St. Augustine's Church, Flimwell, East Sussex. I don't usually 'do' churches, but was drawn by the shapes and muted colours above me in this gallery. To bring out the details, I've used a little Topaz. Thanks for looking and for your time. Comments and criticisms are, as always, welcome.

Cool symmetry relieved by significant little details stepping out of line. The bell-rope, the ladder, that wonderfully scrapeable peeling paint. That's what brings this to life.

I had been going to make Moira's comment but see that she got there first Blush
This needs to be viewed Large as the flaking is scarcely apparent in the thumbnail - but the symmetry is!

I am drawn immediately to that gorgeous flaking paint brought to life by that light. This is an utterly beautifully composed and exposed shot, Ann.

Bravo!

Some neglect and lack of care, seems most churches are afflicted by this.
Can't beat good composition and some nice detail Ann.
