[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This one has been sitting on my harddisk for over a year now. And it really is just one of those funny shots where you point the camera into the sun and hope for the best against the light. But somehow what I still like about it is the contrast between man and cathedral.
What you see is part of the cathedral in Metz which is enormous and among other things boasts several stained glass windows by Marc Chagall. Definitely worth a visit.

I like the composition Per, especially with the one person in the scene. Very nice silhouette.

Thanks for the tip, Per. Haven't been there yet...
"Man against the cathedral"... Man loses ;o)).
Nice idea, but it's a pity he's got his back turned towards the cathedral. In all it's a tad dark (backlight shooting - need for exposure compensation, generally speaking) but here that works wonderfully well. Ah, ok, I admit that I have a slight preference for some underexposure ;o).

Hi Per,
I like the atmosphere of this photo ...
The huge cathedral and the tiny human illuminated by the divine light ;)
You did well to post it and good idea of experimentation !
