The Sun Sets Over Chicago

Earlier this summer I had the good fortune to spend a night with some great photographers in the city of Chicago. The clouds that had followed me into the city that day disappeared before the sun set. As a photographer you are a fickle sort of person. You want clouds at certain times of the day, and then you want them to leave at others. You always want some sort of clouds at sunset. They are the canvas on which the light will paint. Sometimes you don’t get what you want so you have to make the best of it. Here I used an HDR technique to shoot directly into the sun and get a cool result. You don’t need the detail of the buildings to know that this is Chicago. That is the beauty of shooting the skyline. I think that this shot was one that I liked, but would never have seen the light of day had it not been for the people walking in the sunlight. They bring a little perspective into the scene that really makes it for me.

2015 MiLBY’s Photo of the Year

This year I covered only four games for the Indianapolis Indians, but I was blessed with some great action to photograph. My image of Josh Bell getting an ice bath after a 13th inning walk off hit in his first triple A game was nominated for the photo of the year by Minor League Baseball. I don’t ask for a lot, but if you could vote for it here that would be great. I am up against some great photos so I will need all the votes that I can get.
