The peninsula Valdes is visited by tourists that want to see some the the sea life which is abundant along the shores of the two gulfs on opposite sides of the peninsula,sea lions, penguins and whales are some of the main attractions. Back in 1779 Fort San Jose was established here in this rather isolated location, the chapel was built soon after but in 1811 it was destroyed by the indigenous people, it was attacked during a Sunday service & everybody inside perished.
A new chapel has been built, exactly in accordance to the original plans, the closest town is aprox. 100 Km away.The Chapel is facing the Atlantic ocean with an island in front which is an ideal habitat for thousands of birds.

Hi Gus - interesting one but probably needed a bit more work (exposure, brightness) to bring up the surrounds of the chapel. Street photgraphy on Tuesday - hope to see you there.

nice the view of the strange chapel facing the Atlantic ocean.I like its shape as the good placement in the frame.

The Ws you had posted, make a lot of justice to this photo, gave the original what should it looks from step one.
Looks as a unique edifice, no decorations on walls, no artistic elements attached - but the simple as it is - gave a good texture to the whole.
Good morning in AU,

La soledad de este grandiosa paisaje, hace mas impactante la presencia de la capilla, que despues de leer tu interesante nota adquiere mas relieve.
La composicion es magnifica, tal y como han comentado algunos otros amigos, con un poquito mas luz adquiere una mayor dimension. Buen trabajo.
Pasa un buen dia.
Saludos muy cordiales.
P/D. Las fotos de Canarias aun tardaran un poquito en estar preparadas, pues ademas me gusta documentarlas y estas semanas las tengo muy complicadas. Gracias por tu interes.

This is a superb photo. It's composed expertly and has a really interesting subject and colours. I've read your replies to a few of the comments and agree that it's a little dark. Valter's Workshop really brings out the beauty in your photo and I think you both should be congratulated.
