G'day Bob

Yes - it's a fine example of the many little churches we see around Oz
cc- if I may ... the image looks slightly dark to me - and I guess that the camera's light meter has read the bright clouds and over-compensated by darkening the image a bit too far.

Q- what photo editing program do you have? and would you be prepared to give it a bit of lightening up?

Regards, Phil

I must agree with Phil here, perhaps a slight lightning of the shadows would bring it out a little.

G'day again Bob

If you'll permit me ... here's what I was suggesting

Pop into PS Elements > select Levels [or use Ctrl+L] > and look at the histogram
Note how it's heavy on the dark end - meaning the image is a bit undercooked

Slide the RHS White marker across to the left till it kisses the histogram ... this makes the brightest part of the image now show as 'white' not 'grey'
Slide the middle / mid tone marker to about 1,25 to 1,40 [your choice]
and review what you've got

Here's a sample ...



Hope this is helpful
Regards, Phil
