a photo from just about a year ago (6/10/19) while on a roadtrip through the midwest. pretty sure this was north dakota, and if memory serves i believe i added in the clouds in photoshop. the sky was already blue, just cloudless.

Like this a lot Loki, the building is in a perfect state of disrepair and you captured & processed it just to my taste.

Well done. I am sure some might say it would be better in the golden hour, but this works really well as is.

The processing was done very well, I couldn’t tell it was a composite.

Very nice. Like the composition, and it sits well in the frame. For my personal tastes, it's a little on the bright side - but that's just me...

Echoing all of Pete's comments above including maybe just a tad bright and I can't decide but it appears there might be just the slightest of perspective distortion on the building. I love old buildings, and you found a jewel here!

pretty sure the clouds were shot that same day, a few hours earlier and more than a few miles west.

thanks. it would work in b&w too. i keep the prairie churches in color with similar processing since i've got a collection of church photos.

thanks pete. i try to keep these types of shots looking light and airy.

thanks southern gent. the tower isn't really connected to the church anymore. the bottom of the tower isn't straight, and neither is the top but in a different way. halfway up is pretty straight, at least the verticals are, the horizontals naturally slant left. i did what i could to straighten as much of the tower as possible in ps without causing the church building to get out of shape.

In that case extremely well done!!! I would have never dreamed all that was going on!!!

Love the building but as you say yourself it's crying out to be the centrepiece of some cool astro, golden hour or twilight shoot. A wonderful find.
