Day 120 – Worshiping in the Foothills of the Rockies   3 comments

© mike moruzi | insearchofstyle.wordpress.comThe Morleyville Church, east of Banff, was built in 1875 by John McDougall and family. John’s father, Reverend George McDougall worked with the local indian tribe, the Stoney people, introducing them to Christianity. The church was built as part of his commitment to the Stoney people to provide them with access to Christianity. The church stopped being using in 1921 when a newer one was built nearby. In 1952, the church was restored and is now used for special occasions and services.

Processing notes: I cropped out the boring bits of sky, then cranked up the tonal contrast in the ground, fence and church using Color Efex Pro. I used Viveza to darken the sky and Silver Efex Pro to convert to B&W (with a red filter) and to then partially restore colour to the image.
