I like the colours of this church - but is it the best shot I could have taken? I thought about a closeup on just the front door.

I have taken it at the this angle as just below the shot is an unsightly wall - as you can see on the bottom right I still captured some horrible carpets hanging out to dry...

Bah - I think I need to upgrade, it's so hard to find a digital camera that does the skys well, unless you get the more bulky DSLR's.

I too find the mellowed colors quite pleasing. To your surprise, framing the whole edifice at the expense of including the horrible carpets you mentioned would still be a good idea, along with a lovely theme.After all, this shot was not intended for an art history book, was it? Your diagonal view also works out well for saving the parts of the edifice look flat, the portico for example.

Hmmm I dunno - I just think that the carpets on the wall would draw peoples attention to them, and be too much of a distraction. As when I saw the opportunity, that is what I noticed the most (but not in a good way).

Thanks for the comments.
