    Beautiful, Connie -- the dramatic skies really set off the church! I like how the shapes in your foreground are the inverse of the shapes of the church -- great composition!

Not only a very cool shot with the PERFECT PoV, but the focus and DoF are off the charts! I can see how someone might (might) get Dof like this off a point and shoot but to get this kind of DEPTH of FIELD with a Canon DSLR is ABSOLUTELY UNREAL! I am TRULY BLOWN AWAY! Don't think I have EVER (or ever will) see better depth focus than this!
OUTSTANDING work!
Jeff

Thanks Ellen. Jeffrey, this was at f/11...the tremendous depth of field is primarily because it is a 14mm lens on a full frame camera. And thank you again for your great comments!
