This is one of the churches I mentioned a few weeks ago – a church that has given over much of its lawn as garden patches for the neighbours in the surrounding apartments. The patch of green in front of the windows here will be filled with peppers, tomatoes and herbs in a few weeks' time.

Tech: captured in raw, converted to jpg, cropped slightly, cloned out a stray bit of paper, resized, sharpened edges only, framed and signed

Thanks for looking and for your critiques and suggestions for improvement. Have a wonderful, healthy, happy week.

I love this shot Silke, the steep roof and steeple is what caught my eye! We don’t have much of that here, but it makes for a cool shot, being off center, and the blue sky is excellent! 90 degrees to the sun? Nice work again!

Superb Bright photo of this modern Church.
Perfectly taken, Silke.

Attractive Diagonal element and triangle form of facade create a leading line to cross,Well combination of light and color in this scene too.Good work,TFS.

A very beautiful church! I like the framing. The detail is superb. Very nice lighting and a pretty blue sky. Thanks! Have a good day!

Nice composition Silke, some of these modern churches have some nice lines.
I often wonder what people will say in a few hundred years or so, any way lovely and sharp with natural colours.

Hi Silke

Good colour, sharpness & lighting contrasts. Excellent graphism of the dark grey slate roof against the lighter blue sky. Tfs!

Hi Silke,
Nice shot here of a beautiful church. I like the steep pitch of the roof. The steeples look great against the blue sky. The reflection in the window is nice as well. Nice work.

Hello Silke

Oh my goodness what a stunning building. I love this style of modern architecture that holds the shape and form of older buildings. Lovely POV with superb colour saturation too

TFS regards Helen

good framing make a well balance and intersting picture.good sharpness and light create shade & shadow and make the church look 3 dimension not flat one.excellent blue sky,green grass and the church form make it outstanding.

Great shot of this gorgeous architecture Silke.
I like how the lines from the roof flow
from one end of the shot to the other.
The brown tones look reat against the deep blue sky as well.
Nicely done!

I really like the tones in this shot, Silke. The browns/greys against the blue are wonderful. Great lines for the church with your composition showing the architecture so well. Well done.
Warm Regards

Hello again Silke
My first reaction is the quality of the lighting captured on the church. The shadows add depth to the structure. You made the windows the central point of interest. Neat stuff here.

What a good idea about lending out the land to make gardens. I love summer vege gardens.
Nicely composed image Silke - I would have cropped off the side of the window on the left, as it is on an angle there. But apart from that you have captured a pleasant looking church. It looks quite newly built too?

Hi Silke,

This is a picture-perfect-postcard! Beautiful blue sky, nice shadows on the building, interesting lines and angles.

Nice one. Lisa

A lovely picture Silke with a not-typical english blue sky that really shows of the modern architecture with elements of the old.
Love the idea of growing vegatables in a church garden, too bad you can not go back to see all those nice reds and greens in a few weeks.


Your idea of taking just part of the church, makes it very interesting. Excellent colors, lighting and sharpness. Well framed. TFS
