Powerful shot with a great concept - and I love the title too. Who says titles don't matter? Moody, evocative and very well taken. Top job.

Nice frame powerful eerie feeling about this shot...Silhoutte and nice top lighting....sky looks like a red filter.....the icon of the cross and bird is contemplative...thank you.

Very dramatic image. Considering the 'eye-level' (midway in the momument) here, this tombstone, and you, must have been standing on the edge of a very steep ravine in order to get the clouds way below eye level.

Love that glow border, Julia. PERFECT for this shot. I'd be interested to know how you go the tops of the monument lit so well, while keeping the rest in shadow.
Very nice work...again.

I'm Glad to see this photo take a ribbon. It is my highest rated shot in the challenge.
The symbol of life and death, the sky vs. the ground, black on white. This is a perfect rendition of the challenge. Congratulations

I simply love the composition of this one. It is a touch grainy, but I think that adds to the "suspensful" or "tense" feeling of the picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/27/2003 03:17:11 PM
Very contrasty, I do like sillohuete photos!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2003 11:02:13 PM
This was a great find. The dove perched on top of the cross with a heavenly cloud behind it is just excellent. The story this images tells is one of hope for those we lossed. This is truely a piece of art. 10 -danny

ok...first a good shot super contrast and i like the light falling on the cross. but what does not work for me is the title unless you meant to make another statement. the bird does not look like a bird of "PREY" which confuses the shot for me unless you meant to title it "PRAY" which would make more sense...I dont know:( I will not as I know some may have take away because of the title, just kinda would like to know what meaning you meant. good luck 6

Clever title, nice sillhouette! Photo seems balanced and I love the gritty feel to it.

Excellent!!! Dove on the cross is so symbolic of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit! The lighting is great here too. Clearly a 10

Whenever I look at the gallery, my eye keeps being drawn to this particular thumbnail. It really stands out in an eerie kind of way. I can't vote but if I could, I'd have to give you a 9 or 10...what the heck, make it a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/22/2003 11:43:28 PM
Great contrasts, in colors and in themes. I like the stark bird and tombstone against the billowing and imposing clouds. This shot could easily be in a horror film to add ambience. Really nice work

Great composition. Nice work with the contrasts both in subject and objects. One of my favorites. 10

I'm a beginner so I can't offer any good advice on your picture but just wanted to say that the idea is wonderful. The double contrast.. between light and dark and between prey and pray is very creative :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/22/2003 04:34:48 PM
This is a wonderful photograph, first time i have ever given a 10 - Outstanding

great shame about the artefacts around the silhouette. Gorgeous shot despite that though

nice play on words

Great shot, love the subject and execution. I think NeatImage would be great to clean up the clouds to make it more pure.
