Yes! Let's just ignore the fact that the buildings are HUGE given the range. Gee, no sign of atmospheric lensing there at all. You stick a photo taken at point blank range right next to an image taken at dozens of miles and think nothing of the fact that they're roughly the same size
The background of the photo is even RED...gee is sunlight red? What caused that...genius?
Oh sorry, is that too many things for you to consider at once? Just say "grabity" then bro. lol
...and I agree that it is visible, but only the part of the buildings taller than 600' in height.
Also, the scale of the two pics of Willis Tower are the same scale. That's what the horizontal red lines I added between the steps on the building where it gets narrower are for. To show that the scale is correct. Ie: nothing is stretched due to atmospheric lensing.
...and you still haven't addressed why there are no buildings visible between the red arrows. There are several buildings in that area of town, yet none appear above the waters surface.
I must add that it is a truly wonderful pic you posted and I thank you again for doing so. You may dismiss it, but everyone else reading can easily see that the lower part of Willis Tower is hidden from view by the horizon and therefor proves that the Earth curves away from the viewer.
