Chicago Skyline amidst the snow

Here's fisheye view of almost the entire skyline of Chicago from S. Michigan Ave. up to Navy Pier taken right after a blizzard last year. The Sears Tower, the tallest building in North America (4th in the world) somehow looks like a dwarf on the left (about the third building with the antenna on the left immediately behind the tallest tree). The tallest among the bunch on the right of the photograph is the Aon building which is actually something like the 14th tallest building in the world.

These skyscrapers represent different styles of modern architecture. The skyscraper was invented and first built in Chicago during the late 1800s - all of 9 stories.

Not much post processing except cloning of dust bunnies.
