Beautiful birds and wonderful night captures in June, Mike. Rooftop Relaxation was a close second for my favorite and I am always in awe of perfect in-flight captures, but I have to go with this one as best for its eye-catching colors and sweeping lines. Hope it goes all the way. #7711206

Nikki McDonald level-classic 5/17/2011 6:30:41 PM

This one just came up in rotation in the winner's box on my monitor. I'd forgotten how much I love it -- just thought I'd tell you. The lines, colors and especially light are just fantastic. Have you ever printed this big on metallic paper? I'd have it done on mat board so I didn't have to put glass over it. Wow, would it have impact! #9409495

Michael Umbreit level-classic 5/21/2011 8:27:17 PM

Nikki - Thanks so much! I don't have this one printed but it did get published in a Capture My Chicago book. :-) Mike #9420942
