  1. Wow; stunning. I absolutely love the last image. So powerful in it's directness. The Church and Abandoned Automobile also catches my eye for it's illustrative qualities; I want to know why that car is there, it's relation to the church, etc. That angle also adds a vitality to the composition that I really dig.
