My favorite is #2... I am sad that you missed my favorite St. Loius building, the Gotham City styled building right off the overpass through downtown.

I liked #3. Simple, well composed and not something you see everyday. All the others look like shots of any other city ;)

Nice set of pictures.

I like "#3 Arch from Below" especially for its architecture and nice capture. It must be impressive being close to it.

#1 Gateway Arch at Night:
The only thing I wonder about is if the horizon should have been corrected but I'm not familiar with the terrain there.

#2 Downtown Saint Louis:
It's cool that the moon has texture to it. On the left hand side I probably would have cut away the red hotel neon sign or had shown it completely. My mind wants to know which hotel that is.

regards,
HTG

Done in photoshop, layer blended in lighten mode. Is it that obvious? I took the picture of the moon from the same spot, but it was higher up and couldn't get it in the frame. :D

No, it is not obvious at all, The photo looks great.

From my understanding you can't get both the scene and moon in focus with one shot, as you did here.

I went into your gallery and noticed you have a 5 sec exposure. The moon would have been blown up.

I only ask how it's done because I'm not very good with computer. I use picasa wich makes it easy for me. Very basic.

Nice gallery btw.
