NBC Tower isn't residential. Doubt their going to blow it up lighting wise on set backs into someones living room. Hopefully though, the top floors, which are all mechanical, etc, will get some more. Even still, looking good

Needs way more lighting. I hope there's more to come. At least make it look like the dam renderings!

Say what you will about the merits of its design, this building, like the Chicago works of Lucien Lagrange, are popular:

But about six months after the tower’s 279 apartments opened, most are already occupied.

You can always find my shots on my Flickr photo stream, until they get the site fully up you will be able to easily find them by clicking on the meta-link of the title, and choosing which size to save

Chicago | One Bennett Park by Harry Carmichael, on Flickr

In this example Chicago | One Bennett Park is a link to the photo and Harry Carmichael is a link to my photo stream.

The color palette, lighting, the uncommon angle view, the subject... everything about this photo is great.

In the best way possible, there is something extremely "New York" about that image. I love it, so unique, and absolutely a never before seen angle of our current skyline

I thought the same thing. To me it's giving off strong Battery Park vibes.

The thing that makes these Chicago pics better and better over the years is the obvious fact that scores of new skyscrapers keep going up.

Had you taken this exact same pic in 2003, for example, it really would not have dazzled nearly as much. The light reflects most distinctly off of buildings that weren’t even around back then, not to mention the height that was added in recent years

That is an extremely rare combination of lighting. There is obviously open sky to the north and dark clouds/sky in the view south giving the reflective buildings the appearance they are lit up with a sunset. Which could never happen. Great and amazing capture HarryC.

The sun actually does set pretty far to the Northwest during the summer solstice. So the northern elevation of the skyline is lit up by the sunset in late June and early July.

Good point. That's just northern sky light, though. Not the sun. (oxymoron notwithstanding)
