    I made the drive on Robinson going north into downtown the other day and this view of downtown will soon be one of the best. It actually makes since to me now why the CHK arena new entry faces the direction that it does.

    BTW, this pic doesn't really show how great that the skyline looked as I was going north all along Robinson ave.

    If you will remember, the drive north on Robinson was featured at the end of Kevin Durant's Nike commercial.

    It will be much better but I took the pic that day because the clouds and lighting gave a nice background to an otherwise bright blue boring day.

    I meant nothing negative in regards to that picture or you the photographer. I was trying to describe that the view along Robinson driving north should be seen live to really capture the visual of the downtown Okc skyline. I enjoyed the entire drive along Robinson even the cheesy "hubcap alley" neighborhood signage.

    Although I'm not a big fan of b&w pics, this is a very cool and stylish shot:

    Another stylish skyline, this time in sunset red:



    (kind of reminds me of 'Fiddler on the Roof')

    The OKC Chamber has recently updated their website and is using a trio of (great) pics for their header image: a Crystal Bridge night shot from MBG, a sketch art style skyline, and a capitol dome inside closeup. Here's the skyline:



    This has a rather neat 'illustrated' look to it. I could see it being used as a nice background for posters, city-related announcement graphics, etc.

    They just need to remove the Devon logo from the old MidAmerica Tower and replace with Continental's.

    Hmm, looking at the 'illustrated' skyline a bit more, I realize that I've overlooked its biggest weakness -- the Devon Tower looks lifeless and dull. Which suggests that the graphic was put together before DT was finished, i.e. a rendering was inserted into an existing photo. Because, in reality, the Devon Tower comes to life like no other downtown building at dusk with its amazing light display.

    However... fix the Devon Tower in the pic with something more realistic and dazzling (the bright triangular display at the top, the colored LEDs on the side, etc.) and THEN you've got your killer graphic for posters, etc....

    It's actually undersized compared to reality.

    I'd be happy to (when the Devon lighting is completely finished and fully activated) go there and risk getting struck by lightning, taking a pic of downtown and posting it without a water mark through the middle of it for all to enjoy. BTW, that cloud to cloud lightning is always best after the main line of storms rolls through. I call it backside lightning, lol.

    Looks like tonight will be another good chance to get lightning shots of downtown.

    Post #95 shots look like they were photoshopped for a toy camera look, but I like it!

    Nice shots CaptDave! Notice on the second penthouse pic, near the bottom, the pigeon convention taking place on the white rooftop.

    Thanks - not too bad for an iPhone. Yep -lots of pigeon guano on the roof tops!

    This panoramic image pulls in a lot of stuff:



    Would have been an even nicer pic if it was on a sunny day. But still, quite impressive for its coverage. You've got all the Deep Deuce construction, and a good CBD view including the SandRidge workings, a stretch along 4th, and more.

    Particulary good if you download the original image: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8312/8...4a1348_o_d.jpg
