Three of a Kind

By Goggz
I went out last night hoping to get a sunset. Yes, you can laugh at my folly if you like....

It was very misty and, as I wandered around looking for a viewpoint, just after twilight I stumbled across this little chapel in the process of being converted into a home. It struck me that, as religion, the telephone kiosk and postal services are all undergoing tremendous change and are seemingly in decline, it might be an interesting little study of the three, hence the hamfisted attempt at making them stand out.

I've cloned out a few wires and deepened the sky a bit. Used a gradient map to convert to mono.

4.5 sec f8 ISO100 40mm

Hope it gives you food for thought in these changing times and, as always, comments & critique very welcome.

CHeers, Goggz

right up my street - love the selective colour - especially the lights - I don't know why but it makes me think of Dylan Thomas...
