Rosary church at Shettihalli was built around 1860 by French missionaries. When the Gorur dam was built, the entire village of Shettihalli relocated and the church was left behind - submerged in water for most part of the year!
When we visited Shettihalli on our way back from Hoysala village after a blogger's get together, the water levels were low. But, the effect of water was to be seen. The church is dilapidated, the ground around it covered with green grass and the area closer to the river cracked.
The picture is taken using the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L lens at its widest focal length. I used Av mode at f/6.3, ISO-400 for a 1/60s exposure.
Even though, this frame was tall and a candidate for vertical framing, landscapes usually look better with a horizontal frame. So, it would have been foolish not to have taken a few shots with a horizaontal frame - even with some additional distractions in the frame. I used Av mode and ISO-400 for this frame as well, but added a -1 Ev compensation to bring out the clouds behind the church. This also allowed me to have an even higher DoF at f/9 with an exposure of 1/80s.
