This may be my favorite shot of the Chicago skyline. My family and I were out on one of those river/lake tours and I was lucky enough to get a good spot along the side of the boat. Actually, about 10 minutes after taking this shot, a wave slapped against the hull and soaked me and my camera... fortunately, I yanked the battery out immediately after getting drenched! This shot was taken with my Nikon D90 + Tokina 11-16mm lens. This shot was edited with Photoshop CS5 using HDR Pro.
