lol. I was actually going to post this same thing...

I am also looking for a high res picture of the chicago skyline that includes the new buildings such as trump and stuff. Most of them don't.

How about this?

I used to make the drive from Ann Arbor to Chicago all the time. I don't know exactly where it is, but at one point, I-94 curves north, and suddenly, the entire Chicago skyline opens up in front of you. In the evening, with all the lights on, it's one of the most breathtaking vision you'll ever see!

If you want to find some good ones google (Chicago HDR images) http://images.google.com/images?client=safari&rls=en&q=chicago%20HDR%20images&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi You will find some really neat night pictures of the skyline. Here's one that I used as a desktop a few months ago.

This so hard. Anytime driving east from Minneapolis I'd have to go through Chicago and without a doubt it is is the best city to drive through at night, so beautiful.

Thanks so much for the post. I have never herd of HDR until now. I just got done setting up a date with my cousin (who is a photographer) to go downtown this comming week so I can get some shots and try this. The HDR process seems a little complicated for someone that has 0 knowledge of photography, photoshop or photomatix but with the few tutorials i found im going to give it a shot! Thanks again.

I know this is not High Def, I took it with my iPhone a few months ago back when we still had some leaves on the trees. This picture was taken as the sun was setting from the Diversey Harbor just south of the Driving Range and the Put-Put corse. I wonder if Donald Trump has any idea just how reflective his new building is. The second picture I took from the Brown Line in between the Sedgwick and Armatige stations on my way home from work about a month ago or so. The last picture I took from my doctors office at Northwestern Memorial Hospital about a year ago. All pictures were taken on my iPhone.
