Not My Chicago by Genesis-Orbit Not My Chicago by Genesis-Orbit
Not my Chicago. It is Chicago, but this one doesn't really belong to anyone. It has a ride from cedar point in it, and 2 huge planets in the background. Also it appears to have some aquatic feel to it. Interesting!

Pt. 2 to my advanced photography project.

Thats not in cedar point ride is it? They have that same ride at Six Flags Great America, in Gurnee IL. I would know, because I live in Gurnee. Gurnee is a suburb of Chicago.

Oh yeah those are like the 2 major theme parks I go to, I've been to great America a ton of times, but yeah, this indeed isn't vertical velocity, it's the wicked twister if I'm not mistaken. They got the same ride lol.

I just was on V2 on Sunday! they stopped with pausing it on the 2nd run... Unless you never experienced the pause, which was the best part, but since removed it.

Haha, this was actually the cedar point version of the ride! But I've been on both, they're both pretty identical as far as I know. And I don't think I've ever experienced the pause :c

The pause is what made that ride really awesome, is still great in my books, but not as it once was.

This is very beatiful. It feels so surreal! I love the light focused on one side fading into darkness... That also gives it a very surreal feel to it. Very cool angle and setup!!

Can't believe I missed this when you posted it!

The shot is really brilliant, man. Everything comes together very well. The render's good, the perspective is brilliant, the lighting is wonderful... I honestly think this is one of my favorite things I've seen you do. Great stuff.

It IS my Chicago. D':

I think it could do without the rollercoaster bits, but either way it looks badass. I love it. And I love Chicago...if only I could go there more often. Dx

I love how you fixed the structure of the ride in the background. It'd be really realistic, but the planets give it a really cool futuristic look.
