  2. Great take on church photography. Usually they look like a travel brochure, but this shot captures the mystery and the feeling.

    A design of silhouettes is impressive.

  10. Great shot. I like the dark with the candles light and then how much lighter the alter is. The effect is very beautiful.

  11. I'm a Catholic and all, but I actually find this creepy. Not sure why. The candle holders are so neat though. The ones I see here don't have glass so the wax just drips all over the place.
