I don't have high hopes for this one. It was last minute, the sun was hot and directly overhead, and most of Jesus is clearly overexposed. The biggest challenge was getting any sort of details out of his face, with the sun high and his head hung low. Still, I managed some magic in post processing. I boosted red and dropped blue in the channel mixer, and brought the rest out with curves. This Jesus faces east, so early morning is probably a good time to shoot -- er, catch him. Also worth noting that this was done with PSP XI (I'm in a trial period).

A rather different and gruesome angle, not one you see normally. The angle makes the face and body look distorted which paints the image of the crucifix not being a pretty or romantic thing. Well done. My only trouble with it is the hot spots on the legs.

What more needs to be said? This is the symbol of christianity.
