    Fabulous capture of the Chicago Library and surround buildings, Leslie! The lighting is just exquisite and the detail, clarity and colors are marvelous. It is so interesting to see and compare yours and Ellen's shots - similar scene yet such different interpretations. That's what I love about photography.

A terrific POV, as usual. You captured that urban texture (decades of city grime that becomes a color of its own on downtown buildings.) The Lighting is the icing on the cake! Congratulations on a wonderful win.
