    Thanks to all for comments and votes. Greatly appreciated. Buckingham Fountain is a treasure in Grant Park and there are nightly color and music performances.

    While lovely my aversion to milky water shots leaves this one out of my top ten. I do think it is just a tad too light and adding contrast or some other work in pp could make this one pop a lot more. It is an excellent canvass to work on.

    Great choice of shutter speed, it works perfectly. One would almost think there is a fire inside the base.

    Normally I'm not a fan of milky water, but at night it's absolutely beautiful. Great exposure and colour.

    Very beautiful. I love the colors and all the contrasts, soft vs hard, flowing vs rigid, light vs dark, My only comment is that the framing feels tight at the top and bottom.

    there is some movement in the main spout which makes it more interesting

    very dramatic - excellent exposure and color. Crop might be a tad tight top and bottom.

    The only improvement I can think of is if you could pull back a bit and get the fountain off center. Still a gorgeous image, very high on my TT.

    Looks like Buckingham fountain.. like this photo it's my #2.. Blue Black sky sharp focus on skyline and colorful water make this a very nice photo.
