Is Salvation Here???

Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: From the Ground Up IV (Basic Editing)
Collection: Ribbons & Top 10s
Camera: Nikon D70s
Lens: Tamron AF 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di LD Aspherical IF for Nikon
Location: Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
Date: Oct 18, 2007
Aperture: F/22
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/100
Date Uploaded: Oct 19, 2007

Converted from RAW, greyscale, cloned out dust, contrast, reduce noise, sharpen, resize, save for web, submit

I guess I should have left some further details......this effect was just a result of what happens with reducing noise hard, and hammering the contrast. It was actually a sunny, bright day, with the wind blowing wisps of clouds around, and they just went dark and bleak with PS.

This is the Grace United Methodist Church in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and I sure that the members of the congregation would be mortified at this perspective of their beloved 200 year old church.

You did a really nice job with this. When I first looked at it I thought it may have been the Scooby-Doo tower at King's Dominion here in Virginia (used it for a reflections challenge). Obviously it's not. :-D

This location would make a great shot for a Halloween challenge too! Of course, you'd need that dramatic sky to cooperate again. :-P

Beautiful! I don't generally tend to like very "heavy" looking skies but here it works really, really nicely.

Congrats, Jeb. You got a top 10 and a new third-best personal score. :) More importantly, what an image!

Well, congratulations, Jeb!! All your worrying was for naught -- 7th place with a "top 10 star" is something to be proud of. This is a wonderful image -- very spooky and appropriate for this season. And look at all those 8s, 9s, and 10s.
