    One of my favorites:



    Old Southeast Church - Brewster, NY
    Built 1794


    Unfortunately, one of the large trees came down in a recent storm.
    Sorry, I don't have camera / lens / film data.

    Very nice Dennis. I like the shadow on the church. Thought there was 3 trees at first. Perfect time of day for the shot to get that lined up nicely. Tonal values in the sky offer a nice contrast to the bright church.

    Thanks, Bryan.
    It really did look like there were 3 trees at the moment. That's what caught my eye.
    The light was quite wonderful - late in the day, low angle autumn light.
    Any other time, the sun's angle would not have been so perfect as to cast a shadow on the building creating the appearance of a 3rd tree.

    Two interiors from the First Congregational Church of Chester (NJ). "The founders of the First Congregational Church were descendants of the English Puritans who first settled in Long Island, NY. The First Congregational was organized in 1740, and the first house of worship was erected in 1747. The current building was built in 1856, and the pipe organ was purchased and installed in 1873." (excerpts from church pamphlet).

    Both images are scans from HP5+ negatives developed in PMK, taken with Schneider 80XL lens on a Canham DLC^2 4x5. I will be making "wet" 11x14 prints in my darkroom later.

    Love the trompe l'oeil in chancel area.
    The horizontal level is somewhat bothering.

    Doug, Orgraph: Thanks.
    Doug: I used the "grid" option on my Photoshop scan of the interior, and it looks squared up to me; of course when I exposed the sheet, I used the levels on the rear standard to set the verticals and horizontals as best I could. Could you give me a little more insight on what you are seeing in the horizontal level?

    Also, since you commented on the troupe de l'oeil painting, here is the commentary from the church's website: "The Trompe l'oeil painting, a series of 12 columns marching back through the scene in perspective and said to represent the 12 disciple or pillars or the church." Amazingly, it had been painted over with other scenes, and was found and restored during renovations

    Peter
    At first sight it does look out of horizontal, but a careful eye-scan shows that not to be true.
    My opinion is that it's due to the dis-symmetry of the chandelier chains creating an optical illusion.
    You're good, no worries

    Peter, I like the first image, to me it is well executed. The chandelier arms do give a bit of illusion of non-horizonality.

    The second image is a little busy. The perspectives of vertical pipes and the oblique view of the cantor's podium seem to be in conflict.
