After our sunrise shoot on Hunting Island, my February workshop in South Carolina headed inland for some sightseeing. Our first stop was the Chapel of Ease Church ruins on Saint Helena Island. The chapel was constructed in the 1740s using a form of concrete called “tabby,” composed of lime, sand, and oyster shells.
The chapel was partially destroyed in 1886 by a forest fire so only the tabby and brick walls remain.
Because of the wide dynamic range of mid-morning light, I processed these images in Photoshop with the Photomatix Tone Mapping plugin. I corrected geometric distortion Adobe Camera Raw.
