An ambitious and beautiful print of Milwaukee [gmap] by J.J. Stoner. One of Stoner's better prints and shows his fluency with the medium, when he feels up to it.

I love the foreground detail and relatively smooth transition to less detail as it regresses. That must've been incredibly hard to do, and you don't see a lot of his peers even attempting it.
