Nikki McDonald level-classic October 16, 2011

You simply cannot beat the blue of a New Mexico sky. And coupled with the gold of sunlight on adobe, it's, well, heavenly -- the perfect palette for this image, Patti. I really like the camera tilt that enabled you to get all the crosses in and to use the angle and shape of the nearest to lead the eye in and up as well as to frame the church front. Lovely. #1415765
