Happened across this scene of a small town church while cycling to Waxahachie for the WWII reenactment I shoot every year. I was hoping there might be a field chapel set up in one of the allied camps, but that didn't happen.

Not expecting much from this, but I am not a religious person and churches are not a subject that enthuses me, so I may be way off.

Not shabby at all for a topic that does not enthuse me and is not my forte.

Really thought this would have done better. From the light behind the bell tower to the partial rainbow I thought that while also being a very nicely done photograph it captured some significant Christian symbolism within it (intentionally or otherwise - which, let's face it, could have played as a negative for some), which I believe added to the impact of the photo.

I think it might benefit from a 4:5 crop even though the sky above is lovely (I was forced to size down in my monitor as the forum software did not automatically resize it for viewing on my screen), and I suspect the blown out highlights cost you a point here and there. Still, this was in my top tier.
