The brightest lights on the darkest nights

I've spent the last 6 months or some honing my night photography skills as well since we had a horribly long winter in Canada with short days. Night photography was not something foreign to me, but in the last few months I had been doing a lot more long exposure night photography instead of... well not long exposure! This new "artistic" direction inspired me to start a separate online portfolio using Format to showcase this work.

I took advantage of an opportunity to go to Chicago for the first time last month. I spent the weekend there with a couple old co-workers of mine. I was able to occasionally escape from "friend duties" and get some pretty incredible photos while I was there. I checked out the two observation decks in the Willis Tower and from the John Hancock Building which offered some pretty incredible views!

Wonderful photos, Tudor. I like the cool blue and the orange that makes the streets look like they are on fire. Beautiful work! :) Maggie

These are most enjoyable night photographs. Thanks for sharing!

So wonderfully moody and grand! This is far beyond Batman and Robin territory.

I feel this sets the stage for a new edition of Ghostbusters. I can imagine the ghosts having g a convention high above the City of Chicago!

Good job!
