A view facing northwest from inside the Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park. This is a great place to watch concerts, have a picnic, or just watch the skyline and stars through an amazing grid of criss-crossing, curved beams. I never get tired of this place. I think I was technically tresspassing here by taking this from the inside of the pavilion, which was roped off and closed. I managed to get away without getting busted.

Ditto all above.I like the inclusion of the grass in the foreground it is a great contrast to the other structures ad makes them al look a bit like they have sprung from the ground. Excellent shot.

Explosion is a good word here - I almost fell off my chair with this one. LOVE the contrast in texture with the grass, the crisscrossing bars and golden lights, the shock of cobalt. There's also a kind of tension between what is man made and of nature. You can almost reach out and touch the grass but for the fear of getting electrocuted! Amazing. You could have posted a pretty high bond for the price of this one.
