The Bean - Chicago, IL
Cloud Gate, also known as "The Bean" in Millennium Park, Chicago, IL.
The buildings in the background are really tall, it took a lot of tilting to get them upright. A tilt-shift lens would have been very helpful, I just wish they weren't so expensive. It also took a long time to get all the people out of this shot. It turns out this is a popular place to be just after sunset. I used 4 different brackets all processed with the same settings and the original source files to mask out the people, and even with all those photos I still had to do a little bit of cloning.
