Chicago Rail Yard Skywalk

Roosevelt Road traverses a massive rail yard; seen from a spacewalk like perspective. This was taken from the Willis Tower, but this yard is on the near south side of Chicago.

I wanted to use the extreme height (and distance from the surface) of the Willis tower observation deck and combine it with the inversion to give the shot a space walk feel. Imagine if you are walking on the surface of the moon or the hull of a ship orbiting Earth; this would be the perspective. This is the first time I've ever experimented with this concept and still don't know what to make of it.
