St. Barts

A local church, but a magnificent one.

This is a beautiful piece of architecture, and it looks like a very beautiful day. Curious as to why you decided to do this in black and white? Excellent post processing...

Very strong image. I can't imagne it in colour - would be too 'pretty' perhaps?

Thanks for the comments. The church looks Ok in colour but it really seems to stand out in B&W. It also suits IR very well but I have just sold my sony 828 which I was using for this purpose.
Am looking for a better alternative for IR - anyone know of a goood camera to use.

A great shot, can't fault it. I've seen an IR version of this on ePhoto from IRaddict that is from a similar angle (or at least it looks like the same one).

photo almost perfect. Very, very nice. I like all elements of the photo: subject, comp, b&w, contrast, point of view

Cheers folks.
Gav - IR Addict was with me when I took this shot. The one you have seen on EPZ was taken earlier in the year - we both tend to visit this church quite often as its close to both our houses.

Nice shot, but unlike Gav I can fault it. As it is so near your homne you should have taken some shears and trimmed that hedge in the centre foreground!

Thanks for the advice Neddy. I'm sure I can fit in a pair of shears with my 2 bodies, five lenses, flash, tripod and nourishment (usually booze!)

I know what you are saying though about that bush, could do with a trim!

I also love this shot,great comp.Looks like you used a polorizor to get the contrast in the sky.

Neddy - I guess, but I don't think it takes too much away from the photo, as my eyes are drawn to the contrast between the top of the church and the clouds in the sky. Actually, looking at this in more detail, I think it would benefit from being in a square format - cropping some of the right hand side of the photo out (between the two big trees). It works both ways, so just an idea...

Very nice composition. One of the better b&w shots. Maybe too much post processing for my tastes though

Wow. What a wonderful photograph!
