Chicago Tidbits, Part 7, Flamed Horizons

Click on photo to enlarge

One evening we went to the top of the Hancock Building, one of the highest buildings in the US.
As I entered the elevator I thought “OK, I guess it will be a nice view over the city”.
I didn’t expect a flamed horizon with lights as far as I could see. It was absolutely marvelous.
For me it was kind of unbelievable what men can achive.

The photo is a HDR and the computed result of approximately 10 images shot from the same angle with different shutter times. It was very difficult for me because I had no tripod. As a substitute for the tripod I used a big lightbox that I covered with my jacket.
