Saint John the Baptist at Night

St. John is one of the few churches that is well lit at night. Unfortunately the power lines that grace the front of the building during the day do not leave at night. I used PhotoShop to remove no less than 8 power lines for the daytime pictures. I did not PS these out. I'll worry about that if I ever print them.

I made several attempts at trying to include part of the cemetery that comes right up to the back of the church. I played around with using my headlights but came up empty in the end. Taking pictures at night can be just as frustrating as it is rewarding.

It looks like I used a star filter on these but the star effect is the result of a long exposure. These were taken with an ISO 200, F/16 and 4 second exposure.

Thanks Talia,

I thought it was a pretty cool effect for not using a star filter.
