Good Friday (from the senses pious, holy of the word "good"), is a religious holiday observed primarily by Christians commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. The holiday is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday, and may coincide with the Jewish observance of Passover. It is also known as Black Friday, Holy Friday, Great Friday, or Easter Friday, though the latter normally refers to the Friday in Easter week.
Based on the details of the Canonical gospels, the Crucifixion of Jesus was most likely to have been on a Friday (John 19:42). The estimated year of Good Friday is AD 33, by two different groups, and originally as AD 34 by Isaac Newton via the differences between the Biblical and Julian calendars and the crescent of the moon. A third method, using a completely different astronomical approach based on a lunar Crucifixion darkness and eclipse model (consistent with Apostle Peter's reference to a "moon of blood" in Acts 2:20), points to Friday, 3 April AD 33.

Good graphism of the white cross against the dark blue sky. The 2 tone colors both go well together. Excellent sharpness and an apt upload for Easter. The cloud patterns add interest too. Tfs!

A striking and very graphic take on Good Friday. There's a strong narrative tension between the cross and the sky. Very good work.

esta composición minimalista tiene una gran potencia dramática, por la buena superposición de la cruz sobre el cielo azul polarizado y sobre las nubes blancas.
El contrapicado nos ofrece un ángulo visual muy eficaz, que enfatiza la belleza de esta foto.
Su simbolismo en el Viernes Santo para los cristianos es muy adecuado.

linda vista da cruz branca que produz um bom diálogo visual com o céu azul e suas nuvens esgarçadas. gostei do enquadramento, luz e nitidez. uma compo simples e bem feita.
