Patrick Sulivans Steakhouse and Saloon (history below)

Patrick Sullivan, a young Irishman, set out to make his fortune in America by opening a saloon near the busy Southern Railway depot in Knoxville. His first saloon was a wooden shack located in the heart of the present day “Old City.” The business flourished, and in 1888 Sullivan began construction on a new three-story Victorian red brick saloon (the current structure) at the corner of Central and Jackson Avenue.

One of Patrick Sullivan’s patrons was “Kid Curry”- famous gunman of Butch Cassidy’s gang. Following a game of pool in Patrick Sullivan’s Saloon, a fight broke out between Curry and a local patron. Two deputies were shot by Kid Curry while trying to break up the brawl. Curry escaped on foot, but was captured in Jefferson County and returned to the Knoxville Jail. While in jail, over 5,000 Knoxvillians (mostly women) visited Kid Curry. He entertained his guests with colorful stories and signed autographs. The “Wild West Villain” became a local celebrity, despite his wicked deeds. The night before his trial, he mysteriously broke out of jail and escaped across the Gay Street Bridge to freedom, riding the sheriff’s horse. The method of escape could not be explained, but rumor has it that $1,000 mysteriously made its way into the sheriff’s bank account.

Ok , here comes first post -)) #1 & #2 dont wok for me at all , the building in #3 would look more interesting / detailed if you would have come closer to the building and shoot it with wide angle lens. P.S watch the halo around the roof of that building.


My gear: Canon 5D Mark II , Canon 70-200 /2.8L IS, Canon 16-35 /2.8L II , Canon 100 /2.8 , Lee NDG filters, Manfrotto 055XPROB , Canon Speedlite 580 EX II

HMmm unfortunately they do not work for me either. The processing is ok. The halo is distracting on the third one There are too many distracting elements. The second photo has a puddle. Might be interesting to see the reflections brought into the photo.

I would back off a little on the processing, but that's just me.
#1-I think could have been better with a differnt angle, I don't see that the right side contributes anything.
#2-Kind of like it but I agree that puddle has real potential.
#3-I would have chosen a tighter crop on the building.


It's a lens not a lense!
The truest test of character is what you do when you think no one is looking.
