That's a cool shot. Nice dramatic lighting. I like it a lot.

the first shot is great but it seem the pillars are a bit blown.

Great pics. If I may, how does one go about getting clearance to shoot the Alamo in private?

First is very nice, but needs a bit of straightening IMO:
I used PSs Filter > Distort > Lens Filter.
Distortion +5
Vignette -60
Midpoint +40
Vertical Perspective -15
angle 0,5
Then I cropped, and applied USM 15%; radius 150; Th 0 to a layer with blend mode 'darken' to give the shadows (specificly those in the top right needed it (and a bit more)) a bit more 'punch':
Off course, more can be done with the original...

I see the improvement Rene...but for some reason I like the original better. Cool shot! Who knew you were a cutie-pie cowboy Chris?

Thanks Photodawg,

I'm a really cutie pie when I can hide under a hat and there are a bunch of shadows! I'm not much of a "cowboy" compared to most. It is very rare that I will wear the hat, maybe once per year. I did enjoy country music and "all things Texas".

Thanks Rene, I'd like to see both on my monitor to better grasp the changes.

I like the composition of the Alamo pic...Off hours, like 2:30am are sort of like the 5AM streets of Manhattan, a good time to shoot performances... The arts apparently are not a banker's hours type of job...
