Making memorable images

Serenity and holiness

Our Lady closeup 3240

I know I have posted a similar image before, but as I was going through old shots the other day, I stopped at this one. There is something about it that captures my attention. It is a sculpture of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and the serenity of her expression and demeanor have a stunning beauty. The clouds in the background add a halo of holiness to an already iconic presence.

  1. The detail in the sculpture’s face combined with the smoothing effect of the IR make this one unusual – real, but not real. Very good shot and I agree with your comments on the clouds…were they there or did you only see them when you were post processing?

    • The clouds were there, just as they show in the photo. I only know how to do a few things in Photoshop, so most of my photos are as close to their “natural state” as they can be. 🙂
