks like a bolt of lightning.

Stunning streetscape.
January 9th, 2018  
Stunning capture!! it must feel amazing being able to be there and having the opportunity to take such a wicked capture
January 9th, 2018  
Wow Taffy, it crossed my mind that you had carefully coloured in blocks to create this scene. It really is a magnificent sight. The way the lights along the streets go way back to converge in the distance give a real sense of scale of the city. But then, the detail of the cars lined up on the street as well. So love this shot.

Great comp, I spent too much time trying to make Michigan Ave my center of attraction, but you nailed it in this capture!
January 10th, 2018  
Amazing view

Incredible photo
January 10th, 2018  
Great shot- I really like the pops of color amongst all the silver and gold.
January 10th, 2018  
Such an impressive view. You can't imagine, from this shot, that you are in the middle of a frigid winter.
January 10th, 2018  
So muchdetail and color and shapes. Well done
January 10th, 2018  
Fantastic city scene!
January 10th, 2018  
My goodness! What a phenomenal view!! Always a treat to see the depth and color of your magnificent city shots.
January 10th, 2018  
Wow! Just stunning! Golds and blues go so well together.
January 10th, 2018  
So beautiful! We have the best city. Love the colored lights.
January 10th, 2018  
If I lived up there, I would call my house The Bird’s Nest! Such a viewpoint so high above the city, looking down on the colour, the shape, the movement of vehicles, people, lights. Like being perched at the top of the tree, master of all you survey. Lovely shot.
January 10th, 2018  
So much color in this, Taffy. Wonderful.
January 10th, 2018  
Fantastic long exposure - and so much color!
January 10th, 2018  
@deborah63 Thanks! Night photography is so much fun, but the main reason I started on it was working all day and not having time to get out until after dark! Who knew then it would become one of my preferences!
January 10th, 2018  
@adi314 Wow -- that was amazing!
January 10th, 2018  
Instant Fav
January 10th, 2018  
Fantastic shot, the city looks like it goes on forever
January 11th, 2018  
♥♥♥ beautiful ♥♥♥
January 13th, 2018  
When viewed on black, it comes fully alive with such wonderful focus and detail evident. Wonderful.
January 15th, 2018  
Wow, this is stunning, I love how the light trails lead you out of the city towards the horizon.
