Made in Germany 6

A church during the week in a small village on the Northern isle of Sylt. It's a Protestant church as most of the churches in the Northern part of the country are. The red book is the book of hymns, ready for the next church service on Saturday evening or Sunday morning.

The light was pretty bad when I took this picture, so I worked in Photoshop and added two textures by Kim Klassen, first "Silence" and then "Sweet Treat". It gives the church a welcoming warmth.

If you have anything German to share, please leave a link in the comments and we will come and visit.

I would never have known the light was bad if you hadn't mentioned it. Whatever you did, this looks like a warm and welcoming place. Nice work, Carola.

I don't have anything German to share but I just wanted to let you know that I love this photo. And I lived in Germany for 3 years, I should have something!

This photo is gorgeous. It's amazing what you do digitally with your photos. This one is simply wonderful.

And thanks so much for stopping by to wish me a happy birthday. It was very sweet of you. And I hope you had a nice Easter, if you celebrate it.

When I first looked at the image, Carola, I saw tabbed filing folders in a drawer. :)

Interesting layout with the splashes of color against the white. Almost like an abstract painting.
