Khachkar for Vidau

This is another shot I brought back from my Armenian travel.

I don't know if anybody like it, but I'm very glad of it. Artificial light (behind me, on the left) and natural light (a window just outside the right edge of the picture) combined greatly on the carved surface.

I slightly cropped to get rid of all the monastery architecture, then I burned the left part of the background wall, which has a grey tone too close to the subject. I tried to retain the most sharpness I could, I hope resizing didn't kill all the details

I got a picture that looks solemn, mysterious and vaguely hypnotic, that's exactly what I thought when I was in front of it.

I got a picture that, if I didn't know it's mine, I'd think it's Vidau's (no offence, obviously)

As too often happens with the pic I'm enthusiast of, I can't really tell whether it's a good one or not. What does your more objective eye think?

You'd better look at it at the largest available size...

Take a look to my gallery! I'm sure you'll find something to teach me!
