Medieval Cross       ©2018 Lo
Panasonic DMC-FZ200       6th place, 99 points
1/30s, f2.8, ISO 3200, 46mm, Aperture Priority, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: From RAW used Photoshop to reduce highlights and straighten slightly, cropped to place cross on rule of thirds, Topaz T5 B&W conversion using Toned collection Sepia-gold. Photoshop to clone out glass enclosure.       Extra Info: As the young man read the description of this medieval cross, he looked like a monk or supplicant.
Tripods are not allowed in the museum. Hand held.

    Bernie - you realize you let Michael beat me by one point! Well he deserved it. I'm really happy with the result - and appreciate all the comments and constructive criticism.

    Darn, I meant to vote for this one, but missed it somehow. I was trying to comment on every entry and forgot to click add to favorites.

    Not sure about the sepia type colouring, traditional B&W might be better. Would consider cropping around the fretwork to align it with the edges making the focus on the person

    This would score extremely high if it wasn't for the out of focus subject. It still is a stunning enough capture that it will make my top 10. Great atmosphere.

    This appears to depict the very essence of piety. I like the warm but sombre tones too and it hardly matters that the image is grainy and the focus is soft. In my faves.

    Quite an effective shot, but the explanation takes away from the drama.

    I like the human element here.

    The idea works :) But I would probably have cloned the description out, your extra info is enough to know what is here going on :)
Like the sepia tones too, in my top ten, good job!

    I agree, he does look like a monk. The hand held softness somehow suits the medieval imagery.

    Nice - I thought he was a monk until I scrolled down and saw the label.

    Great capture. It is good to have steady hands, I could never have accomplished this shot. Perfect for the challenge. In my TT's.

    I really like the composition and the subject matter, in my TT. I would have placed it much higher if it was in focus, as is it's a bit fuzzy.
