Zoomed in view of the bean

I'm not really sure what is meant for today's challenge "from a distance" and assume we are supposed to capture an object from a great distance away.

The Cloud Gate sculpture, usually called "the Bean" is 500 meters away (direct line) from where I am on the 23rd floor of our hotel.

It is a unique perspective to see the Bean from above, usually you stand next to it or under it. I'm very pleased with the degree of detail in the reflection zoomed at almost 200mm and from a distance of 500 meters. I just love the new lens.

I love #1 and it is also not an image that I have seen or have not seen much of .

Thanks Russell - I was glad it turned out through the glass of the hotel window, sometimes there's reflection issues or the window is too dirty

Love the capture because it is so different from most. As you said most captures of the Bean is within a few steps under or next to it. Nice contrasting capture.
