Photographer’s Notes
Budir Iceland. A quaint rural church near the North Atlantic coast on the Snaefellnes Peninsula. Taken with the sun at my back and about 15 degrees above the horizon. The wind was blowing about 50 mph, hard to hold the camera still.
I am traveling and don't have access to my regular PC and tools. This was edited using a 3 year old Sony laptop, Photoshop 7, and none of my usual pluggins. Best I can do under the circumstances. Enjoy.

Not sure what you find odd, or whether that's positive or negative. Guess your comment seems odd to me :)

Neat little chapel and a quite incredible setting. Nice light and composition. The light on the gate is a tad harsh though.

Great colors -- too bad the features got a bit blown out. Still a great image.

I like the angle of the shot. The church looks almost 2 dimensional against the vast backdrop. A very cool effect indeed. Good luck
