Wow! Thank you guys so very much. I'm just amazed at the response I've getting to this photo! In answer to the 'where was this taken' question...it was taken from the West End Overlook. There's a small park there with what is, in my opinion, the best vantage point for catching the city skyline. I hope to add more city skylines to my portfolio...if I can ever manage to get myself out of DA BURGH! LOL Thanks again!

Wow! I used to live in downtown Pittsburgh and I've never seen their skyline captured so beautifully. I couldn't believe this was a capture of Pittsburgh:) No offense...but the city is a bit gloomy. You've done a great job bringing life to 'da burgh'!Wonderful colors and reflections, Chris.
