Chicago at night captures the cityscape with clear skies punctuated by high-rise buildings and towers that stand tall in their magnificence.
A combination of wondrous lighting and striking contrast makes this image rare. The illuminated spirals of the towers, coupled with the glassy appearance of the buildings, lend t a unique brilliance. The mirror-like water body that rests alongside the buildings lends an undertone effect that heightens the lighting display and makes the image lingering. The dim reflection of lights on the water almost seems like a figment of imagination than an actual photograph.
Chicago, Illinois USA Cityscape
However, it's not the lights, sky, or water but the unique interplay of building patterns that take the breath away. A random assortment of steel, glass, and terracotta-coated buildings studded with brilliant lights offer a pristine appearance. Thus, it may be rightfully said that this image is the city's best shot.
