About the Image(s)

I saw a dark moody church image I liked so I tried my version of it. The church and the house are from Iceland, and the stone from a local cemetery. I lit up the window to show some light (hope?) from some deaths as shown in the three gravestones. So even though the man is inconsolable, the light shows a glimmer of hope. Anyone have a better title?

Tom, Another evocative image that tells a wonderful story. Your self portraits are iconic, reminding me of Magritte and Hitchcock. The title is nice. You could simplify it to "Refuge". I like how you play with light to tell a story of hope. The choice of black and white is excellent. The addition of rain nicely ties the elements together. If it were my image I might continue playing with light, possibly adding a surreal glow emanating more from the building but the image feels complete as it is.   Posted: 05/06/2022 16:09:20

Hi Tom,
I like the "dreary moody" look of this image. My only comment would be to make the church and the headstones just a bit larger to be in more proportion to you. I would add some contrast but that's a personal preference.
