Nice posts! Love that 1st one. The fade to white (burnt out) door was quite mysterious. Gets the imagination going! I love it!

Kinda inspired me. Next week, if I'm doing my walk around, I'll take some pictures of the churches around my work. Quite a different take on architecture. Mostly old factories or warehouses converted to churches, but some have their own little charm.

The 2nd two look very vintage. How'd you get that feel? Love it!

Thank you Glen, I made the 'vintage' look in Aperture, I used a little edge sharpening, .75% Polarizing and 1% iPhoto Effects 'Antique'.

Thanks for the reply.

Hey . . . do you think it is possible to get a similar effect from the in-camera filters?

I haven't fully explored the filters. Just been using the B&W and the high-contrast mostly.

Got me intrigued on learning the filters a bit more.

The edge sharpening . . . I'm wondering if I can do the high-contrast to simulate that. And then monochrome with a tint? for the Antique?

What does the Polarizing filter do to the image? I can't visualize that one . . . ?

Really love the first one! Others are great too but that first one really does it for me. What is more perfect for a church shot than a door leading to the light?
