BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Power and Glory!
Power and Glory!

I went out yesterday to one of my favorite spots to photograph (a country church). The clouds and sky were beautiful, but the sun was mostly obscured by clouds and the color image appears "flat". So, to try and give the picture a more dramatic look, with some "pop", I applied several filters and techinques, including Orton. I then converted the image to black and white in virtualPhotographer, a free Adobe plugin from optikVerve Labs. The look is somewhat like an infrared image because of the bright yellow/orange leaves on the large trees in front of the church. Hope you enjoy!

Ron - very nicely done. I've photographed that church a number of times but the sky was never very cooperative... Nice use of filters to completely set the mood. Happy New Year!

Well, this is far from "flat" now, Ron. In fact, it was the wonderful contrasts and dramatic tones that led me to open this POTD and comment on it--something I seldom take the time to do unless the winner is a special cyber friend :) Congratulations on your win (which I obviously missed) and this newest award.

Ronald, this was a favorite of mine the first time that I saw it; the image has a fitting Spiritual aspect to it and you've captured it perfectly; truly powerful and very thought provoking!

I don't usually respond to the many photos I see as I'm pretty busy these days. This one, however, immediately pulled me in. There is drama, there is contrast, there is sharpness, and there is composition. What a fantastic shot, and bravo on the technique.
