Gothic Cross

By redstag  
I wanted to create almost a comic book Gothic atmosphere on this shot, heavy sky, dramatic angle etc.
I like this result, but, a plea for help, there are loads of you out there who are great at doing mods, and I think this could benefit from your skills, maybe a lightening strike, or a ghostly figure, perhaps a creature of the night such as an owl or bat.
The challenge is open to you, I would love to see some dramatic mods.
All the best.

Check out the mods, they're brilliant, thanks to Suziblue, Rhiw_com, Kevski and Whoops.

certainly has a gothic feel to it. The comp works but I'm not sure about colour - maybe would be even more gothic in mono

A dramatic capture Jon, nice work.

I've made a little mod, for a bit of fun.

love the angle on this, would also like it as a mono, but still think it's strong in colour

Far be it from me to suggest that you haven't looked in my PF, but...

There are some shots from earlier this year at this location taken at night. Actually not spooky, more just strange to be honest!
Thanks for all the mods and comments. really appreciated.

I think you did a good job, especially with the sky and the angle you took the cross at - like both the mods too!

a great shot, nicely composed, only critism is that the sky is a little burnt out.

I like this loads , compo is perfect as is idea , only thing (not in this image) is be a bit carefull of being so good at your p.s skills that they overpower the mood. The grass is colour distracting while the image is emotion thinking. oh well imho

I really like this, the low angle works wonders and the sky is suitably ominous. Great work. Love the mods too.

Using the contrast of the sky you have achieved a grand detail element of mystic feeling attaches itself to your setting. Beautiful.

Thanks for the mods, Kevski and Whoops. Taken it to a very dark level!
