Quaint little church. Nice capture, Kevin!


Cheers, Liam ;)

Mr. K., Re: the HDR part: The building was in complete shade and the single exposures really didn't have any detail. So I teed up 5 exposures at +/- 1.0 and that took care of the building. As for the rest of the scene, errrr, well, the magic tag says it all. You might say this is 'California meets Iowa"!


Thank you, Liam. I hope all is well down your way!

the beauty of decay

that's what comes to my mind when I look at this shot

I took a lot of photos of abandoned buildings in North Dakota. What I find interesting about this is that even though there appears to be no care for the building itself, the lawn appears to be mowed.

Emerson, Thank you very much. PS - take care of that eye! (ouch!)

Austin, I'd wager there are some nice one's up there to take photos of - would like to see! Yeah, there definitely is some maintenance going on here. Although not weather-proof, it looked like the building was being used for storage by a guy that lives across the street.

Hello, Kevin. Ran across your photo from Jethro's photos. I like your gallery....wonderful! I LIKE this old church as well as many other photos you have uploaded.....your end decision about what you upload was the best thing. :) I'm a 'newbie' at Pano and like you, I waffle about what to upload. I've added you as a favorite so will look forward to seeing your uploads. Greetings from Oklahoma, Phyllis
