Hi, I like the light on it the colours and the leading line.
I find that the church in this picture here is better presented proportionally if compared with the icy picture taken earlier. Voted.

After making a comparison between your previous variants I think the light works better in this variant as it warms up the Reed Bed and the Kent Peg Tiled Roof quite beautifully.

Stunning colours. HDR like, very effective

Spot on perfection !. The church sits nicely in the frame, with things going on that adds lots of interest such as good lead in lines on reeds and water, light on church is perfect, bank on right pointing back to the church and the sky's not too fussy either leading the viewer back to the church. Excellent complex composition.

It does look like a house but its a small church and still holds regular services (worshippers are required to bring their own wellies)

The frost has largely melted but the compensation is the sumptuous colour of the church and that roof. Still good lead in depth fom the stream but the reeds lead you to the curch very effectively too. I just wonder if the sky is a bit too dark at the top now but it does give an appropriate halo effect to the church! I think it's my favourite so far Smile

Good point re the sky Alan. I did actually process another version of this ( although I think it was from a different file ) with the sky lighter at the top. I just think that the darker sky does concentrate the eye onto the subject a little better and provides more atmosphere.
