This shot was taken just after a storm. The light created a strange effect on the sky and the color of the wood was bright. Thanks to my wife for the patience, she is the character with the mantle.
Thanks everybody for votes.

Um, wow. This is incredible, the robed figure adds just the right, powerful touch needed in an already incredible landscape photo.

Excellent shot; its good to see that there are still those who will go out on a limb for mystery; adventure.

Wonderful photo - very "druidic" (if that is a word?). One of my favorite shots in the challenge. I love the composition with the individual looking out over the hills - the red cape against the green landscape is great.

sorry, but as a photographer your job is to convince me.

photographically, this is a nice picture. However, I am not convinced that this is religious.

Highly interesting because it reaches out further in its statement and then such a wonderful presentation. Bump. After considering all entries this one appeals more to me because it stands as a generic spiritual entry. That is, it is not associated with the conventional religions. Worthy of the Blue or at least red or yellow.

Blessed Be. 10

Even though it doesn't really say religion to me, I like enough to give it a 9. Good luck in the challenge.
05/30/2007 03:31:01 PM
Yeah! Great concept well executed! Would like to see it in the Top 5! good luck!

One of my 10's! Great photo!

Oh, I love this! What a gorgeous shot. The landscape is great, and the clouds add to the mystery of the hooded figure. A variety of interesting colours all over the place too. 10

I like the inter-play of all the colors and lighting.
