Many people photograph this church but all have to deal with the same problem – a telephone pole and wires going across the front of the church. Well, I’ve taken the liberty of removing them.
Not an old church, built in 1851, but it’s Gothic style makes it interesting in the landscape.
Love the way it sits on the hill with the tree…
I think the tree was planted well after the church was built but it was an inspired planting.
you are most welcome
Well, it’s old by USA standards, anyway!
🙂 – For me, churches don’t start to become interesting until they are at 300 years old.
somehow the church looks like it’s squatting – maybe because of the shape of the nearby tree…
anyway, like it a lot 🙂
I’ve taken out many a wire and pole … and garbage cans, and signs, and people and …
I find it funny that painters often put poles and wires in their paintings and we do our best to take them out.
Yes, but they do need to be looked at because sometimes they can add a positive to the composition … and I’ve seen some very interesting shots recently in blog surfing of JUST wires and poles that I’ve quite liked. Now, who would have thought …
Yeah…. away with the telegraph poles etc. They weren’t there in 1851, I wager. A very ncie scene and all the better for the removal of the clutter.
Absolutely – it wouldn’t have taken much to dig a hole and bury the cables either.
Yep, I remove’em too! Great shot!
Superb composition, Stephen.
All the better for removing them. A really nice composition and a nice conversion.
But are they gonna make you put ’em back? 🙂
🙂 – I think they’ll certainly notice they have gone missing!
A wonderful image showing the church nestled into the landscape like that. Is Blubberhouses the name of the parish? Interesting!
It is. The ‘blubber’ isn’t from whales but a distortion of original Anglo-Saxon – or so the theory goes.
Thanks Stephen. Interesting!
Nice removal job and excellent processing – it has a very pleasing vintage feel to it.
It would be kind of interesting to see a before and after. It does look really great in this presentation.
Thank you. I know if I had taken the crow out, I’d have spent several minutes messing about to see if it would fit in a better position!
