Looking Up on a Sunny Day

Andie @ukandie1 and I were able to go on another walking tour by the Chicago Architectural Foundation, this time to the Illinois Center Pedway and surrounding area. One spot was a hidden plaza situated among skyscrapers and some classic structures like the Wrigley Building.
Taken with a fisheye lens.
Check out Andie's -- same spot, different lens (and her stellar b&w processing!): https://365project.org/ukandie1/365/2018-02-27
Wonderful composition here! Almost a logo.

What a fun shot the fish eye makes...I was going to post earlier, but was dithering between a few shots. Now seeing this I know what I will post in the morning when I get back to my computer.
February 28th, 2018  
@ukandie1 Oh good -- I was about to link and saw you hadn't yet posted. The fisheye shots ended up being fun. A good change of pace.
February 28th, 2018  
@taffy I am going to go with a complimentary yet slightly abstract shot from the same local...will post in the morning!
February 28th, 2018  
@ukandie1 That will be fun!

I am normally not a fan of fisheye shots, but this works really well. Great pov and reflections !
February 28th, 2018  
Great POV and composition I like the lines on the sky scrapers leading the eye to th very top :) fav
February 28th, 2018  
Super shot, framing, leading lines
February 28th, 2018  
Great use of the fisheye!
February 28th, 2018  
I've gotta get one of those lenses. This is a fantastic shot, the unusual perspective concentrates my eye on the architectural variations. I love it.
February 28th, 2018  
The fish eye works well with the tall skyscrapers
February 28th, 2018  
Great fisheye shot.
February 28th, 2018  
Fabulous fisheye! Such fun! What a lovely sky too! Sounds like a great tour with so many photo opportunities! Jealous! Lol! Fav!
February 28th, 2018  
What a fabulous effect with the fisheye! Super capture.
February 28th, 2018  
A terrific viewpoint. @julzmaioro will like this - perhaps we should try it with wide angle lenses in the big smoke of Auckland?
February 28th, 2018  
Super shot , and framing !
February 28th, 2018  
Nice colour and POV. FAV
February 28th, 2018  
Oh wow, that's fabulous! I really must see if I can ask Santa for a fish eye lens, what a great view of the world.
February 28th, 2018  
Amazing view :)
February 28th, 2018  
That's just an amazing viewpoint and a wonderful shot with the fisheye :)
February 28th, 2018

February 28th, 2018  
This is Fab!
February 28th, 2018  
Love it :)
February 28th, 2018  
Like the half in light, half in shade
February 28th, 2018  
very cool
February 28th, 2018  
Just fabulous.
February 28th, 2018  
Great POV and effect. Do you have the lensbaby fisheye lens?
February 28th, 2018  
Awesome fisheye shot! Love the light and reflections. Fav.
February 28th, 2018  
Great fisheye! Just what Chicago is made for! Fav
February 28th, 2018  
Beautiful shot and I love your pov.
February 28th, 2018  
Wonderful use of the fisheye and it's framing of the Wrigley Bldg.
February 28th, 2018  
Just wow.
February 28th, 2018  
Fabulous image, great fisheye effect - fav
February 28th, 2018  
Love your architectural shots Taffy and this is amazing Fav
February 28th, 2018  
Great perspective, a super capture. Fav! 😀
February 28th, 2018  
Wow..
February 28th, 2018  
Such a striking image, fav
February 28th, 2018  
Fabulous effect
February 28th, 2018  
this is one that makes me go wow as soon as I see it, but then continue to enjoy it more as I study it. Those two tall buildings appear to be talking to each other, and there is a whole splendid audience beyond.
February 28th, 2018  
I like this very much!
February 28th, 2018  
Fantastic!
February 28th, 2018  
Great feeling of height. And you snuck in the flag.
February 28th, 2018  
A very impressive capture of your city
February 28th, 2018  
Incredible picture.

The fish eye makes this brilliant
March 1st, 2018  
It keeps me looking and looking and I totally agree with Helen Janes comment
March 1st, 2018  
This is wonderful! I so would love to have one of those lenses, but there's nothing here to "look up at"!
March 1st, 2018  
I love it! The reflections, the converging lines and the pocket of smaller, older buildings.
March 1st, 2018  
The fish-eye really brings this out. Great shot.
March 1st, 2018  
Wow awesome pov!
March 1st, 2018  
Awesome shot
March 1st, 2018  
So cool
March 2nd, 2018  
For some reason, this reminded me of a view of earth from space!
I agree with Dominica --Fabulous "logo" for Chicago!
