this has a very strong similarity to the photographer Mario Giacomelli's work, with the stark contrast and subject matter but this photo has a warm atmosphere and has symmetry to it
it's almost uncanny how the nun looks out of place in the place she belongs the most...maybe it's just me..but I thought the warm feeling in the photo made her standout and seem misplaced
In a way it's almost like a ying / yang image where the two extremes balance eachother out perfectly. The darkness of the sky is mirrored in the darkness of her cloak which stands out perfectly from the well lit stucco of the building. Beautiful
wow, this is a gorgeous composition.... you didn't adhere to the typical laws of comp. and managed to create something much more interesting. i love the small cross that is just barely hanging on to the frame and the subject you must have waited for. she is perfect. the pose and all. wow! you should be proud of this one.
