By FlawedDesign
A method of deliberately slow and painful execution in which the condemned person is tied or nailed to a large wooden cross and left to hang until dead.

Victims were left on display after death as warnings to others who might attempt dissent. Crucifixion was usually intended to provide a death that was particularly slow, painful (hence the term excruciating, literally "out of crucifying"), gruesome, humiliating, and public, using whatever means were most expedient for that goal.

A crucifix is the main religious symbol for Roman Catholic, and Eastern Orthodox churches, but most Protestant and Oriental Orthodox churches prefer to use a cross without the figure of Christ.

I think the composition is good, but if yuo were trying to emphasize the crucifix I think you should have either zoomed in far enough to eliminate the side of the church thus making everything "larger". If your subject was the church with the crucifix a longer exposure in order to bring some of the detail out would have helped. It is still o good photo.

Quote: I think you should have either zoomed in far enough to eliminate the side of the church thus making everything "larger".

Thanks for your input, I actually had a few different options for this photograph and was a bit indecisive as which to choose. I had a landscape one including the windows down the church and one zoomed in closer, but I quiet liked the darkness framing this one adding a Gothic eeriness. I think a little closer crop would in hindsight have been a good idea!
