CHICAGO (CBS) — We are proud to show you Chicago like you have never seen it before.

On Friday at Borders in Lincoln Park, CBS 2 and Pediment Publishing released “Capture My Chicago 2010″–a collection of amazing photography by local photographers.

And it’s now available for your holiday gift-giving!

The book was created from over 50,000 photos submitted to the website, capturemychicago.com. Participants helped shape the book by voting on the photographs they thought were the best.

And this being Chicago, we voted early and often–over 2.4 million times actually.

The result is a 160-page, high-quality coffee table book showcasing the very best of Chicago.

The cover shot, a stunning black-and-white shot of “The Bean”–was taken the Kenneth Steele. The grand prize–which goes to the highest scoring photo in the contest–went to Critter Rettirc for his brilliant shot of fireworks over the Chicago River.

The book is now available for purchase in time for holiday gift-giving. You can pick on up at Borders, Barnes & Noble and Books A Million.

Or make it easy on yourself and go to capturemychicago.com to order online. The book will arrive in time for Christmas.
