David Van Camp 8/7/2008 8:57:03 PM

Oh, this is just spectacular, Renata!

Wonderful capture. I think you went a tad to far with the sharpening... you should take it back a bit IMO, but that's the only nit I see!

I think the descriptive comments (minus the "I'm not sure"s) would also go over well with what we've been discussing. I think they are looking for that kind of detail, so always be sure to talk / read / etc and find out this kind of info, then present it in your "portfolio" (as text below the images) as well as try to interject such details (casually) in conversations. At least, I would think so :)

Absolutely lovely,

Renata Gusciora 8/8/2008 3:24:54 AM

"Haec omnia tibi dabo si cadens adoravis me"
The name of the mountain came from these words of the Gospel according to St.Mathew which mean:"I will give you all that if you adore me on your knees".
The church is called Iglesia del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus del Tibidabo.
This silhouette of Jesus on the top reminds me this of Rio de Janeiro though I have never been there.
The church is Enric Sagnier's work,1902.
