Day 299- Sunday Best

28 Jan

I will get away from churches eventually I promise. I guess I should just feel fortunate that we have so many beautiful buildings around the area to inspire me and give me subject after subject to shoot. I think next week I might move back to some type of portrait work, but we will see how I feel about that when the time comes. Hope you all had a wonderful Friday night and have relaxing fun plans for the rest of the weekend.



I thought I would convert this one to b&w as well and let you decide. I am not even going to tell you which I prefer and why because I am looking forward to your opinion.

    I’m not kidding…I totally need to move where you are! Another beautiful church…I prefer the color on this one…something about the windows. 🙂

    I too love the color on this one. However, I also like the black and white. It looks, somehow, gothic. Love the churches. Wish there were some around me to photograph!!

    I’m going color on this shot. I love the contrast between the red brick and the white clouds/sky. Majestic. Heavenly.

    Hey Mindy – the black and white one feels very 50s Gothic – and while I like the colour contrast in the first one, I think from an impact point of view the b and w is stronger… but the whole church series – WOW great stuff.

    You know how I feel about most B&W’s, Mindy, but I think I prefer the second one here. The contrast in the first picture is almost too much of a contrast. The B&W is quite Hitchcockian.

    I like them both. The first one because it looks warm and inviting!
    The 2nd one is sooooo dramatic!

    I prefer the color pic. The B&W is great, it has a very vintage look to it. But the color one seems to pop out at me a little more. Maybe because of the brightness against the almost B&W background? Not sure.

    Great job on both, tho!

    Beautiful pics! But this church looks like one I’d be scared to enter!!!!

    Both are great shots. And oddly, though I tend to like b&w for your shots, the color one I like the best. It is close though. The clouds really frame the church. The color of the sky is very subtle in the top shot. If I were to do anything in that color shot, I would see about desaturating that small green window(?) at the bottom. The B&W effectively eliminates what I think IMHO is a distraction in the color shot. So there you have all of my two cents.

    I like both, but the color version draws me in more.

    I like the color one best! Your photos have been amazing. I feel bad I’ve been out of touch with everyone’s blog 😦 These are absolutely amazing though. I love the sky in ALL of them. 🙂
