Easter greetings from this cute little church in Walpole, Suffolk. I have posted Three, the first(Sepia) being, Christ dying and being put on a cross,Easter Friday. The second in B&W, dark times, for the time between his rising. The colour one, for Easter Sunday with Christ rising from the dead. The Beautiful one.
Why is Good Friday, referred to as “good”? What the Jewish authorities and Romans did to Jesus was definitely not good (see Matthew chapters 26-27). However, the results of Christ’s death are very good! Romans 5:8; “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” First Peter 3:18 tells us, “For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit.”
Many Christian churches celebrate Good Friday with a subdued service, usually in the evening, in which Christ’s death is remembered with solemn hymns, prayers of thanksgiving, a message centered on Christ suffering for our sakes, and observance of the Lord's Supper. Whether or not Christians choose to “celebrate” Good Friday, the events of that day should be ever on our minds because the death of Christ on the cross is the paramount event of the Christian faith.SEE WORKSHOP, to represent the Dark days and joyous ones.

Impressive artwork! Good idea to make this photo in sepia, it looks like an old picture. Well done. It reminds me a cover album of some heavy rock band.
All the best wishes,

Jolie composition avec une belle idée d'utiliser le sépia qui donne une atmosphère spéciale et ancienne à l'image.

I like your sepia post, seeming better for me than the 2 WS, and giving an ancien look to this postcard.

sai che adoro il colore, e quindi sai quale dei tre post preferisco! Rimane comunque una base bella, sulla quale hai costruita una bella scena, perfetta per la Pasqua. Un caro abbraccio, e tanti AUGURI.

Not exactly a triptych but nonetheless a very fine trio of pictures, each showing an appropriate mood for the days to which you refer.
From the point of view of the pictures, I think I prefer the coloured version most and then the black and white one. I just think that this sepia one is perhaps just a tad overdone and a little garish. But all are excellent and the subject matter is absolutely beautiful. I shall try to upload a different sepia photograph for you and you can see that you think.
Have a Wonderful and Peaceful Easter!

Have a great weekend - Brian.

I really like this 'old postcard'-look but I have to admit that the version in colours is also very beautiful.
The tombstones leaning in different directions help to present this image as very old.
The church is located in a beautiful natural environment. Where I live churches are always the center of the village surrounded by houses.
The picture has an excellent composition.
Best regards, Paul

This is typical small church from England, I suppose. simple architecture, the graveyard around. Similar was in Coton near Cambridge. Nice nostalgic composition, appropriate for the Good Friday.
