St. Mark's Parish was organized on December 12, 1853, and is the oldest church in Palatka. Records show, however, that Episcopal services were conducted here as early as 1846. Construction on the building was begun in the Spring of 1854 and the first service held later that year. The Bronson House nearby was also built in 1854. Judge Isaac Bronson, along with 18 others, including Judge James Burt and William D. Moseley, first governor of Florida, made up the committee who decided to build this house of worship. Its Carpenter Gothic styling was used for many other churches in this area.

Good light, sky and composition.

A very good use of the light on this church. The angle of the shot with the framing by the tree is quite interesting. The colors on this blue sky are splendid and the image has great sharpness.

The trees are framing well the church. The corner point of view is showing a double perspective of St-Mark church. the late afternoon light is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

Vraiment bien conservée ou plutôt rénovée pour une vieille église et la qualité d'image nous la montre bien. Excellente prise de vue, bonne composition et parfait rendu des couleurs.
Félicitations!... et toutes mes amitiés,

Love the clean chrisp lines of this charming withe chapel and how well they along with the red roof contrast with the vivid blue sky.
The giant oak renders tranquil shadows on this lovely scene.
jadesgran (3367) 2011-04-11 22:37
I like the way you have used the tree on the right to frame the roof of the church.Very sharp and taken at a complimentary angle.

une photo très propre et nette, super bien exposée qui allie les couleurs bleues, vertes et rouges et des blancs parfait.
Excellent choix de POV et cadrage.

This is a fine capture of the old wooden church. Well chosen angle for the shot makes this nice composition with the bell tower placed in a good position in the frame. Some days ago a wooden church from 1760 burned down in Norway, a sad story. It might have been saved if they had installed an automatic sprinkler system. Let`s hope at least that the security of this church has been taking care of in a good way.
Very nice work, Asa!
Best regards, Erling

A well framed shot of this attractive church. The lighting is appealing and the image has very good tonal contrast. The detail in the architecture is well rendered with good sharpness.
Sergiom (40207) 2011-04-12 5:26
J'aime beaucoup le cadre que l'arbre fournit à l'image, ce qui lui donne une belle profondeur. L'église fournit une belle ligne diagonale qui profite de la belle lumière.

this is a beautifully composed shot of this pristine little church. Dazzling detail and colours with a wonderfully controlled light and shadows. Perfect!

A very good POV with the church placed as a diagonal in your composition. Very good and strong colours and a beautiful harmony between the deep blue sky and the red roof. Interesting note.

The POV is perfectly chosen to create an excellent pespetcive on the red roof , and to place the cross of the church tower under the branches . Also , the combination red-blue-white-green is really attractive .
