On the heels of the Religion challenge, I'm hoping folks aren't too tired of crucifixes (crucifi?). This should have been my Religion entry, but I think this creatively fits the Why theme as well, so I'm hoping it's judged on its own merits.

HSL for boosted saturation and a richer blue
Levels to silhouette Jesus
Curves to make the clouds interesting
A fairly conservative USM to avoid halos

I very much like the silhouette and the sun; might have cropped out more of the clouds on the right side to direct more attention to the statue.

Love what you did with the sun here. Could represent heavenly light - or a crown of thorns. I also like that you chose to shoot this from the side and not the front as is typical. I'm not sure how I feel about the direct centering... but it's interesting.

The top of the picture is too bright, or the bottom is too dark. I also think the image should be moved a little to the right. Just my opinions though

I am not a good photographer, I do not claim to be better than anyone, any criticism is meant to be constructive criticism......
