Hi everyone and hope all are fine! Well i wrestled with the idea of posting this one and am open to sugestions on it but my wife thought i should as she liked it. I took this one this weekend at the wedding i went too.it was overcast outside and the lighting was just right to show the patterns on the stained glass and silouhetted the cross and Jesus with shadows which i liked. Also liked the geometry of the glass window as it was a circle and the frames within made a frame for the cross. Any help to inhance it will be appreciated!

stay well

You have captured some lovely warm lighting on the figure Tony, which gives it such a great lift. This together with the contrasting colours of the stained glass window gives it all the religious impact, I guess you were looking to project. Very nice indeed. Good work.
Stay well.

Well exposed to keep just enough detail on the crucifix without blowing out the colours of the stained glass. Well seen and captured. Bruce

Tony, this is a good shot in what must have been "not the best of" conditions. However I have posted a mod that you may or may not like.
