This is a shot of the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I drive by this church frequently, and I’ve always liked the way it looks when the sun is shining on it in the afternoon. I’m a big fan of contrast and the sharp angles of the building combined with the angle of the sun creates an interesting look.

My goal in processing was to bring out the strong contrast that attracts me to this building. I deliberately darkened the dark side and brightened the brighter side to increase the contrast. I used Silver Efex Pro 2 for the black and white conversion which also helped bring out some of the elements in the sky.

Thoughts? Leave them below!
