I've posted shots of this lovely old church here before. It's a Heritage Site in Coldstream, BC, not far from where I live.

Your second picture is (not to mention the composition) a very good example of using "nothingness" (to the right of course)

I.e. you let the viewer fill up the emptyness him- or herself

In for instance so called folk art there is often the opposite way of treating surfaces. There is a "horror vacui"

I´m not quite sure it really is a question abour horror. Perhaps it´s just economizing with the medium (smile)

Tasteful captures again, Toshi

In your first pic. I'd even do some further cropping off from the bottom and maybe a little from sideways to make a good match withthe second pic.

Ah, such an adorable sky!!

Thanks, guys. Your comments are much appreciated. I tried your suggestions Bahadir, but I don't know if they improve the pic or not - I'll let you decide!Thanks again!:-)

Again, beautiful image in many respects!

Even a bolder cropping such as the one below would do IMO.
