This idea came to me because I just had my daughter babtized this last weekend. I tried to get a shot at the church but she didn't want to cooporate. So last night I set this up in my house. I know the crop is tight but I was trying to make it more compositionally appealing. Plus I felt that there was enough of the hand that you would get the idea.

In general, I got bored of the religious themes as I went through photos to rank for this challenge. I love this picture, though. Aside from the concept of religious grace, it's a beautiful portrait, with good light treatment and lovely textures. Thanks for submitting it!

This is one of the very best shots in this challenge. The composition is very good, love the sepia tone as it ads warmth. The baby's expression is priceless - it's as if the baby was looking up at God. Definitely fits the challenge. The only thing that I think distracts is the thick quadruple border. Why not use a simple line or double line at most. It really takes away from the powerful message of the photo. Still one of my top picks.

Beautiful and appropriate picture, somewhat spoiled by an obtrusive and over-the-top unnecessary border. 6

Let me preface this by saying that I am not a religious person.

That being said, this image is absolutely on theme 100%, excellent work.

I really like the composition in this shot, from the bowl to the baby to the wet baptisim hands...great work.

Black and white is the perfect choice, with the slight toning taking the edge off the straight b&w's harshness.

Beautiful work, top 3 in my book.
