This really evoked some feeling in me. Actually, when I saw it I kind of had to pause for a second. It actually made my chest hurt a bit. Excellent composition.

Lol well it is sort of offensive but you definitely got the theme's message across. Interesting concept!

Well an interesting concept to begin with. I would be lying if I said I wasn't offended in terms of the intended theme (although of course there could be multiple themes drawn from this piece depending on the viewer. I didn't catch the intended theme until I read the artist's comment) but the picture composition-wise you did extremely well overall. I agree with =NeoWolf06 that perhaps sepia doesn't quite work for this. Black and white might make the elements stand out a bit more.

thankyou for commenting appreciated :D i see where people are coming from saying make it black and white but i tried this and in my opinion it did not look the business :P

Well, at least you tried it out.
I'm surprised the black and white didn't look any better. Oh well, photography seems to look good whether it's in color, black and white, or sepia.

Personally I think this is a great concept. But you may have had gone a little bit farther even. Burned the book more. Next to that you could've let some of the cigarettes longer. At first I didn't actually notice it were cigarettes (but that could be me).
Overall, I think it's a great artwork!

Nicely exposed and well photographed.
And a very thought provoking subject.
Nice work.

First thing I thought of was a room full of people chatting and smoking and the Bible just lying there with noone giving a damn about it. But tbh I don't really find the pic itself anti religious.

Very original. Pretty brave posting this up as well so kudos to you. I like that even though the colour scheme is quite monochromatic there's still contrast!
