light of all

light of all

..it seems i’ve been bitten by the tweakies again.. the sun on the light post was just too good to pass up so i tweaked away (or at least attempted to.. 😀 )

..this here’s the arlington street church..

Arlington Street Church is a Unitarian Universalist church located in Boston, Massachusetts. Founded in 1729 as the “Church of the Presbyterian Strangers”, it became independent in 1787, taking on a Congregational model. In 1803, it called William Ellery Channing as its minister who defined “Unitarian Christianity” and launched the Unitarian movement, making the Arlington Street Church one of the first to define itself as Unitarian. On May 17, 2004, the church was the site of the first state-sanctioned same-sex marriage in the United States. (more)

..and, if you were wondering about that blue cast.. yeah.. it’s deliberate..

Great perspective. Nicely framed. I like how this church appears embraced by the buildings around it and the contrast between all of the buildings with that one modern structure. And the light…both the “blue cast” and lamp and sun, make this really interesting.

I like the light-obscured sun and the way you’ve opened the shadows up and made them nicely visible. It’s an elegant, old church with a marvelous steeple. I like your manipulations!

The blue cast is *very good*. I love the way buildings like this can sit in American cities with so much space around them and be so proud on the landscape… The car going past the pedestrians gives a nice touch of motion blur as well. Good stuff, Rian 🙂

you often find an original way to present buildings – like here the lamp is an interesting addition and could be seen as a comment on the church and it’s connection to light.

is good. is good. i’ve gone from photoshop noob who just wanted to try all the filters at once and thought the result was sheer genius to film mathematician who believed that if you couldn’t do it with chemicals and a perfectly timed exposure it wasn’t worth doing. i think this is awesome. i like the effect, the drama, the particular composition with the light in the scene. its brilliant. very nice.

I like this blue haze, that ties together the different parts of this composition, which have not really any common point except the lighting. Fine one
