Downtown Methodist

Contributed by T Carnes

This picture is of a methodist church downtown in 5 points. The original looks little to nothing like this, i've added a brightness/contrast to it, curves layer, and added a levels adjustment.

Wow! I love what you’ve done with this shot! It’s such a great example of how processing can enhance an image. All the colors in the image are so sharp. From the different tans and browns of the building to the hues of blue in the sky. I am truly in awe by this shot.

awesomness in digital form.
thats what that is.
I love the colors and value contrast and the tower is tilted nicley making it a dynamic shot.

I like this photo a lot. The church looks so clean and perfect. I think the picture would look a little bit better if the sky was lighter or had some clouds in it but besides that it’s a great photo!

i almost wish you had less sky and more of the church captured. but this is a really good photo anyway. i really like the colors and how sharp the picture is. its really nice

great picture as usual. i think the shadows are a little extreme especially in the blend but overall add to the compositions feeling. the actual building has a really nice color but also is to extreme and a little blown out.

I like how sharp and vibrant the colors are. And the church against the sky makes a really interesting subject. I wish the sky was a little lighter because I can see the sunlight on the church building so it looks like its day time, and the sky screams nighttime. That is the only way I would have figured it for being processed as much as you did. I like the subject placement and that the building is off at an angle instead of straight on.

The sky is blue, but i looked at the shot at home, school and at a friends and they all look different. The color of the sky really depends on what the color settings of your monitor are, it's suppose to be somewhat dark blue, but at school it almost looks black, my friends, it looks very black, and at home it looks normal. If you're using a mac and the monitor is on SB mode it looks jet black, so that has a lot to do with it, but the original version, if printed won't appear to dark at all.

Definitely. Awesome picture. I love the angles involved. Obviously it'd be difficult to take this kind of picture from anywhere besides the base of the building, but it's the angle the building makes with the rest of the picture that makes this one so good. Add that to a nice building, good color and contrast, and sharp focus, and this is one heck of a photograph

I really like this photo. Its a great example of photographing architecture and i love the colors. I really like the contrast of how muted the blue of the sky is and how bright the yellow building is.
