    If you go to the Adler Planetarium, you'll get a shot like this.

    Here's a story. Years and years ago, i was doing digital as well as film and was pretty advanced in maniputation.
    Some time later I saw an image online that showed the Skyline sticking up from some trees, supposedly from Jackson Park. For about a year and a half, I wandered all over the south lakefront and looking for the spot. I eventually gave up and one day my friend and I were crossing the railroad tracks on Roosevelt and there was the aspect for the Skyline I was looking for...I had been duped by Photoshop!!
