‘CANDLES FOR THE WORLD’ BY CHRISTINE CROSS

'CANDLES FOR THE WORLD' BY CHRISTINE CROSS 1
CRITIQUE BY MICHAEL MCILVANEY

An interesting image: there is a tension in the composition created by the juxtaposition of asymmetry (the placement of the candles) and symmetry (the lines of the orb and its central placement). The range of tones is limited and the challenge of exposing lighted candles somewhat daunting. However, with overtones of peacefulness and spirituality, this is perhaps an example of an image where mood takes precedence over technical excellence.
