Photo of the week: Birth of Christ

I don’t get to experience much daylight during this time of year. In the mornings, sure, but that’s when I go to work – and when I leave work, it’s dark. So when I had to go out and play with my new Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 lens tonight, it was completely dark. In fact, darker than dark. That’s about how dark it was.

From the 15 photos I shot, the result you see below is the one I like the most. It actually comes from a really boring picture, but a bit of cropping, black & white conversion and such, makes it much more interesting and silhuet like, I think. And since Christmas is just around the corner, I figured I’d use this photo, Birth of Christ, as this weeks photo.

ISO 6400, f/2.8, 1/10, 70mm

Yes, it does say ISO 6400 and 1/10 of a second shutter speed – and it was handheld…..!

Here’s the original photo, from which I crafted the photo above. It’s a church of some kind in Malta. I don’t know much about it except that it’s new, I think it has been in use for less than a year.
