Beautiful buildings and photo! Sure looks like one nice city to visit and take pics of!

If you ever go to Chicago do take the river cruise, it's really excellent

It is! And it was nice to live there too, except in the winter.

Berenice is right. A visit to Chicago should include a boat tour -- preferably the one put on by the Chicago Architectural Foundation.

Chicago is one of my favorite cities for photography as well. We go there every few months for family visits, so here are a few of my shots collected over the years:

Fuzz, those photos of Chicago are simply fantastic! I love them all, but the ones where you used selective coloring are really nicely done!

Fantastic shots, hydrogen. Question: what lens are you using? Any perspective correction?

They were taken with the Canon 17-40 f/4 L. And, yeah, I did apply PC to some of them (first and last).
