This image is a photo illustration. Move your mouse onto and off of it to see a direct "before-and-after" comparison with the original photograph. In this instance, the assignment called for illustrating the portico, lobby, and other additions to this church, just prior to a Sunday-morning service, when there were many people arriving. Although many people did arrive, I was unable to get a single shot with more than four or five people in it at a time. Also, while the light at the time was excellent, the sky lacked character, and the patch of grass on the right side was brown. To create this realistic illustration, I had to combine elements from about twenty images.
