In a small way it kind of looks like the surface of the sun! Great shot!

A visitor from France posted Sun October 9, 2011:
Anyone thinking of Tron: Legacy? The blurred lights look like the illuminated lights and lines of the Grid.

A visitor from United States posted Tue December 21, 2010:
Excellent photograph. I recently took off during the evening on a 757 from Chicago en route to Philly and it was one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen. I've seen plenty of cities from the air, but Chicago takes the cake thus far.

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 11, 2010:
This really is an amazing shot. Love it. Ron

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat October 9, 2010:
Very good! Seems like flying over plane surface with lights flashing...

A visitor from - posted Tue July 6, 2010:
As a photographer, this is brilliant! I can tell you are flying over Chicago at night. No blur on the wing! Nice motion blur on the city below!

A visitor from Philippines posted Fri September 4, 2009:
Its all about the light... I want to try this over LA.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu July 16, 2009:
Excellent... Thomas from Hamburg, Germany.

A visitor from Canada posted Tue June 9, 2009:
Very nice. I've got a few nearly identical view of the Chicago street grid from the 95th floor lounge of the Hancock Bldg (without the wing, obviously!), so I knew the location immediately. A fantastic view on a clear night from either vantage point!

A visitor from - posted Sat April 25, 2009:
It's like a fabric that has been woven together with golden string.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed March 4, 2009:
A great flightsim capture! ;)

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 23, 2008:
Oooooooh. 1 nautical mile, eh??

A visitor from India posted Thu September 11, 2008:
Ive landed in ORD many times, and I know these lines, but have never seen them like this!

A visitor from Finland posted Thu November 29, 2007:
Woah! This is honestly one the most original photos i've ever seen here. Truly great job!

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 26, 2007:
It almost looks like an exercise in geometry!

A visitor from Czech Republic posted Mon October 15, 2007:
One of the best night shots by far,the light looks incredible,strobe caught blinking...Clear 5* here!

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 8, 2007:
I love the contrast of the city lights against the dark wing,with it's strobe caught blinking.The clarity vs the blur,beautiful ! Congrat's Gabriel, a 5-star from me.

A visitor from United States posted Thu October 4, 2007:
An amazing pictue of an amazing city. Even more amazing is the clarity of the wing versus the lights in the background. Chicago is truly amazing. It would be a dream to live near ORD and see just about every kind of jet imaginable. Kudos on the shot!

A visitor from United States posted Tue October 2, 2007:
The grid of the lights as they blur by is amazing!

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 1, 2007:
One of the most unusual pictures on ANet - this shot truly captures the magic of flight!

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 1, 2007:
I must say since I usually don't comment...but this is a pretty awesome shot!! Looks like a plane flying over a lit up circuit board....Neat

A visitor from Serbia And Montenegro posted Mon October 1, 2007:
Great shot. Chicago looks cool. Exposure can make miracles.

A visitor from Spain posted Sun September 30, 2007:
It's only the best ever "wing nigth" shot !

A visitor from Denmark posted Sun September 30, 2007:
Looks like a scene from Tron! Amazing.

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 30, 2007:
Interesting picture. You can easily identify that this is Chicago because of the cool grid structure.

A visitor from - posted Sun September 30, 2007:
i have no idea ho you took this photo but it is great it has to be one of the best night time ever great job hope to see more pic like this thanks

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 30, 2007:
Looks like the surface of the sun. nice exposure.

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 30, 2007:
Thats an amazing photo! The dark yet crisp wing traveling quickly.

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 30, 2007:
From an artistic point of view this could be a top three or five on A-Net. Great, and I really mean...Great Job.
