Thanks so very much!  I shot a series for a friend that was used for a Lenten presentation.  This one of Christ painting has always been one of my faves from the series.

Appreciate the add to your favourites as well! (and love your avatar, BTW - my son is a HUGE Transformers fan)  :)

*thumbs up* :D I love Ultra Magnus! No problem, I'm a huge fan of using contrast to setting a tone for a photograph (some people use it to be dramatic and it just fails.)

This was shot against a crisp, blue sky.  When I did the post-processing in Photoshop I used the blue filter to take the colour all the way to black.  I love the way it turned out.  :)

Deteriorating cemetery sculptures such as this one are just lovely if you catch them in the right light. Playing around with different filtering ideas I hit upon a combination that drops the sky to darkness, which I think makes the subject matter that much more dramatic. Thanks so very much for adding my images to your favourites! :bow:
