Getting a bit better at discovering the 'sky' technique; too bad I'm not a quick learner :-(, Still not satisfied.
I read a student paper once that said times were so violent in the 'Old West' that everybody shot somebody.. So, I suppose that this was where those who remained fixed their well used guns :-)
Once again, Thank you all for taking your time to view my artistic scribblings. Your comments and suggestions are not only deeply appriciated but valued highly.

Perhaps not a John Wayne picture, perhaps more Jimmy Stewart? George C. Scott?

Viewing your photography is like going to see a classic movie...pass the popcorn, 'cuz I'm in for a real treat. This is marvelous...love the line and form, and as I said about your last pic...the sky is phenomenal. Beautiful, exceptional work! VOTE

I like the POV on this image. As for the sky and being a 'slow learner', well if it makes you feel any better, I'm still trying to figure out numerous things within PhotoShop. Just eight days ago I decided to redo five weeks of work because I felt I did not have the right settings and colour combinations for a series of duo-tone images. This lead me to write in my journal 'Never stop questioning yourself!' So don't feel you have failed in any way. Your searching and it will take several more attempts to get it the way you feel comfortable with the end results. I therefore can only applaude your continued efforts and for now feel privelaged in seeing you mature as an artist.

amazing and dramatic clouded sky! impressive building and textures! there is a very dangerous atmosphere around, telling about the old times of a fast death! gorgeous work! ;o)

Yes these times were really violent (I've just finished watching at "gangs of NY", one hour ago...) I think your picture is perfect to illustrate this terrible atmosphere. Great work. (even if the sky is a bit "strange")
