Basilica of the Annunciation

ISO 100 - 17mm - f/13 - 1/25 - Canon 7D - Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8

 

This church was awesome! There were pieces of art from every nation which celebrates the arrival of the angle to Mary. While it may sound a rather strange and overly supernatural, it is a symbol and story of real tangible Hope coming into the world.

 

I converted this into mono in Lightroom 4. I added some contrast and a blue filter in Lightroom while also adding a gradient to decrease the exposure of the sky.
