Daily Deviation

Given 2013-01-10
Church by *LadyPawPaw ( Featured by Kaz-D )
:iconlk-photography:
I have to admitt that when I looked at the daily deviations for today it took me almost half a day to open your image, and when I did I was stunned!
I love the processing that sets the focus on the church, giving the feeling of something holy and sacred, something blessed in the monotony of the town and the darkness of the sky.
I don`t know how the city looks for real, but in this photo I am sure that you show a perpective that not many have thought about, a beautiful light writting that might stay as a print in many houses.
Congratulations for your vision and for the DD!

As a catholic, my esteem for the church is very high. This image reflects averything I feel on a dark gloomy day, and I'm sure others feel reflected as well. The colors are stunning and the photograph is amazing. I like how the color "filters" have such an impact on the image itself on the feeling it gives of holiness and beauty. I love how the dark clouds overtake the city but the church remains lit up. The imgae is also beautiful based on how it reflects the very "personality" of the town.

It truly has an impact on the viewers. (congratulations on the Daily Deviation)

The perspective on the church is totally off, I'm not sure why this is labelled as photography and not photomanipulation. It's a great concept for sure but you can admit yourself, this is not a genuine photograph.

Play a bit more with the perspective warping in photoshop, also pay attention to the direction the light beams are coming in. The light beams are reflecting off the SHADOW side of the church in this picture, which goes against the natural laws of light.

Still, kudos on the DD, but I can't help but be peeved at the fact that this is not a geniune photograph, and it was given a DD on account of it being such. One more critique: use lens blur as a method of making the fake depth of field, gaussian blur makes it looks too fuzzy for the proper tilt shift effect. :) keep practicing!

While I am Wiccan and actually have a rather bleak history with the Christian community that surrounds me, I can fully feel the relief that church can provide in a shot such as this one. The perspective and lighting in this piece are absolutely, and this is a well-deserved DD. :clap:

Religious and emotional. The concept is not really new, but how you express it is absolutely dynamic and stunning.
Is the light actually captured or digitally created?
