HDR Chapel

This is one of the incredible old buildings at Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati, Ohio. They used to use it for burials that were close by but I don't think it is used at all anymore. My New Year's Resolution is easy - I don't want to end up here except as a visitor. I had to go today with some bread to check on my buddy the swan. I was getting worried, but finally found him in the lake right behind this chapel - not one of his most frequented hangouts. The lakes are starting to freeze so I was really glad that I remembered the bread today.
The gray is very representative of our weather.
I Love This!!! Fav!!

Fav! You are starting the New Year out with a fantastic photo! Love the architecture (but I totally understand why you don't want to be anything other than a visitor there), the black and white, the HDR and composition!

Wow, what a gothic building! Impressively captured, Cathy.

beautiful moody capture.

It is actually quite scottish looking and also what you find around England! Very ornate to be in an American cemetery but rather nice to have!

Cool shot, Cathy and great editing!

Yes, I've seen chapels like this in Scotland, very dramatic-looking! Great shot and I'm glad you found your lovely swan ok

This is really good editing Cathy, it looks like a pen and ink painting. Fav. A happy new year to you!

Fabulous gothic shot Cathy and I am so pleased your Swan Prince is doing ok. Quite relieved you took bread for him. My daughter Lucy @streetlyend reared a wild duck and released him into the local river, and she still checks up on him from time to time - its wonderful how she recognises Clarence!

Okay, Cathy, I don't have a clue how to do this and am going to have to google this so that I can attempt to learn how to edit and come up with a shot like this before my year is up. This is just gorgeous. Fav for me.

@lyno I was there New Year's Day! See, we could have met at the cemetery.........I found him right at the foot of this chapel, which is further over than I usually see him. I'd taken bread so him and a few of his duck buddies got a little New Year's Cheer. Did you notice that the ponds are freezing over? I have a photo of him in my other album. Such a gray day yesterday I had to do both in B&W

Hello Cathy, greetings from Edmonton Canada. I came across this on the browse page. I love old buildings and cemetries. I have never seen a building this large in a cemetery before. Love the look you used in this shot

This is terrific, Cathy! The HDR really pushes this to the next level! Congrats on the PP with it! Fav!
