One of the many planters on Michigan Avenue, freshly planted with tulips for spring. Over the years, Chicago's mayor has done a great job beautifying so many parts of the city with planters and other landscaping. It was a bit worrisome when the huge concrete tubs were being poured on the medians on many of the city's thoroughfares. There was quite a bit of controversy at the time, in that there were people in the city who wondered aloud if the city's money could be better spent elsewhere. No one can complain, however, about how nice the flowers look.

Very nice Spring picture mike with an interesting contrast in the background of course! Hm, may I say that I feel you have given the flowers a wee bit too much saturation perhaps?

Great spring colors. Just what we have a lot here in Holland, as being the flower country.

Wonderful how the vertical elements of flora and steel compliment each other so well.

Amazing shot, the flowers are quite rich and inspite of shooting against light, you have managed to get a lot of details. I tried shooting India gate like this but the results are no where as impressive.
