Elvis Presley Memorial Chapel

Pinal County, Apache Junction, AZ Jul 2, 2011 — This Chapel has had remarkable staying power. It has survived two fires, being moved once. It is now a part of a museum dedicated to the movies of the area. The Apacheland Movie Set was the location of numerous films including Charro starring Elvis Presley. The chapel now serves as a wedding chapel like it did while making such TV shows as Have Gun Will Travel .





I imported and tagged the photo with Photo Mechanic. I used Adobe Lightroom for adding color profiles, basic adjustments, and creating TIFFS. I used Photomatix to tone-map the images into an HDR image. I spruced-up the image using the Topaz plug-ins: Denoise, Detail, and Adjust, then touched-up the image using Adobe Photoshop.
