extreme processing

window of St. Nicholas church, originally uploaded by Sophie_vf.

I dunno. Is this the photography/processing equivalent of knitting a uterus, or inventing a butter chicken/tater tot casserole?

Actually, even if it's processed more than I normally like, I think I like this better than either of those hypothetical things. This is a restored church at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village near Edmonton, but it was one of the buildings closed the day we were there. My husband and I walked around trying to peek in the windows, and it was hard to get a shot, partly because I'm short and this was way over my head. I like the way this preset made the cloud reflections look a little like smoke wisping up from the candles inside the room.

that blue is gorgeous! and even it the processing has been pushed it gives the feeling of the intensity of the sky here.
