Photographer’s Notes
This was taken inside Hallgrimskirkja Cathedral in Reykjavik with unknown deceased lying in state. The silence was palpable.

I had a difficult time selecting “the” image for this challenge. Here are my next 3 choices …
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/15000-19999/18197/120/634521.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/15000-19999/18197/120/634521.jpg', '/') + 1) .

Simple and powerful in its starkness. While a person in the scene might be a plus, in this rendition, one's mind is left to wonder. Well done!

Incredible shot that really creates a strong emotion. The colors of the shot create an illusion of selective desaturation without it being done in post.
