The texture you've added to this stunning image raises it to yet another level Becky. Amazing how the light has created a cross-like shadow over the Bible.

Thank you all so very much. I am still pinching myself as I can't believe it. All of your amazing comments are so much appreciated I can not express it.
Receiving this award on this shot is so special to me as it does have a special place in my heart. This believe it or not was not a staged shot but just happened as I was shooting something else entirely different. I was taken back when the scene unfolded before my eyes as the Cross flowing across the Bible was actually the shadow from our cross bars in our windows as the sun was rising and the pocket watch just happened to be on the Eleventh Hour.

Becky, I was just thumbing through your gallery and saw this..... gave me chills! I think a 2nd place award is far below what this deserves!
