Good shot, Walter. Now, are the bricks white'ish on those columns or the isimage a bit over exposed?

That is a massive structure for a city park entrance but I guess they do everything big in Texas! Overall, I don't think the shot is overexposed. The sky and the roadway look good. I believe that is light colored brick with white mortar.

Good work, Walter.

Yes, things do tend to be bigger here. The City of Arlington takes it seriously, as the home of the Texas Rangers (Ameriquest Field), Six Flags Over Texas, and Jerry Jones' new $1 billion (yes, with a "B") home of the Dallas Cowboys, to be completed in 2009. It is supposed to be the world's most expensive and luxurious sports venue when completed.
