  4. I like the white vignette. Is it still in use?

    • The building was moved from Milwaukee to Old World Wisconsin which is a collection of historic building from around Wisconsin. So in a sense it is still in use as a museum building.

    The simple color palette and the soft white vignette wok nicely with this subject.

    The white vignette compliments the white in the image. The church, fence and clouds all give it a sense of purity.

  10. Beautiful processing and choice of vignette for this old church. We have some rural churches in our area that are simple like this and which are being closed due to lack of priests.
