This is just gorgeous Mary Lynn....wow. Fascinating notes too btw.

Nice job combining two photos here..... Your focus on this little chapel is stunning. So amazingly well detailed. I love this spot and completely understand why you like to photograph it. You know- the detail of tthe soldiers and the cannon are just as perfect as those of the chapel and what timing to get this just as the cannon went off.

Lovely, natural color and spot on exposure here. Honestly ML I cannot say enough nice things about this piece. You put it together perfectly. It sooooo gets a gold star from me!

Those clouds from the cannon fire draw my attention immediately. What an unusual ceremony and unusual mix of traditions. I appreciate you informative comments. This photo is a great combination of beautiful architecture in an interesting landscape and a sunset sky with wonderful colors.

An outstanding photo! Congratulations on the recognized status. The lighting is soft and lovely, and the pink cannonball fire just adds to the ironic peacefulness. Your physical position as the photographer really makes this a memorable image.

Would have been a nice enough shot of this church on its own Mary,but to get the cannon at that precise moment of fire gives it an even better shot,do like your wording in this as well...brian

Comment from Trajan


Another grand shot!
I love that you lined up the ridge of the roof with the horizon. Very cool.
The plume of smoke from the canon is perfect!
All around great shot that has a very nice mood and ambiance.
The sky color is really captured well here.
