About the Image(s)

This is the back side of an old Texas mission. I like the textures in the walls and the sky. It was taken with a Nikon 18-200mm lens at 1/400th second, f10, ISO 200. To add more texture to the walls I used Topaz Adjust 5 with a moderate grunge pop. Then I converted to mono with Photoshop. I did crop some off the left side to make the mission more of the subject.

Beautiful photography, Tom. I love visiting and photographing old missions and churches across the Midwest - this shot is well done!

Kind regards,

I love the B&W version for two reasons - firstly the textures on the building come to the fore in the B&W more than they do in the colour version and secondly the clouds are more dramatic. Superb treatment that adds character to the image.   Posted: 11/02/2019 18:37:55

Good job. Just perfect. You have shown us that it's a good idea to "walk around back" for a picture.   Posted: 11/04/2019 17:27:17

The front was not really very photogenic. It was too close to a wall in front so that you could not get a good image.   Posted: 11/05/2019 12:41:12
