A Church Without Wires

St. Paul's Episcopal Church

This is the beautiful St. Paul's Episcopal Church in downtown Columbus. It is such a nice building and the grounds around it are so well kept and it just adds so much to the already beautiful downtown area. As I was going back through old photos I found this one, but there was one thing about it that I hated. THERE WERE POWERLINES EVERYWHERE!!! Though I know that power lines are a needed thing, they can sometimes just get in the way of an otherwise good scene. I run across them all the time and they are very frustrating to deal with as a photographer. But you might be saying "But there aren't any power lines in the photo" with a perplexed look on your face which is slightly tilted to one side in wonder.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret, I often remove power lines from my photos because they are such an eyesore and because I am a bit of a ninja when it comes to using Photoshop as I've been using it for almost 20 years (about 17 to be a bit more precise). However, with this photo I think I removed more wires than I ever have before, but in the end it was worth it as it uncovered a MUCH better scene. In fact I even want to show you the before photo so you can appreciate the work I put into it.

I took this photo back in 2014 and finally edited it today. These folks were very willing to let me photograph them as they played basketball near sunset at the Columbus Lock & Dam.
