Creating Your Own Path by gilad Creating Your Own Path by gilad

You say nothing ever goes your way
So you look for help and start to pray
How about creating your own path today
If you follow your light it will show you the way


****

A local church near Marseilles, France.
Taken with Canon 17-40L
I stayed there for a long time trying to get the light and the moment right, and it worked out as planned. It's a good thing I have the faith...

Wow beautiful photo. *o*!!!! I personally love the cathedrals with the Gothic style still,because they simply look gorgeous. >u< <3 Reminds me of the Cathedral in .hack. >u<! Wow,How long did it take you to get the picture just right? Thats amazing. :3! Especially with all these people that don't have patience these days and just take the photo and then take Photoshop,this is something to admire. ^^

I love this! I love the camera shot you've used. You've captured not only the entrance, but what it seems to be the ceiling above you yourself! I adore the light, and I adore that someone is at the entrance. I'm glad you were there to capture this.

I love the perspective a whole lot. It seems as if you are there because you can see the ceiling above and then look way out to the doorway.

Interesting last line - to me the light is coming from outside, while the grand construction dedicatied to god (faith) holds only shadow.

Great picture though =D
