Alex, you made it.

I like old churches like this. The first post you sent, the modified one on canvas I liked too. However, I just think if you had used a finer canvas. I have tried the texture thing but sometimes it just doesn't do what one would hope. It looked like a small picture on a large gauge canvas if you know what I mean. Even so I still think it was a great effort.

Keep sending them in, as I look out for your posts. Where are you in South Wales? I know Abervergenny, Brecon, Hay-on-Wye, Monmouth, etc. really well and all that area. Used to travel a lot around South Wales on my motorbike in my earlier days. I miss it too. Would love to visit Hay especially again.

this one is a bit overexposed.. don't be afraid to take a few shots and bracket your exposure..

also make use of your lead in lines... get in the road and kneel down to emphasize the road leading to the church, this will give you more interest throughout your frame as well as making it more interesting..

and you can post bigger pictures.. say 600-700 pixels on the long side.. then adjust your compression until you are under 250k..

cheers!

it is a bit overexposed - the sky's a bit blown, and it'sa real pity you couldn't get rid of that blue sign, which really detracts from the image. can you get around behind the building to photograph it without that distraction? or perhaps over to the left,to capture some perspective with the tower in the foreground?it's a wonderful old church...

Yeah Alex... How's your PS skills. This looks doable. Maybe... Kinda small.

If you get back, do lots of compositions.
