Good morning everyone,

I found this cross in an antique shop a few weeks ago, it is rather poignant being made out of nails, however what made me attracted to it the most was the fact that some one obviously took great comfort from holding it as it as the tarnish is worn away where the centre of the cross is from constant touch.

Tried to give this image a bit of a cinematic feel - I hope you approve.

Thank you as ever for your comments, votes and support - they are very much appreciated.
Best wishes - Heather

I like the picture you've created and the thought the cross is well used. A true sign of faith.

What a great find Heather! Lovely to think of someone holding it and praying. Like how you have caught the light and the bokeh in the background. Very well done. Smile

well heather this is very ,very good , the cross is outstanding but so is your choice of background detail and the tone works a treat . dof is perfect i think for drawing your eye to the cross and the lighting works well , my only criticism would be the slightly over exposed areas on the left hand side of the cross and top of the chain loop . Being very hard on you as these are minor points in what for my opinion is a near on perfect shot , one to be proud of i think . Kel

Beautiful tone and contrast. I love the softness of the light, and magical DoF. I have an old Rosary that is has a patina and wear that comes from years of devotion. and it is also a testament to a lifetime of faith. phil.
