Thank you everybody! It was taken from the John Hancock tower, floor 96th. There is a lounge there and you can take pictures while you have some drinks :)

Yes, fantastic image - it's as though the city is sitting on embers, glowing.
Would you mind sharing how you took the photo - camera settings. And also if/ how much work you did on it afterwards.
I don't mean to take the magic out of your capture, I'd love to be able to shoot something like that myself one day.
Thanks, Kate

Kate,

Sure, I used a tripod, one of those really little ones standing on the floor of John Hancock Tower, floor 96.
f-stop: 3.5, shutter speed 1 sec. ISO 100. Focal Length 28 mm.

Post processing included levels, shadows and highlights and curves. Also a little of the lens distortion filter and finally crop. Mmmm, I think that's pretty much it.
Hope it's useful to you.

Tali

Thanks, Tali. Definitely useful. I'm sure you if you gave a print of that to the barman in the lounge on the 96th floor you'd get drinks on the house all night!
Cheers, Kate

Stunning! Such a sense of ponderous immobility in an image that is at the same moment graceful and light. A wonderful paradox achieved with great aplomb. I am in awe!
