The fg shapes of the white picket fence mimic the white tombstones. The man with his hands behind his back provides scale. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

It's an attractive and picturesque church and a neat graveyard. It looks as idyllic as many old churches and cemeteries in Britain, but it hasn't got the same abandoned atmosphere. "White man's" history in New Zealand is not so old, so this is like ancient history. The photo is well composed with the white wooden fence used as a lower frame. Nice photos in the WS too.

The cemetery and the trees are framing well the church. The point of view is showing the details of the church and of the tombstones. The light is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.

Je ne sais pas si on trouve l'âge d'une église au nombre de morts dans le cimetière. C'est vrai qu'on peut le marcher et regarder les dates sur les pierres tombales. J'aime la petite barrière à l'avant plan.

Hello Malgo, a pretty little church, obviously well cared for, the churchyard so neat and tidy.
The presence of the man adds much to the scene.
It certainly looks like a place worth visiting.
The white fence in the foreground frames the picture nicely.

As European culture is fairly young in New Zealand, it is possible to find buildings from era fairly shortly after Europeans started settling there. Great to see this one in such a good condition. Naturally the church is fairly small as were the settlements. I like the fence framing at the bottom.

As a European it is always funny to read that a building built in the 19th century is the oldest in the town. :)

I posted a photo for you this morning :)
Who doesn't love a good graveyard right? haha
I know I do. you post 3 very good shots, perhaps the close up of the grave is my favourite.
1836 was the first service, thats pretty cool, but certainly not as old as European churches but thats ok. It would be more in line to what we have here in Canada as our oldest as well.
the top of the white picket fence adds a fun aspect and continues with the white colours. nice one.

Skromny architektonicznie kosciolek, ale skoro przetrwal od poczatkow pracy misyjnej to nie dziwi ta pierwotna skromnosc i zapewne funkcjonalnosc.
Ciekawa notka i zdjecia w warsztacie
Balkany robilem na lenia, objazdowka jednoliterowego biura - niestety umknela mi tym razem faza przygotowan, szukania noclegow, miejsc wartych zobaczenia co bywa rownie ciekawe i pouczajace jak sam wyjazd :)

Charmante petite église, un cimetière bien entretenu même si les pierres tombales sont ancienne comme l'église, bien cadrer avec le haut de la barrière

Looking at the inscriptions on the graves would have been fascinating, though very time consuming!
The fence posts give an intriguing f/g to your photograph, almost like a patterned frame!
They do create a good sense of depth to the church and the plethora of gravestones between!
The single figure makes a pleasing m/w stop and ensures that the gravestones are paused upon.
Have a lovely day,

mi piacciono le foto con i cimiteri, possono sembrare macabri, ma io li trovo interessanti, del resto qui si trovano i vari personaggi che hanno vissuto e creato la vita del luogo.

It's a bit unusual to see a church with such a small tower but it is still a very charming sight.
You present the church well together with its green surroundings and with the cemetery in front.
Sharpness and depth are excellent.
Best regards, Paul

Hello MAlgo ,
A beautiful little white church . Even the cemetery is charming.
The presence of the man adds interest to the scene.

It may be a humble little church, but it made history. Were there any Maori names on the headstones? 👌👌
