Yes, because photos are just memos, conveying information as minimally as possible. Blah.

I almost feel as if the Priest were added as an afterthought to this shot. You have the majority of this composition on the windows, thus that is what I see first. The windows are georgeous and you did a great job capturing them.

lovely photo. I can see what you were trying to do with that stained glass above him, but I think it took too much away from your subject.

Quite top heavy in your hoice of crop. I think the upper 2/3's of the image underplay your subject. With a whole church and a willing model I would have gone for something different. Just an opinion.

I like the strong vertical, although the left edge doesn't work so well. Maybe a slightly tighter crop there would help.

Great shot.... But are priests meant to be married?? (he is wearing a wedding ring)

Just a little kooky, but I love the unexpectedness (is that a word?) of it. Great composition and I like the sharpness. Colours are a little dull, but it suits the subject.

Nicely captured......

Good tonal range and I love the use of the vertical frame, portrays the idea of the priest and his connection with God. Nicely done.

Terrific framing. I almost jumped when I finally spotted him. A seven for you.

surrounding him by a hierarchical geometry was a bold and appropriate move. This is a great example of the genre.

too much window, too little portrait imho. Otherwise a very nice shot.

he seems a bit lost in the image, had preferred if he was completely in the shot. The huge window at top doesn't tell much, it would be obvious without it where and who he is.

for me too much background

First time in about two years I have commented or entered a contest and this image is the first "ten" and only for this contest for me:) the feeling of the image, your choice of back ground, the feeling of hight, even the glasses of your subject makes this image work for me. good job and good luck.

Technically the shot is excellent, but the crop throws me off a bit. I understand it - to keep the stained glass complete - but it is hard to keep focused on the subject. Overall a good shot and I still score it quite above average.

I like the placement of the subject beneath the window - the framing complements the vertical rise of the background nicely...

With the cropping , the subject appears to be the stained glass, rather than the priest. The actual subject doesn't look like a typical priest (probably the glasses), so without the title I probably would have missed that aspect in this picture (unless I looked more closely at his collar)...4

i wish if u didnt cropped him

As well as any photo in the challenge, you've caught the person in their environment and given us a beautiful portrait in the bargan. Very well composed, captured and edited.

Nice photo, I think if the priest was closed and off to one side it would be slightly better

The subject of your portrait is spot on, and so are his immediate surroundings, but the awkward dimensions of this shot detract from it (IMHO). i think you would have been better off with a horz widefield inside the sanctuary.

Interesting stain glass window.

Great lighting on the subject. His face still catches my attention even with all the patterns in the image. I wish he was a little larger in the frame... maybe a slightly tighter crop.
