Very pretty. It looks practically like a twin of the Mission of San Antonio de Padua, my personal favorite (and the location of the first marriage ceremony in California), including the wooded setting. Your mission is in a much better shape, though. Looks freshly refinished.

Anyone interested in California missions, check out this page (http://www.missiontour.org/).

Nice composition, Fred. But the colors seem a little flat. I hope you don't mind, but I gave it a little 'punch'. A quick "levels/contrast", "shadows/highlights", minor saturation, adjustment.

Looks good.

I drive past San Diego de Alcalá so often that I forget it is there. Looks like I have to stop next time and take some pics.

Hey, thank you! I definitely like your version better. :thumbsup:

Imma ask a stupid question: what's a mission? We don't have any in my part of NC.

Very peaceful looking place, Fred :wavey:
