Hi Nikos. Very evocative composition- one can sense the passing of centuries and generations of the faithful who came to pray and light candles, as they still do. Great light/warmth. Regards. Klaudio.

a good picture with the sharp icon (should be sharper by reducing the aperture) and the lit candles in the background.

beautiful composition, real and so hot colors! Only one complaint - the focus is on the frame of the icon - pity!
All the best in the Next Year!
