[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Finger of God is one of icons of the state Rio de Janeiro and is part of the mountainous complex of SErra dos Órgãos (the Organ Mountains name given by European immigrants who colonized the region, Swiss, German, Polish, who saw similarities in the profile of the mountains with the organs of European cathedrals).
I rarely convert color photos in BW, but here it seemed that the mysticism surrounding the peak requested it.

Hi Raimundo
Converting this picture to b&w was a good idea, I think.


Interesting landscape nicely composed with appropriate B&W.

Hi Raimundo, b&w definitely suits the atmosphere of the lone pinnacle, good timing with the cloud cover instead of blue sky. Fiona

Grande abraco.
