[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We went to see the "Black Jesus" the statue that is supposedly "haunted" in Oakwood Cemetery in Huntsville. It is the grave site of Rawley Rather Powell who died in 1923 at the age of 5. Now, I am sensitive to this type of thing and didn't feel anything there but peace. So it's a buncha hooey!... But my sister brought two rosaries and a little football for him. We placed the rosaries on the statue and took some photos. It was a very nice cemetery. Sam Houston is buried there also.

I admire the strong mood you have captured in this scene, Linda B-)

Perfect exposure and amazing sharpness with nice dramatic mood in here.
Color contrasts are fantastic and light is well handled.
Great job!

Kind regards,

Hello Linda

An awesome image of Faith and Love. Your note indicates a certain positive outlook on the state of life and thereafter. Nice. How manyb takes did it take to get it just right?

Hi Linda.

I like your notes to this, very interesting, I like this image of yours even better. The focus on the cross and the angle used is somewhat powerful, to say the least. You chose so well to present this, the subject and its history. The hand blured as the backdrop adds to the mood....a very thought evoking image, love it. tfs

stv ;o))


This black hand with the bg gives a very strong emotion, I think I see a bokeh too.
You have chosen essential details and excellent pov.
Contrast and light are well managed.
Unusual and I like the message here.

Very moving post, and thanks for the wonderful information. I like your pov and the use of the dof with blurred the hand. The lighting seems to create some mystery, and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
