Wavy Aqua Blue

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
BetterPhoto.com Photo of the Day  
Wavy Aqua Blue
Wavy Aqua Blue
This image is an isolated capture of the Aqua Building in the Loop area of Chicago. "Aqua" comes off more as a massive sculpture than an 87-story residential block in the crowded heart of the city.

Fantastic capture, Michael; on my last Chicago visit, this building was nearing completion. Looks better than I expected, seeing it complete! The underside balcony lighting is great.
