Re: Masa K...

No, this church is in Campbell. You're right about the time and the season, though.

I see you're bay area. Is this church the one in Dublin?
If so, great shot! I live a few blocks away, and I've been trying
for an artistic picture of that building for some time now. I'm
guessing late evening in mid summer, by the sunlight on the front
wall (it doesn't come that far around in winter, if this is the
church I'm thinking of)

OT: Two from 1950

Taken with my "new" Voigtländer Bessa 6x9cm (confirmation present) on a trip with my parents to France in july 1950. In Rouen I took this picture of the cathedral. The town was terribly destroyed in WWII.

Can anybody tell me is this church in Rouen too.

I still have all my negatives

How did you get no distortion? Was it the lens you used or did you use perspective correction? Very impressive either way...janell

Re: Show your Church photos please

I presume you are asking me about the first image DSC4881_79_80

Shot with !7-35 2.8 at 17mm f11 ( equiv 25mm on a 35mm film )

No correction for converging verticals.

3 shots combined in Photomatix.

Slight cropping in CS2 too centre the image along the centre line of the knave and crop to the bottom of the pillars.

If there is anything you can give religion credit for without argument, it is definitely the incredible architecture it has inspired.

Here are some from Russia... Moscow, St. Petersburg, Suzdal and Novgorod. All taken with an 8 year old (?) Coolpix 990. Posted these cause I thought you guys had me covered on my France and Italy church pictures : ).

Re: Danish Churchs 8 pic

Those are very nice and thank you for the information. How old is that round church?

Very creative without being too abstract. Your other work is enjoyable as well.

Very interesting church. You can see where the sun has worn down the paint over time. I like it.

Re: Romania

Interesting church. That picture pretty much tells the story of the effects of long term exposure to UV light.
