I like the way the forms of clouds mirror the form of water.

Thanks and yeah, me too! I had to stand in the creek to get it to line up right. :)

I think the first and last work the best as far as aesthetics go. Love the river shape in #1. Nice series and having done an aerial shoot myself recently, it was probably pretty fun too!

Thank you!
The scenes were quite nice but I was in a regular airplane with all the downsides: no control over the position, crappy windows with blurred periphery. So the fun quotient was not that high, more frustrating to see the good scenes but knowing I won't get the most of them.

Ah yes, I'm familiar with that variety too. Much less satisfying! Considering the changes you did very well.

Pukwana, SD
St. Procopius Church

"Retired" Catholic Church several miles from any dwellings, five miles south of Pukwana.  The church still has one service a year, on the Sunday before Memorial Day.  I believe the church founders were Serbian.  It was built in 1891 to replace a church that disappeared during a tornado, and never received electricity.  The church was in active use until the early 1990s, heated with a wood stove during winter.

Camera:  c.1925 Gundlach Korona 5x7.  Lens:  c.1862 Voigtlander Petzval FL=12 inch (300mm).  Wet plate shot on black tin, f16 and 2s exposure.

Badus, South Dakota
St. Ann's Catholic Church

Built in 1884 by Swiss settlers.  Church is now "retired" but still holds a service on St. Ann's feast day.  There once was a town built around it but all is now gone.  Camera was Chamonix 045n 4x5.  Lens:  1870s McCollin Orthoscope (rapid rectilinear)  FL= 12 inch.  Wet plate exposure:  4s @ f16.

Kent,

I think your use of "classic" equipment and techniques works well for these "retired" churches.
It really enhances the feeling of moving back in time.
