    I did too, but there was a gusty breeze and each b&w pic was blurry from my tripod moving. :rant2:

    Playing with the white balace should get rid of the orange tint. But I think it adds to some of those pics. You should've done the Texaco from some other angles, too. That's just me though. :hs:

    There was a truck parked to one side, dammit, and I couldn't get proper pics.

    There's always tonight! I'll try about 9pm to catch some sky in them.

    Plus (Dammit' I'm a dumbass) I had my car parked out of shot, with the parklights on. Maybe I'll try it with the taillights pointed at the Texaco tonight...different color might accent the building.

    use the top bulb one


    or just correct it in PS, and theres a lot of ways to do it. I usually use photo filters under image adjustments, and use a blue or cooling filter to create neutral colors

    Edit: I'm a dumbass.


    I used my car for a tripod, forgot it at home.

    DSC02803.jpg is the best in that batch IMO.

    That building would probably look better with a fullmoon or possibly right before sundown. Its just too dark. Great subject though.

    I was chatting with a friend and realized it was getting too dark.
