Beautiful details captured on this old church building. Taken under a very interesting sky....gorgeous natural colors in the sky with a beautiful cloud formation creating a nice movement in your photography. Your light and shadows are perfect as well.....bringing all that storytelling to life. Very well photographed with good focus and good exposure and white balance and depth of field. The stories this church could tell. Outstanding work and thanks for sharing.

Great scene here Charles. You have captured the personality of this old multipurpose building. I think old wooden structures have such a special charm about them and you have captured it perfectly. Nice sharp focus and overall composition. The blue sky with those nice puffy clouds completes this nostalgic scene. Well done Charles ~ Steve

OMG! Looks like it is going to crumble anytime. Hopefully it is not being used for any activity now! You have shot it well from a good position.The light and shadows, colours and the composition have worked out well. Good effort!

I just love this old building.
Do you care if I turn it into a
Haunted House for Halloween? Its the perfect photo to add bats, a moon,
tombstones, etc.
Only if its OK...Please let me know. I love the detail and clarity in this excellent capture.

Charles,
A beautiful picture of this "Old" wooden Church, School & community building in need of some TLC to it's roof to bring it back to it's glory days, it's seems a shame to let it just rot away? Beautiful atmospheric composition with the blue sky & high flying clouds making the perfect back drop, taken with superb camera techniques & sharp focus.
Susan

I wish you could have won a contest with the remarkable photo! I occasionally see structures like this while driving, but the road is too narrow to safely park, or the land is fenced and I would be trespassing, etc. Your angle of shooting is perfect, and the tones of gray and black against the sky make this an outstanding image in your hands.

What a gorgeous part of history. I love this. It's well focused, centered in the photo. You can see quite clearly the deterioration within the scene. Well done, thanks for sharing it.
