Congratulations on your Red. This was one of my favorites because all the ingredients blend exceptionally well to make a super darkness image.

For surely he cometh! Very convincing with sky, earth, cross and model.

Sorry for the form-letter type commentary. Iím going to try to give almost everyone at least this breakdown to start. I would be happy to offer a more detailed opinion if you would like, though I donít consider myself a very knowledgeable photographer.
Here is how I broke down my score for your submission.
Content: 2/4 (Is the subject compelling? Does the choice of content match the challenge?)
Composition: 2/2 (Is the work well balanced and successful?)
Color/Light: 2/2 (Is light and or color used with skill and artistic intent?)
Clarity: 1/2 (Is the picture in focus? Are the elements clear?)

Well done, ribbon quality in my opinion. Very dramatic, you couldn't paint the clouds more perfect.

I'm not normally a fan of "concept" photography, but this is very nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/17/2005 08:02:43 AM
Nice setup! One of the few tens I've given out for this challenge. Very fortunate about the cloud/mist nearby behind the cross. Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent portrayal of the challenge subject. Good level of dynamic range and your use of sepia really brings out the textures in the sky and ground.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/17/2005 02:04:14 AM
Good composition, but lacks a little contrast
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/16/2005 11:02:37 PM

i was out hoeing my yard and i thought of this photo - my little mind said i wonder if that was a real scythe in that darkness photo, because i could really ue that to cut some weeds right about now. Now i am done babbling, i am bumping up your photo.

I really like the perspective used in this photograph. Terrific sky. Great focus and fitting tone. Full of highly visual symbolism, death, resurrection, heaven. Fits this challenge. Very creative and well done!

Very nice well executed shoot...can't think of anything that I would have done different except straigthening the cross...but that is the virgo in me. Excellent shot.

Very well executed executioner!

Weeeeird. This is one great photograph for this challenge. I like the dust/smoke underneath the cross. The composition is excellent, but for the glares from the sun. They distract. Also, the Grim Reaper's head looks much too small.
This is such a haunting place. 10.
