Great architecture shots Bob. I also love that deep blue sky. Pretty cool they are still using that church. I hope they added A/C!

Nice, Bob - the third one of the dome is a knockout.

Thanks Barry, good question about the AC, it does get a bit hot down here in Southern Arizona. Bob

Nice architecture shots, though I'm not a fan of polarized sky.

thanks Kyle, I did not use a polarizer for these shots. That is the way they came out when I ran the photos through Corel X3. Bob

Very nice images Bob, thanks for showing us. Through your travels we get to see a lot of the U.S.A. that we will never see in person.

You know, I got to thinking about that, the open area where these photos were taken, is a pink colored sand, I wonder if that can reflect onto the sensor and cause the pinkish color on the mission? Has anyone had any experience such as this, thanks Bob
