13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
An angel with a choice to make.

While taking pictures of myself on top of my favorite hill I decided I wanted to make a picture that portrays the struggle and coexistence of right and wrong, good and evil, light and darkness. I decided that I'd portray this in an angelic character. This angel is crouching down with one wing black and the other white. There is light shining down from the upper right corner of the picture and a darkness lying to the left. Each seems to call to him and he must ultimately choose one.
