Square in name only

By javam    
Another mono conversion, but something more classically styled than yesterdays upload.

A picture of people gathering for the Pope's appearance in June of this year.

I thought there was enough interest in frame with St Peters and the Clouds so I have attempted to remove detail from the crowd with a motion blur effect.

Best viewed large.

The way you've done this really puts the place in its natural environment. Almost like it is 'under God' so to speak. it is a good effect.

Hmm, yeah I think it works, wasn't quite sure about the blur but viewed large it works really well. Great sense of people shifting and moving. Fantastic sky too. PAul
