Camera: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000
Location: First Baptist Church Huntsville, AL.
Date: Dec 24, 2015
Aperture: 2.8
ISO: 125
Shutter: 1/1600
Date Uploaded: Dec 27, 2015

Focal Length: 9mm (or 25mm full frame equivalent)

It was Christmas Eve day and so no one was in the parking lot, which made for the perfect excuse to take some pictures. I forgot to reset the ISO. The 1600 was really unnecessary. But, didn't seem to add too much noise.

Did some minor post enhancements. I still have allot to learn about Photo Shop and other software I use.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

I gave this a 6 in voting partly cause I'm a suckah for wide-angle stuff, and because I could see you put some effort into it. Again I can see lots of the same kind of mistakes I made. Like the edge of the church spire looks jagged - that usually means a little too much sharpening has been going on. There is a way to reduce the amount of sharpening you do, so you can still get the best of what sharpening can do without overdoing it.

I would watch for things like the glow around the cross atop the church; the fact that you used this church and a religious mural should do all the talking for you. Adding the glow seems to me belabouring the point.

Colours are good, look a little saturated but not overly so. The lack of human activity is both good and bad because this has a bit of an abandoned feel to it with no people there; but nor did you want to shoot just a parking lot full of cars.

Keep on shooting and entering!
