Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer), is a statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, located at the peak of the Corcovado mountain in the Tijuca Forest National Park overlooking the city. It is the tallest of its kind in the world. It is made of reinforced concrete and soapstone. A symbol of Christianity, the statue has become an icon of Rio and Brazil.

    I love the angle.Jjust how I would have done it. Just wish I had a better camera. I’m saving my pennies though! Thanks for the comments too.
    I love how the sky’s tone is not all the same. The color, and shading is especially nice.

    You are a master, Kuntal.

  • Thank you, Hank – your comments are always very inspiring and encouraging.

    Nice view, almost like he is in the sky from the angle you took the shot. Cool

  • Thanks Argeni – even the actual statue in Rio gives the same awe-inspring feeling – how insignificant one is in front of God but at the same time sheltered and protected
