Wonderful church, and I also appreciate the tutorial. The graded bronze effect really enhanced the picture.

My technique for making sepia photos in Photoshop is quite different. I'm going to give yours a try. Your contrast is so nice, my photos often come out muddy.

This photo is excellent in sepia. Great subject choice.

This church is wonderfully edited, the massive building looking so exquisite in an almost bronze tone. We don't see buildings from this era in the USA, so this is a stone treat for our eyes!

That was an impressive church and suitable in sepia.

Thanks everyone:) I am sure your photographs are fine Love2B and I will check out your photo soon:)

Its very old, I would love to go inside it sometime, your welcome Ralph. I cropped the original image slightly because of two distractions either side but I think it reflects its age, might of looked good in HDR too but I didn't have time that day to take 3 exposures.

Have a happy new year everyone and thanks for visiting:)

Thanks Greyscale, I like that Gothic Style of Spire too.
