Our Father

By tonymarq
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 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

What a stunning shot, this really stood out.

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.

You did a great job with this Tony. I think you got the exposure just right for the stained glass and Jesus.

This looks great Tony. You got the exposure just right, I like how Jesus is just highlighted and not entirely in the dark. Nice work!

Great background, looks like some cubisitc abstract art. The exposure is just right and I like the repeat of the cross in the bg too.

I find it hard to imagine what could be done to improve this image Tony. It's photographically excellent, and emotionally powerful.

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.

Hi Tony
Interesting shot, I'm pleased that many liked it too.
Please, forgive me this note, Tony, but if you mean to say Our Father about Jesus Christ, then the photo should be named :The Son

Works really well, Tony, and it can't have been easy to get such a good exposure on a backlit subject.
