Route 66 Redux - Century Theatres, Albuquerque by 

I took a panoramic shot of this same theater on December 26, 2008. I thought at that time that wet pavement might add a nice touch. I had to wait from then to now for a decent nighttime rain (this being the desert, and all). This looked fine as is, but I threw a few buckets of saturation and vibrance on it and it soaked them up like a champ, so here is the high sat version.

Century 24 Theatre on Central Avenue in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
