I like it a lot, Maria! The sense of motion captured really enhances the skyline of this hustling-bustling city and adds to it's sense of excitement. Sometimes a "mistake" turns out to be the right touch afterall! #8985182

Maria- A sight that is not seen around this area. Perhaps down south it would be. Have been to Chicago a few times way back when, and your so right about how awesome the skyline is and I only wish I had been into photography at the time to so I could have gorgeous pictures like this one. Love the reflections, the design work of the buildings, and even your boats add to the beauty. Gorgeous work dear friend.
Have a most wonderful day. #8985334
