St. Clements Kirk

Postby minniev » Fri Sep 22, 2017 4:29 pm

My own cluttered rendition of a beautiful old church from around 1500, it yields a nice, much simpler and more classic composition from other angles but everyone here is probably acquainted with my affection for clutter.

All comments welcome, or edits.

Proper description eludes me but I like the rather hdr'ish or painterly look of the foreground, then diminishing to the church.....

Thanks Frank. My usual teaspoon of glow effect, I often like what it does to clutter.

That means a lot! You saw the scene so you know it isn't St. Clement's best face, but what can I say, it's Me and How I See.

Not cluttered...sensitively composed to take maximal advantage of absolutely every miscellaneous damned thing available which would be distractions in the images of others.
A true "Min Masterpiece"!

And that's not stated with any sarcastic or derisive intent. (yeah...I re-read it and wondered how it came across...) I really do like it, Min!

And here's a 3D rendition of this wonderful image!
Any comments and critiques of this 3D conversion are welcomed (still working on refining the techniques !)

Thank you Linda. My efforts with the Kitchen Sink Photography School don't always work, but that doesn't keep me from doing it.

I appreciate the kind words Dave, they come across all in fun, which photography is for me anyway. If it becomes too serious i'd probably give it up. Prepare for more clutter to come...
