This tiny little chapel was at the edge of a small town in the Black Forest. I have no idea if it is actually used as a tiny little chapel or if it's more to signal the start or end of the town. But it was cute, so I stopped at a pull-off area just down the road and walked back to take its picture. I was literally standing right in front of it shooting with the 10-22. The perspective was corrected a little - the original is even more warped. :-)

Touch of Topaz (or a lot, I can't remember) then converted using Nik Silver Efex.

I know it's early and all, but come on people - I edited this 27 ways to Sunday and it's only a 5.3? I really did try this time! Sigh....

Slow on the uptake, this one. Up to 5.9 now! Woo hoo!!

So you willed it to a 6, congrats on that. ;\

My 7 helped you a wee bit I see, it deserved more. Hope you're happy with where it finished.
