Bright Field, Old Church

This is the kind of image I don’t get much of here in England, one taken on an intensely sunny day:

ISO 100 12.1mm f/5.0 1/320sec

But it has been a different type of summer here, one that is warm and very little rain. This photo was taken with my point and shoot. Β I liked the image but did want to edit it a little bit. Β The photo below is what I finished with:

ISO 100 12.1mm f/5.0 1/320sec

The crop was where I started. I wanted to lose the lower left corner of the field and bring the church in just a bit closer. I’ve also used the tone curve to make the colors a bit deeper and I applied a vignette to the corners.

What do you think of the edit, does it retain its sunny day feel? Feel free to leave a comment below.

  1. I definitely think it keeps the sunny day feel. I do like the church just a tad closer, and I really like that the sky seems a little bluer. Seems to me it might have just been another time in the day. Very nice.

    I like your edits – no more brown patch – and the sky has become a brilliant blue matching that bright field of mustard. Very sunny and rich now. Like magic.

  4. The edit has that hazy summer’s heat feel to it as if the viewer is remembering that day in the past. I like that you cropped the original to make the church a bit closer and heighten the attention on the yellow of the flowers.

  5. Well
    When you primed us with the not the norm for where you are – I felt sunny day more – but the shot also had a cooler vibe than big time sunny days – if that makes sense –
    And I like this shot a lot – the house seems in hiding


  6. Yes, good job on the lower left corner. The picture does retain the sunny day feel. I doe wish, however, that there was more horizontal length without cropping out the sky or the field of flowers. Something just shy of being panoramic.
