    A few photos from St. Louis. They're not the best, but hopefully they're okay.

    Windows from a long-gone building, probably one of the Cupples Station warehouses.

    My pictures aren't so good at night.

    Powell Square. Once a warehouse. Plans are to convert it into some kind of interactive art center. I don't remember exactly.

    City Hospital. Now the Georgian Condominiums. Also a steeple in the picture.

    If you are in the area, you might want to check out the "new" cathedral (Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis) as well as Shaw's Garden (Missouri Botanical Gardens).

    I know you didn't ask for any C&C, and I don't mean to be rude, but most of these could benefit greatly from some straightening. Otherwise, some nice shots of the city.

    Yeah. Some of the street shots aren't the greatest, but we had to hurry across the intersection so we would be in time for the game. The shot of the Old Cathedral was through the window of our hotel. The East St. Louis, St. Mary of Victories, Next Church, and Brewery pictures were taken from the moving car.

    is that an effect on your camera? I think my sister's point and shoot does that.

    if I were you, I'd concentrate on using low ISO settings. Some of the night time shots are super noisy. I bet if you used lower ISO settings, you'd be happier... you'd also most likely be using a tripod, but that's the price you pay...

    This would be a great place to photograph. The structure & graffiti is cool. Nice shot.

    they don't look to good during the day either. I think your right arm may be longer than the left making it difficult for you hold something level.

    Eh. They're not my best shots. The Drury Inn and Courthouse (with the horse) shots were while walking quickly across the intersection. And some of the other shots (East St. Louis, the Brewery, the Church) were through the window of a moving car.

    Powell Square is about a quarter-mile away. The Wainwright building is about a half-mile away. City Hospital (Georgian Condominiums) is over a mile from the stadium, close to a mile-and-a-half.
