Keep the Light On

Contributed by T Ricchetti

I took this picture downtown one afternoon. I saw that one of the lights on the church was out. I also like how the sun was setting to my right when I was taking this. It gives a feeling that a church will always keep a light on for anyone.

Architecture is always so beautiful to capture. I like the one light on and one light off deal. The photograph uses fill the frame and there isn’t clearly a main focal point. However, a main focal point isn’t necessary in my opinion. I think you could have done a few more editing steps to make it look more antique which would add more emotion to this photograph.

This picture really caught my eye! I love how the light was out, this picture looks like something straight out of the medieval times for some reason, but that’s what I adore the most! It could be a little sharper and taken at a different angle, but that’s nothing because it’s still great.

This picture was taken at a very good angle . I like the architecture of the building, and how this picture captures just enough of it to get a feel for the style of the hole building. Nice picture. DN SPHS

This picture is simplistic yet shows tremendous amount of detail. I enjoy that this picture is at a different angle instead of being straight on. Also, I like the lighting in this picture. The unique thing about the lighting on the building is that there seems to be more light on the side that has the candle lit as apposed to the side where the candle is out.

This is an amazing shot! I love the angle of it and how the right side of it almost appears lighter than the left. I also really love the details on the windows and columns and how the frame is fully filled. The soft lines of the bricks really draws you eyes in. Great job! (:

I always love viewing photos of architecture. Your photo is no exception. The composition is good. The prominent diagonal line through the middle of the photo is a “jumping point” of sorts to the rest of the photo, and it works quite well when viewing the rest of the details in the rest of the photo. However, some improvements could be made. The crop is too tight. If you could bring it out enough to where the first arch is completely visible, that would really improve the overall composition of the photo.

I think this photo is relatively boring. All the different lines in the picture make it pretty confusing. It would have been better if it had been taken when it was darker because then it would have actually been noticeable that one light was on and the other wasn’t.

I like the feeling that comes from this photograph. Even though the picture could have been improve like, making the architecture a little more older kind off medieval time, that would truly tell a story about it and give more emotion so the viewer. So they would see and feel the frame a lot more. Also the picture is great really but, it would have been much better at night. It would have had a focus point the light and also would have made the viewer look around the background <.<_>.>. Other than that i like the fill in the frame and the angle the photo was taken from . Keep up the great job!

I like the symbolism in this picture, as well as the angle it was taken at. This photograph really accentuates the structure of the church, and I like how clear and sharp it came out. You did an excellent job with this.

The church is stunning and makes for a wonderful subject. My eye is actually drawn to the lantern is lit rather than the one that is out. This photo works so much better in daylight than if you had taken it at night. At night, all the beautiful details in the windows, columns, and bricks would have been lost.

This is really intersting. I think you did a great job of creating a mood and its a bit depressing. The colors are very drab. I do like this however. You also did a good job of capturing detail. It appears very Detailed.
