Sorry about the crown and the septor. I rummaged through the church Epiphany pageant costumes. Started with a cape type thingy that ended up not covering my jeans. So I used one of the priest's vestments. I could not quite get the vestment to look righ when I sat down. The is a bit distacting. Hope not too much. Shot in church this afternoon with the camera on tripod and using the camera timer.

Well at least the beard is real.
Back to the drawing board.

OK, the crown made me laugh out loud. Looks like one of the Burger King crowns, only bigger! :-) Top ten, and 6+ though, so you can't complain! And good to see you, too.

After reading your comments just had to let you know that I'm quite amused at the fact that your shot an image for a tarot card challenge in the church using props belonging to said church. ;-)

I love the sharpness and the textures in this picture. The only thing bothering me is the carton crown. Though it's charming in a way as well. Nice job!

Not sure if the golden hue is intentional...

Wow, where do you hang out ? Then again, I don't really need to know. Really well done, the face & crown seems to have a slight blur but love the colour.

Great setup and lighting. Only thing I wish were different was something at the top of his scepter.

I just dont feel that the props are much help in this. The lighting is fairly good

Definitely one of the nicer photos in this challenge. Is HDR allowed in basic editing? I'll give ya the benefit of the doubt. 7
