Yes this is the fallen DPC Angel. She has got her wings out of the tree. She has wandered aimlessly in crowds of strangers. She even attempted hitchhiking, in an effort to return home, but found no success. In this installment the little Angel looks to the House of God as a possible solution to her dilemma.

This Cathedral can be seen along the east side of Hwy 404 just north of Toronto Ontario. I thought the free study aspect of the square crop challenge would be a fitting place to continue my story.

I really like some of the compositional tools seen in this shot. The rule of thirds, the diagnol of the models gaze and the lines of the grass.

I love your series of this fallen angel. I also must say I am extremely jealous of the owner of that tutu. I really like it :)

Beautiful church, and I like the solitary figure approaching it, but those fake angel wings are really becoming a cliche.

I don't really like the title, but the photo is beautiful (I think the snow is much better than if it were grassy)

Nice composition, but the contrast is a bit harsh and blah. This photo does make me wonder where this is, it is a very interesting site. 8

COOOOOOLEY! I know this is you hehehe.Those wings, that tutu, that daughter hehehe. Excellent composition, although i might have put you daughter a bit closer to the bottom edge where there see to already be some foot steps. Where did you get those wings? i could use a pair of those hehe.

a nice impacting sky would have rounded off this image nicely

I don't understand why the angel is black (or is she an angel or a crow) and I don't understand what she is doing there. But the composition is good and as far as I understand you worked hard on this photo. -10

How did you borrow the black wings, Rikki? ;-) It's a great shot and will do well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/07/2006 12:24:29 AM
Not your fault, but I am very tired of wings. Otherwise a workmanlike image a bit too sharpened.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

An Amazing piece of photgraphy, impacted well with the crop,sadly seems over sharpened with the halo effect, .....7

Does she ever get tire of putting those wings on? I hope not. They do well for you.

Very nice! Interesting stark image.

Cool concept. I think a different angle and perspective could have worked better, especailly with the square crop. I wonder if you could have gotten a lower angle and in a little tighter, so the subject would be lower in the frame and the church would be higher. Nice exposure for the blue sky and the black angel and the snow.
