Holding Faith

A further look into dark photography. Found out that the angle of your lightsource is very important and you have to be carefull not to burn out places with the light. The hand is mine and the " paternoster " that I am holding is almost a 100y old.

I used 2 different styles of edit here. I like them both, just the first one is a bit more to my liking.

I'm agreeing with Sherry and Laurie here. I like the editing style&light in #1 and the composition in #2 :)

First one for sure. Love the strength of this image, its mood, composition, and everything else. Great work Peter

I think they both have their merits. I like both of them if I am to be honest one does not stand out more than the other and they compliment each other quite well. #1 feels a bit more dramatic and intense to me and #2 feel a bit more melancholy or pleading .

I would parrot Sherry's comments!
#1 for light
#2 for composition
but I do like how the light strikes the top of fingers in #2

It sits in small adjustments of the light. Love to do it.
