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!

Bits i am truly glad you are a winner with this shot. i only hope you do get inspired to keep going no matter what. there is one big smile down under but i am sure there are/will be a few more a few miles to the east. just a stunning shot but in truth a stunning idea the ball. to the creator like mine top marks but great to see a mind as equal to capture the beauty of it. *Y in the old fashion way better than any like. steve :o)))))))
