Photographer's Note

Three of the tallest buildings in Chicago (and the world)

Left to right: 331 S. Wacker, AT&T and Sears Tower (back).

Taken with optical and digital zoom at full extension (10x equivalent to 380 mm and 3x respectively). You can almost see what's going on inside the offices at Sears which is like two miles away!

To view a panorama of downtown Chicago and put these buildings into perspective, please see my earlier night shot posting taken at the same night and from the same place. This panorama is what you see from the observation deck of the John Hancock Tower. The detailed picture above illustrates how powerful the zoom feature of the Olympus is.

I can't seem to reduce the background noise. There is also some purple fringing (in some white lights) that I did try to reduce but was not that successful. Workshop, anyone?
