To think this is only slices of 3 Midwestern cities. If we were to throw in some Cincy, Indy, Milwaukee, Twin Cities etc......

My guess is most non-Americans would be confused, (many Americans as well!) The Midwest is the least-visited region of the country by international tourists. They have no idea what they are missing.

Very, very nice. Did you use a polarizing filter on these shots?

I didn't use any particular lens filter - but a lot of the photos are HDR (high dynamic range). Not all, but many.

Great I am considering go to study in St. Louis. St. Louis looks much better than I heard from my friends who said that it is the most dangerous city.
