Church on a Hill

Black & white photography seems to add some kind of magic to our world. It simplifies things into shades of gray without the interference of that very loud element, color. This church got my attention because of its high perch that makes it seem like it was looking over the small town like a guardian angel,with the dark clouds in the sky representing evil. When I was recording this scene on film it reminded me of an Ansel Adams photograph titled "Mormon Temple, Manti, Utah". I used a 25 red filter to add contrast to the sky.

Would it be completely irreverent for me to say I like yours better than Ansel Adams'?
