I like the first one, but a better sky would have enhanced it tremendously (next time call up the weatherman and demand cooperation! LOL). The second one seems too stark of a contrast between the deep blue skies and the edges of the structure. Did you do any photoshop work on either?

Photoshop? Me?

Yep, this was one of my experiments with Photoshop Elements. The church was taken during the day and the sky ended up very light, almost gray, not to mention tremendously underexposed. I selected the church and brightened it, then selected the sky and ran a 201h warm sky filter on it to make it blue. Then I added the moon in from another shot.

I couldn't figure out how to do a better job selecting out the edges which is why they look darker.

BTW, I like the dark sky in the 'remake'. Feel free to keep remaking.

I also played with the first one. I kept the color of the reds and columns and changed the rest to B&W. That's where the sky went.

Thanks for all the comments and suggestions!

Take care,
Jeff
