I can think of a lot of other buildings less pleasing to the eye, I think it's wonderful, it's a gorgeous image, Mojo.

Compensating for.... Ha. When you look as good as that, you don't have to worry about it. Just wait for the camera.

That is a truly awe inspiring Gothis image. Just love the light filtering down. Can't you hear the church organ and see those Vampires.

Aileni took the words right out of my mouth. This is a damn good picture. Nights shots are tough to pull off but you done it. The lighting and composition are superb!

Oh, I love that title!

Carver said...

Very dramatic and beautiful shot. I also love your title.

Dragonstar said...

Yes, the title's fun. But this would stand on its own without a word attached! Excellent photo, with so much detail - and wonderful contrast!
