With creating a stained glass like image in mind, I placed a golden, abalone shell, cross ornament
on some black, velvet fabric to make a striking background & then photographed it.
In PSE6 I played with filters & plug-ins until I came up with this kaleidoscope image which was exactly as my original vision
I then cropped it to make it more eye-catching using the rule of thirds.

"For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved, it is the power of God." ~1 Corinthians 1:18
