I’ve always enjoyed anything that smacked of medieval history. When you look at gothic architecture it’s easy to imagine yourself back in the thirteenth century listening to the chanting of monks. It can seem like history lies in every stone. So I was very glad to find this saintly carved figure over the entrance to a local church. Telling a story with pictures is easy when a subject has this much character.
To maximize image quality, this shot was taken with a 50mm prime lens. Later on HDR-like effects were added using Topaz Adjust filters.
