Too bad they didn't use a better photo of Omaha.  I also like how they photoshopped out all the signs (Clink, OWH, even Woodmen).

Its a nice angle though. I always believe stats are full of |expletive| anyway, but it feels good seeing nebraska get recognition.

The bridge piers are at a nice angle too... which is one thing that really bothers me about the photo.  It looks like its going to fall over...  Add that on top of the blow out highlights, I just thought Forbes would have done better...

Looks like a pretty old photo. The lights on CLC are blue still and the piers don't have the dirt and debris/waterline mark from the 2011 floods either.

I think its last year because besides the blue/purple on the Clink, you can also see the green so the strip had been changed but not the spot lights.

Well granted their specialty is economics and not photography...  :;):

Wrong.  They are a very large company, that is know around the world.  They should have an editor on staff, who's specialty photography.

If they don't already, or if theirs sucks, perhaps that editor could be you.  :yes:
