Hi, Pat!! Terrific perspective, lines, and stone texture as well as those nice puffy clouds and blue sky! Very well done!!

Thanks, Stan. This is my family's church from before I was born. It is one of the older churches in Chicago and is very beautiful inside. It was built without nails and someone said it was in the Guinness Book of Records (haven't checked it out myself). Every window is stained glass with beautiful artwork and the altar is made of marble. Unfortunately, I was there for my aunt's funeral. I want to go back and photograph the church with the priest's permission. #1121974

Hope you've had the chance to shoot the inside, Pat, as it must be filled with beautiful light and subjects! CONGRATULATIONS on your win, and best of luck in the next round!
With much Aloha,

Thanks, Stan. I did do some inside shots, but they were done hastily. We were there for my aunt's funeral and I shot as we were leaving the church. I want to call the church and go back and shoot it properly. It is one of the prettiest churches I have been in. #1179902
