This is an image of the Energy Corridor on the west side of Houston, so-called because of the high concentration of oil and gas companies located here. I took a few shots of my after-work rat race, before driving-off into it. First shot is HDR, I think. Used a 3-stop for the first image and no filter for the second image. Both processed in Nik Color Efex. I'll tell you, that Nik package is a great set of tools and worth every cent.

C&C always welcome and hope you like 'em.

1) 10 mm-ISO 100-f - 22 -- Taken just at the sun set over the horizon

2) 10 mm-ISO 100-30.0 sec at f - 11 -- Taken about 25 minutes after sunset

Great images. Your thoughts on correcting the lens distortion, especially #1?

Good comment... I tried to tweak the distortion in Lightroom, but it looked even worse. I've got no idea. Maybe I should have tweaked it first, before going into Nik. Thanks,

Yes, correct before going into Nik and before doing any cropping (if you did). Don't know what software you're using, but Photoshop C6 has a terrific "adaptive wide angle" filter for making these kinds of corrections.
