Downtown Chicago

Downtown Chicago - Dan Taylor Photography

I shot this a few years back while visiting Chicago on a business trip. Obviously there’s quite a bit of post work going on here, and if you look closely, you’ll see that I’ve outlined the buildings and set them back in as a second layer in front of a gradient sky, giving them a 3D look.

A quick walk through Downtown Chicago yielded this unique late afternoon lighting. The green contrast of the the Chicago River is presented, while the skyscraper shadows maintain the downtown “urban” feel.
