  • Support as nominator --TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 19:11, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Comment. I have a feeling this is slightly tilted. Is it just an illusion? NauticaShades 00:05, 22 May 2010 (UTC)
  • You could compare it to others. See right.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 00:29, 22 May 2010 (UTC)
    • Doesn't immediately strike me as being tilted - the shoreline appears to bend away from the camera, which could perhaps make it look tilted? --jjron (talk) 09:55, 22 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Support the colours make it more interesting visually than the others below. Great use of natural and artificial light. Casliber (talk · contribs) 00:42, 22 May 2010 (UTC)
  • FYI, you guys at FP probably see this skyline shot a couple of times a year as new buildings are built. I think you can see differences in the skylines below architecturally.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 00:36, 22 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Should I nominate the other commons FP now. I was going to wait until one of my current noms finishes since I have two others.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 00:59, 22 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Support --Alchemist-hp (talk) 12:01, 22 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Support Chicago_sunrise_1.jpg, delist Chicago_Skyline_Hi-Res.jpg, replace with Chicago.jpg. As with Tower Bridge, I feel we should have two FPs: one that's more aesthetically pleasing (preferably when the sky is changing, namely at sunrise or sunset), and one that's at a higher resolution with more detail (when the sky is contant, like midday or night). -- King of ♠ 23:29, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Support very good nom, on the topic above of the slant, I think it's just an optical illusion. Cat-five - talk 02:55, 24 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Support per nom, without prejudice to any of the existing FPs of this same subject. I particularly like the water reflection in this image. Spikebrennan (talk) 16:27, 24 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Support One of the better city panoramas that I've seen -- mcshadypl TC 06:18, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Support Very nice. --Avenue (talk) 08:53, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Support, for-the-record-support. I can only recommend watching a sunrise at the lakefront in Chicago. Totally worth getting up at 5am! --Dschwen 13:51, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Support wow! --TheMandarin (talk) 16:16, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Promoted File:Chicago sunrise 1.jpg. No consensus to replace other FP, so it's just going to be promoted alongside it. NauticaShades 09:00, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
