We stopped in Graaf Reinet a few years ago which is a town in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. This beautiful church was situated at the end of the high street for all to see.
On this image, I used Topaz impression with some saturation and again used apply image in Photoshop and lowered the opacity.

Peter, lovely symmetry in this image, and what a beautiful church. The textures you achieved throughout the image with Topaz Impression are quite attractive. Very nice painterly presentation.

Got to agree with Ron- really attractive and elegant piece of work. It would be nice to get rid of those white tapes on the left- the "spot healing brush" does that beautifully.

I like this a lot. It's a great structure for sure! Shoot scenes like this relatively often I do have some input on how it could be a lot better in my personal opinion. Shooting this through a gap the gate to avoid the foreground stuff provides less distraction. For shots like this to really add a lot of punch, getting it perfectly level in the horizontal is important and a bit of perspective correction would really take it to the next level. Sorry for the critical nature but it is a critique forum afterall :)
