Paris Tabernacle

CW. The Paris Tabernacle is certainly the prettiest building in the Bear Lake area. It was completed in 1889 by Mormon pioneers.

I don't "process" photos too often, but thought this would look OK with a line drawing technique. Believe it or not, I used to have a darkroom trick that would result in a similar image, back in the olden days of film.
I like the drawing effect with this shot. I think it makes it interesting.

Difficult to critique without seeing the original but guess it is more interesting because it looks like it looks like a pen and ink drawing. I like the shadows and contrasts.

Very nice change of pace Ross. This appears to be a perfect image for the technique. I'll bet you could sell this to many in the congregation.

Love the effect though I'd love to see it with the lens distortion corrected

Love the editing!!!

I like the edited version, but I would also enjoy seeing the original... maybe in a black & white format? The angle and composition are very nice.

@kbird61 Thanks for the fav, Kay. I hope you have been up here to tour the Tabernacle.

@jgpittenger Are you referring to the lean-back from the perspective, Jane? I could have corrected that, and probably should have, but I kind of like the effect in moderation. I don't think I have the ability to effectively correct lens distortion. You have a good eye.

@moxy @macromover @mccarth1 @momzo @leananiemand @rosiekerr Thanks, everyone. This is probably my last daily image on 365, so I wanted to do something different from my usual stuff. I will post an explanation Saturday.

it looks like a beautiful building. Your composition is very pleasing and I really like the editing, too. It's fun to try something different and I think it works very well for this image. FAV
PS - makes me sad to think that this is one of your last daily image here, although I understand. :(

Very cool edit!

@pflaume Thanks for the fav. Lisa. I like this effect because it reminds me of days in the darkroom when it was much more difficult and time consuming to do. Thanks for the kind thoughts.

@skippysue Thanks, Suze. The building is magnificent, and I have even had the privilege of participating in a community chorus performance there. Thanks for your concern, and I am fine, but Linda has some serious problems we need to deal with.

@lily Thanks, Lily. I like this effect, and it is much easier than it looks.

Absolutely fantastic -- I love the pencil sketch look to it.

@taffy Thanks, Taffy. This is surprisingly easy to do, but needs the right subject to work well.

I love this shot and your processing of it. It is a perfect shot for what you did to it.

@darsphotos Thanks, Darlene. It is a magnificent building, and close enough to home that I can photograph it often.

@rvwalker You are welcome, Ross. How cool to have it close to home. You can do so much with it creatively. Love what you did here. Learning a lot from you. Wish I could drive and venture out a bit.
