We love the Alamo here is San Antonio but to really understand our history when you visit us then you must see the 24-minute show by French artist Xavier De Richemont, in which lights (set to music) projected onto onto the face of San Fernando Cathedral tell the story of San Antonio over 300 years from its beginning to today. Show times are 9, 9:30 and 10 p.m. on Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. This is the oldest Catholic Cathedral in continuous use in the US. Photos taken last Saturday evening.

NICE work indeed, great colours and detail. At 1/20th on a monopod  though I note you used VR..(?) and seemingly to good effect.. At one time the advice was to deselect VR when tripod mounted but I guess it may have value in terms of possible horizontal shakes when using a monopod...hmm, interesting.

Pretty amazing photos.

That's something I'd never have known about if you hadn't posted !

Colours are so rich. I think you picked a great point to set up - there's no obvious vertical distortion.

There's a bit of noise in the sky but thats easily fixed.

Bravo

Thank you for the feedback.  I noticed the sky noise but thought I could pass it off as ". . . the stars at night, are big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas . . . "   I need to clean that up a bit.

 

Please come visit us here in San Antonio one day.  Lots of Texas and Mexican history to photograph.

Definitely cool shots. I enjoyed looking at each one. For me the noise in the sky is distracting. If you sharpened make sure you masked the sky. Use the Luminance slider in LR to reduce. If these were mine I would spend a little time and brush in the sky, then use the noise slider to + and the sharpen slider to -.
