Church with Fisheye
Lens: DA 10-17 Camera: K-X Photo Location: Elk Mountain PA ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/180s Aperture: F16 

Fisheye at 10mm. Bright conditions with the snow. I shot at +1 if I'm not mistaken.
Composition wise I still have a tough time with things. I tried using the rocks as the first third. Does that seem to work?

I would try a vertical crop without the trees on the left, and level the horizon a bit. And blow off your sensor :-)

Deiberson,

I really like the shot. While you could perhaps make some small changes to it, I think you captured an awesome picture here. The composition is quite good. The white snow and painted church building against the blue of the sky makes for a very pleasing contrast. I think the low angle and fisheye brings the entire picture together. Very nicely done. Congrats on a really nice photograph.

I'm not sure the foreground rocks are necessary for the fish eye capture. Extreme fish eyes should just have the one subject to focus on, and so I'd be more inclined to consider a closer up shot of the church itself without the trees and the pathway would be more striking a composition and image of the church. As is, my eyes keep coming back to the foreground rocks rather than appreciating the church.

Deiberson - great shot and what was meant by clean your sensor is the right side of the picture just above the church in the blue sky you have two big dust spots. I like the angle and the fisheye works well

Try to recover some of the white in the church, but still, it's a tricky exposure and you did well. To me, there's a blue cast in the picture, I dunno. Maybe you can make the picture a teeny bit warmer?

Good subject though, lots of good detail.
