    Thanks Jade!

Thanks mrsawyer, I was hoping to catch some nice smooth cloud movement but I will have to wait until it warms up here where I am (Edmonton Alberta.) to get the nice fluffy clouds that really streak well with a long exposure. They just aren't the same in the cold for some reason.

Thanks Adirondack Gal, I haven't been able to find any info on this place I just happened to stumble across it. When the snow is gone I will venture in further and see what I can find.

    Great start and a great finish with this image. The more I look at it, the more I like it. I would like to know the details on this church.. seems like there should be a story with it.

    Great start! Congratulations on your strong showing. I never would have thought of using a 60 sec exposure on this scene.

    Love this.

Just want to confirm: you used a 60s exposure? This must have been quite dark.

    Nicely exposed snow and the framing of the church suits the image. Good Luck.

    There is so much I like about this. The lighting is perfect on the church. The sky is perfect, the snow has depth and shape and the bushes and trees on the side are darker but still have lots of detail. I even like that the perspective is "off", because the trees leaning in to the church accent it nicely.

    Absolutely beautiful image. It tells a story. I see the headstones/markers in the background. This looks to be a small church or the like. Excellent work on the composition and the exposure.

    OK - Super photo - love it but what's the story here? Why the single grave out front? Is it "Last one out turn off the lights" LOL
I like the tones here and the composition gives me the feeling of nature gradually encroaching on the old church.
