Daily Travel Photo – Pisa, Italy

Cross and window in Pisa Cathedral

Cross and window in Pisa Cathedral

As I was walking around the cathedral I spotted a beam of light coming through one of the windows. It had a pretty dramatic effect on what it was illuminating so I waited a few minutes until it hit the crucifix that was on the altar. I originally didn’t think the photo would turn out well because the lighting was so poor.

I manipulated this image more in Photoshop than I normally do. There were some dim glints around the window that showed up that I blackened out so just the stained glass and crucifix were visible.

Had the beam of light been a few inches more to the right so it was on the head, the image would have been even better.
