Daily Photo – Chicago Forever

I took this from on top of one of the highest buildings in Chicago. Everyone else was shooting in the other direction – towards all the big buildings. Well, I did too to be honest… but, then I came over here… looking out this way was strangely compelling, so I decided to give it a go! :)

    Super shot! This shows it’s always good to look the other way!

  • Ben

    Wow … that is stunning, the feel of disparaging into infinity is really captivating.

  • Patrick

    Looks like the inspiration for Tron!

  • susan

    Super cool shot Trey!

  • Gail Moshier

    I agree with all of the above comments, Trey. Great photo of Chicago. Wonder if I can see my niece at work there, lol. Thanks so much for sharing, have a great day :-)

  • Julie Willson

    Beautiful shot of a beautiful city. I love the glowing lines and contrast. Which building is this? Are you brave enough to shoot from the glass cube at the top of the SEARS Tower. Yea, I know it’s the Willis Tower or something like that but only Willis cares.

    its really a great creation….. colour contrast is really awesome…!!

  • t.linn

    That’s an awesome shot, Trey! Very nice.

    @Julie…LOL. Yes, it will always be the Sears Tower to me too.

  • Chris Combe

    As always beautiful.. stunning colours and mood, some how cold but warm..

    I struggle with making night time HDR shots, obviously the shots are much longer exposure but I generally feel my exposures end up looking quite similar and the long exposure shots all look really good by themselves.. I would love to see your approach to this Trey.. perhaps a sneaky tutorial video for long exposure HDR? :)

    happy thanks giving

  • Ricardo

    I been dying to HDR chicago…

    i miss home! great job trey!

  • Trey Ratcliff

    Thanks again everyone.

    Chris – yes they are a special breed… I’ve made a lot of mistakes along the way! :)

    Whenever I am on top of this recently renamed tower ;), it never ceases to amaze me how flat the rest of the town is. The only flatter place I have seen was Salt Lake City from top of LDS headquarters. You can see the streets extending for miles, in the regular grid (not something often seen in Europe). Beautiful image, thanks for sharing it.

  • Scott

    Looks like the surface of a Borg Cube … just change the street-level light from orange to green!

  • iWantnext

    I think I have never said this to any of your photos before, but I love the title for this one :-D

    Of course, I like the pic too (and mostly, I like your titles too), but on this one it is so fitting and gives the picture an added “thriller-effect”.

  • Noah J. Katz

    I love this shot Trey! I think because I was born in Chicago I have a strong connection to the city even though I never could see myself living there. I do love visiting family and checking out downtown. I’ve seen this sort of ‘shot’ while doing night landings into both Midway and Ohare.

    What building were you in for this shot?

  • Mark Sinderson

    Hey, I think I see our old house way off in the distance :-) Great shot, the lights trailing off into the distance really goes great with the title. Which building was this taken from?

  • Anthony Salmon

    Great shot Trey, very clever, this must have taken time.

    Just heard your blog about advertising. Very thought provoking and I agree this is the wave of the present as well as the future. Whenever I look for anything my first action is to do a google search. Since I “discovered” your Blog I have branched out to others based on your content.e.g. D-Town some of which I learned about from following your hangouts. I recently got the tutorial and joined the clubhouse, another great source of inspiration and education. I’ll close with the caveat… I only found out about HDR and your blog from the article in Popular Photography, not from the AD.

  • Jeannine Doran

    Fantastic…I just dont understand how to get shots like this without a tripod..It is so sharp.Beautiful
