Ok, so I guess this isn't EXACTLY a place of worship. It's the Elvis Presley Museum which houses historical aritifacts of the Superstition Mts. It was once used on movie sets and in some tv series. Now, it's a museum and wedding chapel
Converted using gradient map
Nice image Judy just a shame the sky is so bland... like the church surrounded by
what is the plant. Thanks for your post.
This is my favorite church. It is located in the Cape Mudge Village on Quadra Island in British Columbia. I have been photographing it off and on for more than 30 years and I am planning to have a go at it again next week. I am heading off to Quadra for a couple of weeks to do some salmon fishing and to close the house for the winter. I converted in CS3 and also used Virtual Photographer for the toning.
Colby a nice simple image, be careful with exposure you have lost a little detail in the white, expose for the highlights and let the shadows take care of themselves, thanks for posting
St. Thomas the Martyr Church
The church of St. Thomas the Martyr, Barras Bridge was consecrated in 1830. This 'Peculiar' in the City Centre was designed by the architect John Dobson and built by the Trustees of Saint Mary Magdalene and Holy Jesus Hospitals to replace a medieval chapel by the Tyne. Until recently the 'Master' was chaplain to these hospitals: now he is the Anglican Chaplain to the University.
Foozen.A nice image but you may want to try a little adjustment to bring out the details, looks just a little soft maybe a little USM or selective sharpening would help.. Thanks for your contribution..
Did a little tweek, hope you dont mind. Used a contrast mask to begin with then a little selective USM and finished with a little dodging of the shadows..
I will go for an inside view if you dont mind Ian.
This is Dunblane Cathedral near Stirling in Scotland and dates back to the 12th Century
Converted in photoshop with channel mixer and monochrome box ticked. Applied a large amount of Unsharpen mask with a high radius to add loads of contrast. Frame added ..shrunk in size and sharpened for web presentation … halleluiah ..jobs done ..enjoy :-D
Nice image Donny, good comp and nice conversion. Did you HDR the image first...?? Thanks for taking the time to post..
I was traveling the backroads of Mississippi in March of this year. I came upon a
crossroad called "Church Hill". There on a mound was this church (guess that is why
it is called Church Hill
). Not too much in the area ... a post office on one corner,
the church on the second, a small house on the third and nothing but farmland and woods
on the 4th. The church is still used on Sundays for one service ... and for funerals
Not much of a change from the color version ... converted to B&W with a little
contrast enhancement. Sorry the color pic has been nuked.Thanks for viewing
Dave a nice little image but needs a little work, overall a little grey, IMO you really need to bring out the blacks in this image to give it more substance...thanks for posting..
The Old Mission San Juan Bautista.
...began with a group of leather-jacketed soldiers and a few Native Americans watching a tonsured Franciscan priest raise his eyes and hands toward the sky...
"In the name of our blessed Father, and the saint whose feast we commemorate today, St. John the Baptist..."
The day was June 24, 1797, a Saturday, and the priest was Fr. Fermin de Lasuen, Presidente of the California Missions successor to Blessed Junipero Serra. This mission was one of four established by Fr. Lasuen in the summer of 1797 and the fifteenth of the twenty-one missions in Alta, California……
Rather than me shamelessly copying this please visit http://www.oldmissionsjb.org/
for a much better and more complete description…
The image was converted by the Gradient Map technique. Processing included a bit of cloning to remove unwanteds, dodging and burning to bring out detail, local contrast enhancement with unsharp mask layer, sizing for web and high pass filter sharpening layer.
Good conversion on this one with good true blacks and tonal variation. Great composition like the way the hand reach for the sky. Personally I would have stepped 2 ft to the right to sperate the tower from the arms but only a small nit. Thanks for your post...
One of my favourite subjects and a rather unusual angle................
Like the angle, good conversion but a little constrast issue that has compressed the tonal range, and not sure about the black sky. Cheers
Here's mine! What fun
This is the Abbey in Richardton, North Dakota.
Crystal what an impressive building. Your conversion is a good but lacks a little tonal variation giving a overall grey look to the image. Simple later adjustment to the curves IMO gives the image a little mor sparkle. Thanks for contributing and I hope you dont mind my little tweek of your image... Ian
Thanks everyone for your contributions and watch out for the next challenge.
