I love walking through the various cemeteries in New Orleans, Louisiana. There are always interesting sculptures to take a look at and photograph. Here I found an angel staring down in a solemn pose obviously mourning the passing of the person who they watched over. It was a warm (hot – around 95 degrees) sunny afternoon and as I laid on the ground and shot up towards the angel’s face there was a bit of light leak into the camera. I accentuated that a bit in Photoshop and then added a bit of a blur around the perimeter of the frame to emphasize the angel’s expression.
