This is a picture of the famous Willis Tower in Chicago, the highest building in America.

I was looking for an original view of this subject, and found a spot next to this lamp post, which I used as a framing element and to emphasize the tower's height. I intentionally decided not to close the diaphragm too much, so the down part of the pole would be blurred a bit and increase the impression of distance.
I also wanted to give a "Gotham", comic book atmosphere to this image. I wanted to develop a "sketch" rendering so as to make the viewer wonder at what medium he is looking at.
