Sepia Scenes Wednesday #11



A local Greek Orthodox Church. I love this building and had to stop one day just as the sun was setting behind it. I used Photobucket to edit; the first one being 50% 'old photo' effect. The second one I experimented a bit more by using bronze on the focal point of the three crosses and then sepia throughout. Photobucket's sepia is a bit pink so I only used it at 50%. The sky was so blue though, that it came out a bit purple, but I still like it.

You captured the glow behind the steeple perfectly. They are wonderful shots.

I like the old photo look. Too bad the power lines passed through the image. Darn things. **sigh**

What a fascinating building. I wonder what it looks like in color.

Great job on your sepia tweaking, btw.

What a beautiful church! The turrets with their crosses and horizontal trim are so eye catching, and your tweaks are stunning!

Wonderful capture of the three crosses and the sun's halo really make it look neat.

Orthodox Church looking how it should be I guess....weird.

I like the halo of color encompassing the crosses. It's very creative tinkering.

I also like the halo effect created in the second photo. Both look great in sepia. The striping is quite a unique look for a church.
