Processing applied: Had a play around in PS/CS with this shot, adjusted the contrast and cloned out a few obstructions in the foreground, but the biggest change was the sky, I replaced the sky as the original was much less interesting. I've also added some reflections to the windows as they were dark and not very inviting, hope you all like.

Well done Ian. Good shooting and editing. Final shot looks great.

Looks like you are really getting to grips with CS, the added sky looks very natural and adding the reflections to the windows keys it all together nicely, I'm sure the vicar would be interested in having a copy of this to hang in his vestry.
Good work Steve

I like the image, but i think it looks a bit "synthetic"

Great work again in PS/CS I would like to take a few lessons from you Ian....;-)
The picture is very nice and I think it would also make a good one in B&W, IMO a bit more mysterious.
