About the Image(s)

I ran across this beautiful church first on a brochure promoting tourist features of the town. I found upon visiting that it was too crowded into other buildings in downtown Stowe to make a good photograph, but I found this view on a trip up the mountain, the same vantage point the photographer had taken in the brochure promotion shot (albeit that shot also featured fall foliage). l processed in Photoshop to crop and reduce the sun glare.

Beautiful scene. The fall colors will be out soon and would add another dynamic to your already great setting. Your church is set off nicely in the forest and I made a few minor alterations. Cropped the sky in half and dehised the sky increase the blue, Cropped the tree in the lower right our along with the grascut grass and cropped the left side in to the bush on the lower left. The last crop used the bush by the stream to stop the eye from wandering into the small depression, removed telophone wires,and the telephone pole on back of the church. All minor amd maybe a bit picky.   Posted: 10/06/2019 17:48:05

I agree with Tom's suggestions. It places more emphasis on the church and the stream. I feel like there is too much blue in the image overall. You might try some very slight adjustments with the white balance.   Posted: 10/07/2019 13:18:48

Beautiful landscape set off by the white church. I agree with Tom's suggestions and crop I agree with Dorinda that it is a little too blue Robert's mono does not have enough contrast for my taste   Posted: 10/09/2019 12:13:02

I like this landscape scene, but I would crop off some of the image from the left side, throwing the church off center even more. I feel like the church is getting a little lost in all the green. I would keep it in color.   Posted: 10/21/2019 05:00:29
