Wow...those are great shots! It's a good thing you got that shot of the upstairs lobby of the National!

I need to go around Idaho and shoot some theatres. There's one here in Nampa that's in the process of being restored. It doesn't have a sign, but has a nicely designed facade.

Sorry for the delayed response...I hadn't seen your post! I shoot with a Nikon D-80 and usually use manual settings and never use the flash. I usually just use PS for contrast or cropping. What kind of camera do you shoot with? Here are some more recent shots... http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2231/2...
