Good use of blur technique. Nicely done.

I like how you have the irrelevant bg details blurred to become a supportive bg bokeh.

Nice find.

Lensbaby? This looks really cool. Great comp and colors and I think the effect works well with the subject.

I like the composition, but find the focus to be off.
03/16/2009 10:09:33 PM
might have been nice if there was a bit of sharpness at the center

The blur gives this a nice 3-D appearance. Interesting color and subject.

very mystical

Good shot. The OOF works with this pic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 11:22:47 PM
Nice effect but I think it needs a focus point.
03/15/2009 09:10:11 PM
I don't care too much for the blur, but I do admit that it adds some interest to the shot that normally wouldn't be there.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 05:45:11 PM
Really OOF.
03/15/2009 04:47:20 PM
Photographs made up totally of a piece of art don't make me think of the photographer as the creative one... but the artist.

(No offense to Jesus who died to save me from my many sins)

03/15/2009 07:10:34 AM

take care

This almost looks like a real shot of someone hanging on a cross, other than the hair and crown of thorns not looking very real. I like the OOF on all but the head, though the unknown red rods are sort of distracting. Nice emotional shot of Christ on the cross, though as a Protestant I prefer the empty cross symbol. Happy Easter (soon).

OOF too much for me
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 05:53:27 PM
I can't say this is doing much for me, sorry. Did you shoot it with a lensbaby? I can't see one spot of focus, maybe if something were in focus I'd like it more.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 08:40:12 AM
Interesting treatment for this. I like the colors in the background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I'm not really sure why you would choose to showcase this - though you might be happy with the object, I don't think you've brought much in way of 'added by the photographer' other than perhaps the selective focus, which for me doesn't work that well.

sweet shot great dof and perspective
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 08:20:30 PM
I usually like out-of-the-box and this certainly is. I like the abstract forms but the rest loses me a bit.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 06:05:35 PM
Nice shot, is it with a lens baby?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 02:45:26 PM
i like the dof and blur, but it seems that no part of the picture is really in sharp focus, and that kind of takes away from it for me a bit.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 01:49:02 PM
quirky and cool.. love the blur 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 12:41:15 PM
Soft focus works well here
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 05:51:54 AM
Not sure if you intentionally applied the soft layer, unfortunately does not appeal to me too much , 4

03/13/2009 03:23:29 AM
dont like the poor image quality
03/12/2009 09:47:00 PM
I like the blurry, dreamy effect. Looks like LB shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 02:54:16 PM
a little soft focus, interesting composition
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 01:11:27 PM
Effective use of blurring
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 09:06:49 PM
Very shallow DOF - looks like a small object. Interesting to have a shadow on the face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:56:11 PM
Nice use of blur.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 02:01:32 PM
Good perspective, very thought provoking.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:59:03 PM
Lensbaby? I'm not sure the statue lends itself to that style very well
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the use of blur
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 10:51:22 AM
Some camera blur here...
03/11/2009 10:34:29 AM
The sun was to bright I think. Takes away from the emotion with the distractions in the background to. But I do like the subject. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 08:20:59 AM
Very abstract.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 07:10:44 AM
Bright light and colors, but it's hard to find a point of focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:39:49 AM
nice use of the lensbaby, I like how the sun is falling on his head
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:15:19 AM
FORGIVEN! Amen!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 04:52:23 AM
Would score higher with better focus
