Photographer's Note

Hi reader,

This is some small church I saw on Meganissi Island, during the day we visited this neighbourisland of Lefkada.
You'll encounter this church if you drive down from Katomeri, 1 of the 3 villages on Meganissi, to Vathy the main town of the island. (same name is used on Ithaki). The last village I didn't name yet is Spartochori, which is located more to the east.
More details of the island, and it's villages can be found at the info supplied with this shot.
It was not such a sunny day, you see; enough clouds, which made it a nice day (not as hot as the days before, 42 degrees then!). Some breaks in the clouds here and there. On the end of the day my arms got a little burned, I forgot to put sunscream due to the fact that I was only catching sun the minutes the sun broke through. But I was not that badly burned though, lucky me!
(map info available)

I liked this small church, and I think the road is placed nicely, bending and disappearing around the corner. Also liked the sky.
Curious what you think!


[Photo technical info]
17mm, F11, 1/160, ISO-200, Weighted Average metering, EV 0.

[PP in CS2]
Conversion to TIFF first, that's the first time working that way for me! Then :

* Levels and Shadow/Highlight (shadow 2,28,37) (highlight 10,50,35) (midtones +11) on whole image, and on one specific area (church).

* Some saturation adjustments (bit more red and yellow and darkened them, just as blue)

* USM + selective USM.
* Added border + © name.
* Convert to jpeg by 'save for web'
* Resize somewhere in the process.

* And some cloning was done, to remove some wires disturbing the sight. Hope it's done proper!

* Applied despeckle and Gaussian blur selectively.


I hope you like the outcome!
Critiques arevery welcome!
