Beautiful light, comp. and capture. Great size comparison. Like Bobby's story too. Good for them not giving in to the government. Like the stormy sky too.

What an incredible image, Frank. The lighting, comp, details, scale, and sky are all outstanding. It's both awe-inspiring and humble.

It reminds me of: "Do you hear me now?"

WOW how that cross dwarfs the Prayer Chapel. Outstanding composition to demonstrate the comparison, Frank. Love that dramatic sky.

Extraordinary! The size of the cross outweighs the simple little white church. The menacing sky behind really contrasts well against the subject, another great job, Frank!

Frank, outstanding image filled with tons of symbolism; love that the cross is so big, making it the priority; cherish the fact that the church and the cross are so contrasted to the stormy background as they truly represent the "light in the darkness"; excellent on all levels!

The proportions of the cross vs the church are noteworthy, Frank. The contrast in size really emphasizes what matters most.
That sweet little church (such a lovely cream color) looks like one locally that I've seen on the inside. It has room for 40 people, or less!
Hope you and Annie have a cool and comfortable weekend!
