Nice accompanimrnt old architectural details and nature. Sepia tones work well here

Your sepia treatment ages this composition nicely. One can easily see that nature is slowly reclaiming the old church. Nice job framing the structure between the trees on either side.

Hi Chris - I like the sepia tone to this shot. It gives a venerable look to it. Great sharpness and POV.

I like the effect you adapted to this beautiful capture of this ruins of the church, but frankly, I prefer the colored version!
You gave the proper impresion of a very old structure in sepia, but in color the subject outstands more clearly.
A very sharp presentation with perfect lighting.

Beautiful capture and great atmosphere!
Excellent light with clairity.
Good idea the sepia version, but in the original version you can see better the subject....my opinion of course :-)
Have a nice week-end.

great details with good photo manipulation. you created a somewhat replica of an old picture. just like timeless. the warm colors portray the old style of photos that i used to see in my grandmother's photo album. good composition and POV. well done here sir! thanks for sharing
What a stunning place - wow. I love the fact that ruined villages like this can be left abandoned, in a country like New Zealand "health and safety requirements" would mean that the ruins would be cleared away and no remnant left. :(
I'm not sure that I like the sepia treatment of this one, in my honest opinion it doesn't add to the shot, but detracts, making it duller and visually more busy. The colour shot is far more powerful, giving separation of foliage and stone, and would be made even better by a gradient or post-work to subdue the sky a little.
I'm also not convinced by the POV. While I guess your intention was to add to the sense of entropy by including the overhanging branches, to me they conflict too much with the bell-tower, which, like some last desperate Finger of Defiance, should be allowed to project into the sky uncontested.
I envy the photo opportunity though - thank you for sharing this! I hope you're not too upset by my honesty. :)

What an amazing sight, and site!
I love to explore such antiquities and I'm sure you were pleased with this opportunity.
I'm sorry but I can't agree with your decision to present it in sepia. To me, the w/s looks wonderful, revealing the relationship between dereliction and thriving vegetation. I like the pov, using the trunk as a natural border, and an initial lead towards the ruin.

Merveilleuse image, quel ensemble, cette roche envahoie par la végétation et rendu entre le vert et la peirre, de toute beauté.
Bravo et amitié
