D-278 Where the Heaven's meet the Earth

The daily shoot today is Make a photograph that emphasizes the horizon. It's your choice whether to place it on the third lines or to center it.

The horizon is the apparent line that separates earth from sky, the line that divides all visible directions into two categories: those that intersect the Earth's surface, and those that do not. At many locations, the true horizon is obscured by trees, buildings, mountains, etc., and the resulting intersection of earth and sky is called the visible horizon.

Where the heaven's meet the earth:

This is the Chicago Skyline As seen from across Lake Michigan from Indiana.
I like the colored version but after posting I converted to black and white and I like it better.

Wonderful images of the Chicago skyline.

I agree with you on the colour vs. black & white. In colour it seems like the skyline of the city is competing with the waves, in the b&w they compliment each other.

Beautiful works of art in this post! My favorite is the first - I like the colors.

I love that you included the definition of "horizon" in your post!

Absolutely beautiful! I like the B&W version of the skyline.
The clouds this time of year are to die for!

Lovely view of Chicago skyline. I have seen the Chicago skyline umpteen times and never once from the other shore ;)

Perfect rule of the thirds on the skyline shots.

A skyline of a great city. The waves provide the perfect contrast

the b/w is a strong favourite. the blackness of the water at the distant shore and the light on the skyskrapers really add focus to the horizon. I love the dramatic dark clouds at the top as well.
