    The sky is as gloomy as the old church, Terence! Well done.

  • I really got lucky with the sky. If it hadn’t been cold and we were running late, I might have had Susan stand in the window for one round of shots so I could have used her as a ghostly image.

    Oh, not true. I love this image. You do such good work and I am partial to the old and time worn. Always a pleasure to feature you in my groups.

    I’ve got to agree with Sheryl’s last comment! This is a stunningly beautiful capture! Congratulations on your feature, Terence!

  • Thanks, Greg. I am sometimes a bit hard on my own work. I am a photographic perfectionist and often go to the same subject time and time again until I get the shot I love. Do a search on turnersville bank and you can see for yourself!
