Indeed, everything is normal about that photo except the moon. The moon has been enlarged.

No more Chicago pics from me for a little while. But in truth, of late, Chicago has been a little underrepresented in this thread. It was time to post a few

Chicago is stunning... but would love to remind u guys that this is not an exclusive Chicago thread... for now, i must say Chicago is on the same par with current Toronto(this hogtown is climbing in my ranking)... just a little bit below than NY, HK, Shanghai and Dubai for my taste...

Did you read my post just above your post? If not, no worries my friend

As for NY -- the balance/symmetry is off imo. Too many spires clustered to one side of the city and not the other side. The giant middle finger over central park also seems out of place. Still, by sheer number of towers, it would be in my top 3.

As for Shanghai -- dominated by 3 towers clustered together - not much of a skyline to speak of after that. Still very impressive - possibly top 3, definitely top 5.

Dubai -- would not make my top 5 at all. Too contrived. Too artificial.

Toronto -- not enough supertalls but I do like the setting, beauty and overall look of that skyline. Top 5 neighborhood.

HK -- my current #1. Best balance of symmetry, beauty/setting and density.

Chicago -- somewhere around top 5. Big plus for symmetry, balance and beauty. Another big plus for being the first city to ever build a skyscraper and for having towers that date back to that era. Minus comes in where it needs a bit of a refresher - some new supertalls - one of which is being built from right now which will make a huge difference in refreshing the skyline. We also have a few stunning 800 plus footers being built right now that will continue to add to the renewal of the skyline.

- also, huge plus for having a river canyon that runs through downtown

- huge plus for having beaches that immediately surround the downtown area - takes 1 minute to walk from a skyscraper to the beach

I think it's time we stopped and looked back a bit.
