Not being a mormon, I really like it (not sure how a mormon will like it, there is at least one mod who's one, so I guess she'll let you know ;) ). But will refrain from religious talk beyond that (I know the rules).

I love the tones. I haven't a clue what it is, or what this Mormon talk is about :) however.. a very powerful shot (Almost from Lord of the Rings)

Yah nice, very nice, I have no clue what the relation to mormons is, so that goes beyond me too, I just plainly love the picture :-) very strong image

If you want to know the mormon connections PM me (I am not mormon, I just know about them... if you want to know how/why PM me).

I won't talk about religion on the forum, but wouldn't mind in PRIVATE messages. :)

I think this is a great shot. Really like the dark tones and the contrast, as well as the unusual perspective. Very nice work! My hat's off to Muse Amorte.

BTW, I'm Mormon...strong believer. Can't find anything in the shot that bothers me in the least. 'Nuff said.

Powerful, moody capture, well done! (I don't know the significance of the scene either, but I really like it!)

religion is definately something that has its own place (far from the potn forum) but for those of you who are still curious

"Oliver Cowdery on many occasions bore witness that he "was present with Joseph when an holy angel from God came down from heaven and conferred, or restored, the Aaronic Priesthood and…was also present with Joseph when the Melchizedek Priesthood was conferred on each other, by the will and commandment of God"

Don't want to discuss religion here, and I don't want to offend anyone. So here is some extra information presented as generically as I can put it. :)

Oliver Cowdery was Joseph Smith's 3rd cousin who was later excommunicated from the Mormon church for disagreeing with some of J. Smiths practices. He later joined the Methodist church (during this time he denied the book of Mormon).

Make of that what you will. :)

That's enough religious talk, let's not let this degrade into a religious debate, because it's suppose to be about PHOTOGRAPHY!!!

The photo is definitely very moody. I like the use of strong contrast.
