Default Along a Country Road

I passed this old church yesterday as I was driving around looking for fall colors and decided to turn around and get this shot.

Bit of an odd looking pic. Everything is too pristine. The parking lot tarmac is too perfect abutting to the road like that and all the way to infinity. The only part of the pic that I dont like is the blurriness of the large 2 trees on the left. How about showing us the pre post production shot?

Default original

You have a great eye!! Here is the original, I really didn't like the way the rocks and grass looked on the left side of the pic, I think I got carried away trying to fix the parking lot. Please feel free to see what you can do to that spot if you like.

I think it looks best in B&W which gives the picture a certain sense of tranquility and timelessness.

The road and the power-lines give it some great diagonals and direction, leading the eye past the church and on the road to wherever (Vanishing Point).

I like it as it is -calm and a little lonely really, but in a positiv way.

Your friend the Tokina 11-16 is a great lens with awesom perspective!

Thank you Walter, I really do love this lens and am hooked on wide angle shooting!

Is this what you were thinking? Another thought was to crop the area so you have a wide panorama shot

I like both edits and the idea on the cropping, I will give it a go on the full sized original. I appreciate your work on these!

i preferred the strong contrast of the first image, i think just a crop off the bottom is all that was needed.
