    Had this one kicking around for a while now, but never posted it. A fence from a downtown church, that is just amazing to see. I wish the background was not so cluttered.

    Another one from my , "Im not sure what Im gonna do with" folders
    I drive by this one every night. I caught this on a night, when the sun was getting ready to set. Im not sure about the crop. I had to eliminate a fence that surrounds the church. oh...not the same fence as above:D

    You're right, the bg is cluttered. But, you did a good job of showing us the detail in the fence :thumbup: and it's awesome! It looks big. How tall is it?

    I think I would like the second without the cross? The compo of the flags fading out to the left...I like the emptyness on the right? Just a personal thing I guess :D

    Thanks woodsac. The fence is about 8'(?) high. It surrounds the church, which has a very "gothic" feel to it. I might see if I can dig up the coloured version, and repost it. Just one of those "unsure " feelings I have with these two shots.
    Thanks for your comments. I appreciate them.

    woodsac has a point with the cross. I would like just the empty space, kind of adds to the evening feel.:p

    No way, the cross makes the second shot! I really like it. I wouldn't change it at all.

    i really like the cross idea at the second shot too....i would do something with it ,tho, cause now it looks a bit 'copy and pasted' for me, but generally i think that its good that its there...
    love the first one, youre master of the rhythmes, Chiller!-:)

    Thanks everyone for your comments. I appreciate all of them.
    This is another coloured version of the first shot. Im leaning toward the coloured shot, and not the b&w now

    This is the same fence a little further down where it meets the church.

    thanks again

    hey chiller, interesting shot as always...
    i agree bout the first being a bit distracting, the b/w conversin is awesome toh
    the second, love the light! love the exposure! either ways it would make a great picture... i like it like this too :)
    i prefer the b/w version of #3
    and absolutely love the vintage feel in #4, beautiful architecture :D
    thanks for sharing these :D

    So you were on your "vanishing point"-trip when you took these? ;)
    I like them both, but must say the greater contrast between the green of the hedge and the fence makes the fence stand out more in the colour version. Therefore I think I am leaning towards that one, too (and not because the hedge is green, though you might think so ;)).

    I am unsure about the white cross in that flag photo.
    It is a nice juxtapose, indeed, and I accepted it as that right from the start. But after I read that others think it might be better not to have the cross in the photo, I have tried visualising that and it would be ok, too... Hmph :scratch:
