This was taken in a magnificent church in Lyon, France. I happened to pass this interesting sight and had to take a photo. The exposure time was rather long and was taken by resting the camera on a pew - it was incredible how still he was.

This is my first submission and I look forward to your comments.

Awesome shot but not typical of a portrait style photo.

I like this, like a peek into a private world.

There are too many things to see in this image, which distracts from the main subject.

I love a picture that makes me look around to see what's there. This does that very well while still pulling me back into the subject.
The rope first caught my attention. It makes me wonder if there's usually a line, or are we perhaps to understand that nowadays no one comes?
The reflection in the glass door has me wondering if that's someone waiting in the distance, or is it perhaps a lonely icon, waiting, like the patient Father, for someone.
Being a lifelong protestant, I know I'm missing much richness here. Bt htis is still a wonderful and interesting peek into the church.
Nicely done.

A very good picture but let down by the rope and pillar in the foreground.
