Shot at Chicago's new and highly controversial Millenium Park. It just opened so either it's 4 years too late or 996 years too early!

    Wow, very impressive capture Ralph. Beautiful colour, detail and composition. What is the reflective surface (Bean)?

The reflective object on the left is indeed the Bean. It's actually called Cloud Gate and is a 110 ton sculpture that looks very much like a giant metallic jelly bean, hence the nickname. It offers some great photo ops. Thanks for the comments!
