Entry Title:

By the Power of the Life-Giving Cross

Project Description:

I am an Orthodox Christian, that was fortunate enough to be able to take pictures of the annual Blessing of the Atlantic Ocean, done by St. George's Greek Orthodox Church in Ocean City, Maryland. We celebrated the Divine Liturgy with Holy Communion and then proceeded to cross Coastal Highway, walking up over the dunes and observing a short cross dive/blessing of the ocean. I have not done any significant editing, besides adjusting the saturation, color, and color strength. For these edits I used Adobe Photoshop.
