I was toying with several different ideas, nothing really working for me until the sermon this morning at church. At one point the pastor pointed out how John 3:16 sums up the whole Bible. John 3:16 states the gift of ETERNAL LIFE is there, if you choose it.

This was my attempt at tying in that verse with an action: Praying. After torturing my daughter for more minutes than the typical attention span of a teenager, I realized that I had shot all my photos at 1600 ISO -- still getting used to the new Canon EOS-10D. Oh well, it came out OK for my first 10D submission -- I hope.

I don't care for the use of sepia tones with this photo.

Excellent composition in my opinion, and I love the tone. I'll ad this photo to my "Why didn't I think of that?" list

Excellent interpretation and use of the chain to make a point. Shading right on and very good dof. Great shot..

While I judged the photo on artistic merit, on a personal level, AMEN and Keep the faith brother (or sister)

Yes!!! Perfect verse John 3:16. Gave me life! :-) Nicely composed, with some good diagonals. Cropped a bit tight up at the top of the hands. Colouring is good.
