A one image shot, no HDR taken last week while on a return trip to the area. I may crop in some on the left hand side. Let me know if you have any suggestions for improvement.

Very nice - especially the sky and soft lighting on the church. Contrast fits the mood well.

Nit: distortion - trees and steeple are not vertical.

Regards,

Bob

A couple more tweaks are required and thanks for mentioning the distortion. I should never try to work on images in the middle of the night I think I should go and lighten the top of the steeple as well while I am at it.

Barbara,
I really like this image.
Love the contrast, dark mood, and the dark clouds on the left add both visual balance and mood to a fine image. Comp is spot on in my opinion.
Bob and others may have more useful fine tuning suggestions than I can offer.
Tweak, cross-post to BW.

Scott

Diggin' the tones.

Also, the alignment of the window that lets you "see through" is a nice detail. +1 at above posts.

I might consider trimming some off the bottom, still leaving enough to bring the shadow line "near" the LLC. Also, I might consider cloning the tree branch in the URC ... noting that I said consider for both as we are only talking subtle points

Nicely done.

Scott, glad you like the image. The posted version is a little flat so I did some additional straightening of the tree, Church steeple and lightened the top of the church. I may post a couple images over in the B/W forum, thank you for suggesting it.

Kent, appreciate your comments and I cropped out the uppermost limp on the right but not sure if I like it, it's on a separate layer so I can replace the limb at a moment's notice. I haven't played around with cropping tighter on the bottom so I will look into that. Thanks, Barbara

Posted a re-work with the suggested corrections.

Thank you Karen for presenting an alternate version. Always enlightening to see your re-works and hear your suggestions.
