St. Peter's under snow

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 1 February 2013 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

St. Peter's church in Harton Village, South Shields under a decent blanket of cold snow.
Processed first with the Lucis Arts plug in, then the black and white conversion was done with Nik Silver Efex, before a white vignette was added for the corners and edges.

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: Here's a copy of the original, straight from the phone. It was all a bit too blueish for my liking.
