Again thanks to Judy Clark aka Ladybug aka "Bubble Eyes," (she who has carpenter's levels for eyes) who suggested a tweak that made this image sing.

Wow, from me, too! This is an impressive shot...and an impressive place.
I guess I am adjusting to, and now rather enjoying, your move to the east coast....
a lot of new sights to see. And I love seeing through your lens.

fabulous - I love the off-center perspective, rather than the symmetry that is typically displayed. I am curious about the history of the flags there...

Blushing, I have to say this image does "sing", John. From the hymnals and Bibles, red seats, repetitive shadows down the center aisle, the arches, and flags, all the way to the altar and stained-glass window, this is a five-star x 50, photo. We have dear friends in Litchfield, whose grandson is a cadet there, and I can almost hear all those male voices singing in that gorgeous place.
