Thanks very much for your congratulations, likes, and YSs Tery, Laurel, Borza Dragos, MuhSaPo, Christos Theodorou, nedime, soil sister, peter, ismail, kanane, haggs, S&C, FWWS, and gabi! And of course thanks to everyone who voted for this little hand-held night shot!

And Thank you also Alexandru! The amusing thing is that I posted this shot to my 'overflow' page here, and entered it in the 'Human Constructions' category. But I posted the shot I thought was more unique on my main page, and entered that one under 'Skylines'. So Human Constructions won out, and pointed out that we aren't always correct in the photos we think are better photos compared to what others think!

Thanks so much for your nice message Kevin! I really lucked out with the afternoon I had to spend in Chicago - springlike temps in January, and clear blue skies, plus the only chance I had to get by Millenium Park before flying home just happened to be at 'blue hour'. So there was a lot of last minute luck to get this. So glad I've had a chance to share this shot. Cheers!

Thanks very much Yuri and Sylviane!
