Made it through the wedding of my wife's nephew, and took a few shots while in the city.

That is great composition! Love the unique view of the arch along with the tree braches that show depth. Many kudos!!

Nice pictures, the arch one certainly makes you look twice. How big is that arch compared to... something else?

The arch is 630 feet high and 630 feet wide. I was limited as far as a lens to try to capture it (I used the kit lens 18-55mm).

Nice shots. Looks like you were a little early, or late to watch the Cards beat up on the Rockies.

Did you use the kit lens in the Basilica? How were the lightingconditions there?

I used the kit lens and my manual 50mm f1.4. Lighting was very bad and, of course, they didn't want flashes used during the wedding.

Rickst, love the shot of the arch, excellent positioning even the lens flare helps the composition.
