Spiritual was a difficult theme - often hard to get across a feeling in a picture I find unless something romantic / sad or more " in your face".

i would never have thought about a nuthatch as being spiritual, like i've already said, it's a fantastic shot but i wouldn't have thought to enter it into this theme, well done oldboy :tup:
Lots of different birds were used to illustrate spiritualism in the church mainly because they could fly, they were used as a link between heaven and earth. The Robin got it's red breast from pricking it's self, on the crown of thorns on Christ's head, according to legend. Lots of religous paintings show birds like the dove of peace. Poetry features birds of all types like Shelley's Ode to a Skylark, "Hail to thee, blithe Spirit!"  ;D

Seems I've missed out on this discussion by not being around this week (typical - I'm always late  :-[ ) Anyway my thoughts I can see the difference that cannoffice has made to the but I was hoping to convey how high the church is on the hill and the leaning back I hoped emphasised this (I too had straightened in cs3  but reverted to how it was)  I couldn't get down lower  due to the 4 foot wall that runs around it but as any criticism is valid and useful so please don't be put out by anyones replies

I had a great idea for this one but time, winter evenings and weather conspired against me... I'll just have to enter this week, win and request spiritual again...  ::)
