This church was a great subject inside and out. Today I am going to concentrate on the outside. When I took these shots I was trying to use only one focal length for the whole day and this church broke me. I was using a 50mm lens and to get the whole church in the frame mean I would have had to stand in the middle of the restaurant behind me. So I whipped out my wide angle lens and cheated on the days challenge.
This first shot I thought worked well in colour with the teal domes and warm glow from the pale yellow of the church and morning sun. 22mm ISO100 F8 1/125 Edited in Lightroom
At the rear of the church even 22mm wasn’t wide enough to fill the church in the frame. I backed up right into one of the stations of the cross that are in the church grounds and pulled the lens back to 18mm. I could just fit everything in if I sacrificed the perspective, which in this case I actually like. I processed this image several times but it never seemed right. I finally realised black and white would work well and edited the image in Silver Efex after basic adjustments in Lightroom. 18mm ISO200 F8 1/100.
