Selective Color: Church in the mist.

I like the color version of this photo better (not that it had a lot of color, just some green) but it seemed to fit the challenge.

That is a really sweet shot. And the color placement is just right.

Nicely done. Where is that located?

Thanks Bynx and calr. Calr this is one of the many many churches in American Samoa. It is a point of pride that each village has a church (or 2). The churches are not all that large but they do have some interesting structures. Unfortunately a lot of the churches are a little crowded around them, have power lines in front of them or donít have the best back grounds behind them. For this church I was driving back to work and it was pouring rain. As I was driving by it slowed to a drizzle and it looked like the church was in a cloud. The road is next to the bay so I could not back up enough to get rid of the perspective distortion so I had to do that PP.

Right now I am still in American Samoa but should get to go home in a few days. The full color version is on flickr along with the other photos from this trip. If I remember correctly this one is even mapped.

Great looking chruch and selective color. Would be hard to find a pretty landscape to have the church sit.
