April Squares: Top Shots: Montecassino Abbey

ISO 400 f/2.2 1/17sec 4.2mm

Day 10, find other responses here.

Date and Location of Photo: October 26, 2017. I visited the Montecassino Abbey both because it was founded by St. Benedict and its WWII historical connection. We visited for the day while on a trip to Rome. It was well worth the research and effort to get to the area. The fact that this post featuring my favorite saint is on Good Friday was not planned in advance by me, but is for me a meaningful coincidence.

Thoughts on the Edit: This edit has two different Luminar Looks applied, Enigma, set at 100%  and Mono, set at 28%. The combination, while toning down the photo, still retains the glow that this Altar has.

April Squares, an Explanation:

When Becky announced that the April Squares theme was going to be “top”, I thought it over and then sent her a message, then pitched my idea. She was open to my theme within the theme and the result is my response to the April Squares challenge.

I move a lot and I have a move pending. I’ve lived here in England for about four years and will be heading to the United States. Exact dates to be determined, given the current world situation, details have yet to be worked out. My April Squares is a “top shots” reflection on the last four years. Each square represents some moment or place that was meaningful to me. They are in chronological order moving forward in time. I’m attempting to post every day. All photos will be edited in Luminar 3. I hope you enjoy following along, I’ve enjoyed the process of creating. Your comments and thoughts are welcome below.
