Default Morning Prayers

I kept coming back to this image remembering when I took it. Thinking of the composition, I placed the church in the bottom centre with the sun rising on the far left. Giving it a wide angle look, I knew the far right was left empty and perhaps in want of some interest ... this explains why I kept coming back to ponder the image several times before actually sitting down to work on it.

I did things like cropping out the right then cropping out the left and though that gave a different feel each time I settled for darkening the sky and foreground on the right. The edit gave me the feel I liked from it so I'm good with it.

Beautiful, it has a subtle HDR look to it that I really like. Wonderful composition too.

this one i really like. i love the lead in from the fence row. and the radial lines in the clouds which seem to almost eminate from the church. the sunburst adds interest and the darkened sky keeps the eye from straying too far away.
