Title - Cryptic Light
Lensbaby 2.0 no aperture installed

While on a stroll through a small local cemetery on a dark and dreary afternoon, I happened upon a old mausoleum with large copper doors turned green with age. Inside beyond the locked copper doors was a very erie glow of light! How strange I thought as there was no visible sign of wires supplying power to run a light! There wasn't a living sole to be seen in this graveyard but I finally summoned up the courage to look through the dirty glass of the old green doors and to my surprise I could see a faint erie glowing figure of what I took to be Christ. I quickly made a few pics and got the hell out of there! ( please pardon my French) - jimmy

Again thanks to all who submitted entries. There were some interesting and creative images here this week. I would like to congratulate the following:

1st place goes to jumpinjimmyjava and "Cryptic Light" Just an eerie image and story. Many aspects of this image I found compelling. The green petina like look to the gated bars as well as the glowing transparent glass image of christ set a truly macabre atmosphere. Well done.

2nd place goes to jbrunjes for taking a different tack on the challenge and providing an interesting b/w image.

3rd place goes to shurla5. This image is incredibly colourful and has some great bokah effects. I think this could have gone to second place if there was just a bit more defined sweet spot with the central jellyfish light.

Again thanks for the great posts and keep those challenge submissions coming.
