The village church

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 29 June 2013 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

St. Peter's church is at the centre of Harton Village, South Shields, a village which at one time was isolated and not conjoined to this metropolis.
It was separated from the villages of Westoe and Cleadon by green fields and agriculture until urban sprawl swallowed it whole after the Second World War.
I think I processed this one using Nik software, Viveza 2 to add a little structure, the NIk Color Efex for the tonal contrast and a little bit of detail extractor.
