The Elevation of the Soul
This was my entry for a photo competition. Now that I know I'm out (seriously, there were so many spectacular photos, I don't know how I even made it into the competition) I can post it here. :)
Taken from the B&W shot I had posted when I made it: This idea came from a painting by El Greco (The Burial of the Count of Orgaz), in which the soul makes its way from the dead body to the upper skies. Of course, this is my (very liberal) interpretation of the said painting.
