    Thanks for the nice comments on this image. I have always been fascinated by the juxtaposition of these two buildings and this challenge gave me the incentive to try to capture the difference. To Bernie, I skewed the right side so the Wrigley Tower would be relatively straight. If I skewed the Trump Tower everything became truncated.

    I like the old and new depiction here. The blue background is very attractive. What is the light-colored glow along the left side of the newer tower? I'm a bit uncomfortable with the apparent lean to the right, but in my favs anyway. What aspect of the perspective did you skew? Just wondering...

    I rather like the perspective here, as it accentuates the sheert height of these buildings. A beautiful mixture of old and new construction. High in my faves.

    dramatic angle works nicely in this composition.

    Effective especially due to the blue windows reflecting in the older structure. However, I'm concerned that the pronounced tilt to the right hurts the image.

    Nice sharp image and I like your uncluttered composition.

    I tried one of these too, but after seeing yours I'm glad I rejected it. Well done.

    Nice contrast and minimization of extraneous elements.

    Great shot, perfect for the theme. I wish I had taken this!! One of my top picks.

    Striking photo, but are they really "opposite" or just "different"? And why is the light so different on the closer tower?

    This composition of "opposite" architectural styles definitely has impact and does attract your attention. Good and effective choice of subject for the theme challenge. One of my favorites.
