His Face Shine Upon You

While I was converting this image from RAW to JPEG, I was looking at it, and it reminded me of those powerpoint slides at church normally used before or after the service. So I thought I would give it a try.

So tell me, honestly. Is this total cheese? I admit, I need to get better at Photoshop. I am not a graphics designer but a novice photographer, so I need to play around with PS more (like I have the time!). Oh well, for shame or game, there it is.

I'm not a big fan of Christianized art, but that is a truly amazing shot. The passage is appropriate. I vote not cheesy.

Thanks David!

I too am not a big fan of Christianized art, and I guess that's my whole apprehension towards attempting this thing.

I really like Desiring God's treatment of photographs and Scripture insertions, and I think it can be done with excellence. But unfortunately, I have seen really poor attempts, and I don't want to contribute to that, lest I find my work being satirized on Purgatorio!

I think it looks pretty good. The photo is amazing... I would maybe add something on the bottom right corner, it looks a little off center as is - or move the verse to the bottom middle... just some suggestions, I'd have to play with it.

Thanks for the suggestions. I did not really spend a whole lot of time on this (less than 10 minutes), so maybe if I had the time, I could come up with a better font, layout, and details.

I have several photos I think *could* be decent images where verses could be inserted. If I get around to them, I might randomly post them to get some feedback.
