Today is the second Sunday in Advent. In honor of the day, I am interrupting my Hawaii series and uploading a photo of the Genevans' Christmas concert, “Birth of the King!” conducted by Dr. David Kenneth Smith, at 1st Presbyterian Church of Beaver Falls on Saturday, December 7.
The Genevans is the student choir of Geneva College, heir to a tradition of choral singing dating from the early years of the college over a century and a half ago. The mission of the choir expresses Geneva’s belief that music, as one of God’s finest gifts, meets a deep, universal need in people. The choir’s repertoire is broad and varied, reflecting the belief that “all of life, always and everywhere, is life in the presence of God.”
Geliş’in 2. Pazarı
Bugün Geliş’in ikinci Pazar günüdür. Günün şerefine, Hawaii serimi kesintiye alıp 7 Aralık Cumartesi’nde Beaver Falls 1 Presbiteryen Kilisesi’nde Dr David Kenneth Smith tarafından yönetilen Genevans'ın Noel konseri, "Kralın Doğuşu!"ndan bir fotoğraf yüklüyorum.
Genevans (Cenevreliler), Geneva (Cenevre) Koleji’nin öğrenci korosu, bir buçuk yüzyılın üzerinden önceki üniversitenin ilk yıllarından kalma koro şarkı geleneğinin mirasçısıdır. Koronun misyonu, Geneva'nın inancı olan, müziğin Tanrı'nın en güzel armağanlarından biri olarak insanların derin, evrensel bir ihtiyacını karşıladığını ifade eder. Koronun repertuarı "yaşamın tümü, her zaman ve her yerde, Tanrı'nın huzurunda yaşamdır" inancını yansıtarak geniş ve çeşitlidir.

First many thanks for your last comments, I appreciate it very much. You have displayed excellent airplane photos. In this way we have the same photo hobby. I've already registered with airport-data and will try to contribute there. My airplane photos originating mostly from my travelling (with more than 4 mio km).
During my technical university studies in Zurich (many years back) I've taken "airplane construction) one of my engineering subjects. This brought me very often to Zurich airport, workshops, tower operation and also flight simulator. Unfortunately a digital camera was not available that time.
But now to your interesting photo. I like very much the framing (must be view through some kind of grill) and the excellent view the singers group. The light is very good. Also nice to see the people of both sides. Excellent photo for this festive season. Well done indeed.

Very good use of out of focus framing creates more interest on the subjects inside. They look very neat and prim as well. Very well taken and thanks for sharing.

Beautiful idea it is of framing with defocussed outline of the grill.
Nice colors, great clarity and a very good light - made the shot so brilliant.
A wonderful record of the event.

With warm regards,

Always been a fan of the frame-within-a-frame concept, and this one certainly fits the bill! Great idea, especially considering the slight obstruction of people on the left side...this wise choice of composition helps keep focus through the center point of the image and leads they eye right towards the choir.
Never an easy task to execute an indoor shot like this with tricky lighting conditions, but it would appear you found a nice balance to show everything, and everyone, in detail. Kind of a "through the looking glass" type of effect. :)

You're capturing well this the second Sunday in Advent by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the the student choir which has sung the hymn and the believers who stood up and has sung together in the church. It looks like a good uniform which man wears formal clothes with deep blue and woman wears red long dress. So, you catch well this situation.

Very original idea and clever capture of this choir through the shape of the grill, which makes for a good composition too, with the singers at the back and the congregation in the foreground.
Excellent sharpness of the faces which is not so easy to achieve, with so many people on a photo.
Have a good Sunday !

I like very much how you enhanced the interest of this scene and rendered your composition richer by including an intriguing frame in the foreground. A fine way to introduce your point of view and a little story. The scene we are watching is comprehensive and captivating, depth and clarity are wonderful. I like very much the atmosphere created by the scene, the warm lighting and colours as well as your note. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,
