Chicago Photo Tour -- July 10, 2011
by John D. Roach
Fullerton Lagoon -- Rowers
Our first visit was to the Lincoln Park Zoo. Here were some rowers at nearly high noon.
Chicago River North
Very early in the afternoon, we visited the Chicago River Walk area.
The image was shot from Olive Park west toward the skyline of Chicago along Lake Shore Drive. I used a tone mapped HDR processing of three differently exposed images to create the luminance we see here.
Chicago Spires at Dusk
Toward Sunset, I captured this image and found the contrasting spires of the high rises fascinating.
Chicago at Sunset
This image certainly reflects the beauty of the Chicago Skyline at the end of a blazing hot day!
