Thanks everyone, for your kind comments. I'm glad you like it!! I certainly did have fun during my layover in Chicago, and am always surprised, in this paranoid age we live in, that no one seems to mind or hassle me about taking a number of photos there...

Thank you SO much for your kind words everyone - I'm in a state of TOTAL shock, and can't stop smiling!! :-)))) After a summer with heavy family commitments and almost NO time for my photography, I took a series of fun photos at the Chicago airport on my way back to California. This was my favorite of the bunch, but I certainly never dreamed it would end up here! Thanks BetterPhoto - I am truly honored.

I know this is rather late, but what a FANTASTIC photo! The repeating shape of the windows, the silhouettes & the bright colours, all make it simply stunning. Not surprised that it was the Grand Prize winner.
