[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a Church Dome from the interior which belongs to Xewkija Church, Gozo. I cropped to obtain this composition with light from the windows and shadow. I added the lens flare from Photoscape.

Hi Francis.

Impresive indeed.
I love what you have crated here, the silhouetted walls leaing just the openings allow s to still witness the dome, powerful idea to add the flare, stunning image. tfs

stv ;o))

Hello Francis
You have managed to create a beautiful graphic image
from this shot...The crescent looks like the moon.
very beautiful...Well done....TFS

I like th mood you have captured in here, Francis!
Great idea turned into a wonderful result with amazing PP work.
The contrasts are splendid and light is just enigmatic.
Well executed shot!

Kind regards,

I think this was a brave shot, but have to be honest, this doesn't really appeal to me. Dont get me wrong, there are elements I like, such as the starlight at the top, the shapes.... For me though, the shot doesn't work. It's two seperate images that are not linked. I'm sorry it's only my opinion and many people will disagree.

This is a beautiful graphic effect, I like the shapes of windows, well done

Nice job with the lens flare. It really enhances this interesting perspective. B&W a good choice.

Hello Francis,
This a very creative presentation of illusion,and I may wrong,but my opinion is that illusion doesn't follow any certain rules which we maintain.
So,I can say its a very bold and beautiful step.
My regards,

Hi Francis...I love the star pattern of the overhead window...nicely composed...artistic.
