Awesome challenge! Congrats to all the participants, especially the ribbon winners!

When I first created this image it looked completely different and I was very happy with it until I did more research on EA Poe and read the thread that was created for this challenge so I decided that I needed to make it look spooky because what I had originally created though I was completely pleased with looked very uplifting and "angelic", so I took my final result and darkened it and did some other things to it to make it fit the challenge better. I didn't have much time due to my busy schedule. I wasn't too happy with the dark version of my image but I did what I had to do. This is not my favorite composite work but still thankful it finished high. Thank you for your comments.

p.s. That is the Milan Cathedral in the image which is my most favorite building in the world.

I was joking, I know it's not easy for you, but if you stay in Rome at least we can have a dinner together ;-)

Well, the concept is very good, but I think you could do something more considering your PS skills :)

In any case congrats for the good finish!

Allen, I really like your image a lot, the composition is perfect. The church is also quite impressive, what a building! May I ask where it is located in the world? Congratulations on the great finish, keep up the fantastic work.

Led Zeppelin is going to reunite so they can use this as a cd cover.

My fav shot in this challenge. Extremely creative, great colors and right with the theme. I want to learn how to create this type of art/shot now. :)

A very nice composition, though I wish the bird were higher to break up the very strong line between figure and church, but you got a great mood here, even if it is a bit more Rodger Dean than EA Poe.

This is extremely well done. My guess, another gryaban masterpiece.

Odd combination of imagery. Draws me in. I wish the church was more similar in texture to the robed figure.
