[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A guy praying in a church.

We don't know what he pray.
But he prayd earnestly.

I believe God is listening his prays, and someday He will respond.

A dramatic capture you have here. The mood and solemnity of the photo is felt indeed. TFS!

great capture and DOF...my only minor comment is that i wish we could see a little bit of the top of his head...the more i look at it the more he just looks headless to me...great heart and feeling...peace***

Howdy SangSu!
Amazing scene. Mysterious atmosphere. Good composition. Good focus. Very good picture.

I like the bluriness in this moody image. Questionable how much "god" will help here, but it surely comforts this man - albeit I am afraid that just by praying, feel helpless and simultaneouly seek help from outside, not much will be achieved than just temporary relief (if any). There is an old, trite but true saying:

"God helps only those that help themselves"

I like your capture of this aspect of the human condition.

nice shot, the blurred background brings the subject up

Me encanta Sergio...
Es la Iglesia del Pilar no?
Excelente idea del blanco y negro y de dejar el fondo barrido para centrar la atencion en el hombre rezando.
Te felicito.
