Receiving The Light

Receiving The Light

This lady seemed to have a lot of contained emotions, from what I saw from another angle in the Church. I wanted to portray her in a certain way while respecting the intimacy of the moment she was going through.

I look forward to hearing your views in return.

Eglise St Michel, Le Havre

Ditto mes comperes, bien que pas tres porte sur la religion moi meme, je dois admettre que cette photo est poignante et tres expressive.
La lumiere est "divine"

This is delightful Jim. Stunning light and the composition is perfect.
Almost a painted quality - this is indeed a classic in my book.
A very thoughtful image, taken with great sensitivity & expertise.
best wishes my friend..Rob

I think her pose says it all, also the fact that she is sitting in the front of hte church, alone. Love your aptly named! Your golden tones are certainly fitting for this "experience as well, and the light shining down from above makes it all the more spiritual. Great job on this, Jim!
