Excellent Americana shot and the sepia touch really gives it an historical look. Nicely done!

Really, really diggin’ this one Derrick, what a fabulous image! I love the nostalgic feel to it with the sepia tones, and that tree really strikes quite the pose beside the church there! Wonderful, my friend!

Thank you Lucas! Hope you do to!
A little of a eerie feel to this photograph but I mean that as a compliment : ) Really like the sepia touch you gave it.

[…] Flint Hills – the only friend an old church on the side of a hill has is a barren tree that stands near it. Derrick Birdsall captures and processes this shot using sepia tones which adds a strong sense of nostalgia to the setting. […]

Oh that sad little swing in the background, I think I hear it squeaking. Beautiful tones and composition Derrick!
