Hello, Jose -
Excellent image - I particularly like the way light seems to emanate from the hidden face of the priest. The silk of the robe looks soft and tactile. The simplicity of the chamber and the monochrome presentation really add to the spiritual feel of the image. Very nicely done.

This is a most accomplished image. Creative composition is one of it's strengths together with perfect lighting. An evocative image which asks the viewer questions - there not too many of this quality on TL.

Olá Jose,
Gostei muito da composição e ponto de vista. O P&B funciona muito bem, valorizando o contraste entre roupas do padre e luz ambiente.
Excelente foto.
Grande abraço

Olá José,

O enquadramento, a cor, a luz e a composição foram bem conseguidas.
Muitos parabéns!

Hi Jose,
I hope you had good Summer!
Nice to see you are back!
Unusual composition for this one.
You chose to show the back and the lower head of the priest!Like this, you gives a strong impact at the image enhancing the sense of the prayer which must be humble and inner.
Wonderful light and sepia conversion.
Bravo! Annie

HI Jose
The angle is most fascinating and well tought, you get the moment of "recueil". The lights enhancing the back of the priest's robe is most efffective.
