Sorry I got back to you so late. It is a large sculpture used as a passageway. It's located near Chicago's lakefront, close to the Lincoln Par Zoo. I hope this helps. Take care.

Fantastic composition. The clouds really add to the drama. Good decision to render in black and white.

A great shot! Well done!

Behind The Lens

Location
Chicago's lakefront near the Lincoln Park zoo.
Time
It was taken about 10:45 am.
Lighting
It was a partially sunny day. The shiny metal surface actually played into the lighting situation quite well.
Equipment
On this day I used a Fuji HS20 with a sky light filter. Nothing else.
Inspiration
The imaginative design, sculpting & metal finish all worked together. I visualized it in B&W & thought it would look fantastic without the distraction of color.
Editing
Yes. I reduced JPEG artifacts, increased contrast & made adjustments to exposure. I also sharpened the image a bit.
In my camera bag
I carry a Fuji X-S1 with a skylight filter, ND filter, polarizing filter, tripod, remote shutter release & extra battery.
Feedback
If you find something interesting to shoot don't pass it up because of poor lighting or lighting that might appear too harsh. Instead use that lighting to your advantage. Approach the shot with new vision as to how the end result will look. In this case the late morning light worked well with the curves & metal.
