St Thomas of Harty Church, Isle of Harty, Kent, UK.
The Harty church is probably one of the last buildings to serve the public without gas, electricity or running water (due to its isolated position). Dating back to the 11th century it still holds regular services.
The visitor wandered in from the neighbouring farm, where he failed to impress the chickens with his beauty.

    lovely sight, perspective and compo…you have a wonderful lens. not sure about HDR as it always reminds me of computer game graphics.

  • spasibo, Nikolay!
    HDR gives an image that is close to what our eyes see in terms of exposure. it helps to bring out the details in over-contrasty pictures. just need to be careful to not overprocess it.

    Irina, you kinda sound like a HDR ad:-)))). Honestly, I’ve hardly seen any good results after using it for the reason I’ve already mentioned.
