Belly of the Bean

Belly of the Bean

Normally I try to avoid crowds in my photos, but this shot needs them to show the distortion and the play on space that the underbelly of The Bean sculpture provides. One of my reflections is in the centre of the shot just below one of the curves.

Taken in Chicago a few months ago (along with previous photos).

Rotate, crop, sharpen, levels/curves & shadow/highlight.
