About the Image(s)

I was on a cross country road trip from Washington state to Michigan traveling on a rural road when I noticed this building on a hill in the distance. I was anxious to check it out. On arriving there was a sign saying it was “The Pink Church”. It is located on the Belknap Indian Reservation in Montana. It has been abandon since the last priest retired some years ago. It was a gray drizzly day. I converted it to B&W in ON1 2020 using a preset called “Ansel in the Valley”. I used a white vignette because the sky had no detail and it almost looks like a “high key” image. Taken with my Sony 7RMIII, Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 lens. ISO 400, 1/250 shutter speed and f/10 aperture.

I like your dreamy approach to this image by using high key and white vignette. I also like the angle you have chosen. My only advice for improvement is to remove the wire across the gate.   Posted: 11/12/2019 02:23:49

Very nice, the angle you have captured the church at is great, it show great depth. I agree with Arne about the wire but I would have taken the entrance posts out as well so that it does not conflict with the building.   Posted: 11/13/2019 22:13:51

Great composition. Like that you didn't consider darkening the sky and went with high key instead. I agree with Arne & David about the wire.   Posted: 11/24/2019 10:43:31
