El Salvador was named after Christ the Saviour by the Spanish, much like San Francisco was named after st. Francis of Asis. There is much still left of the old spain here, less so of the native culture, which is best found in Guatemala.
This, with the D800 and the 50mm 1.2 is the statue of Christ I like the best, representing his passion in a very realistic and human way, looking at the heavens as though asking "why has thou forsaken me".
The 50mm 1.2 does a great job capturing the feeling of this work of art, it is a notoriously difficult lens to focus at 1.2 because it does not math any of my camera's indicator lights, it focuses closer than indicated, the 55mm 1.2 on contrary focuses right on where the camera says.
full size followed by the crop of the face, appropiate shot for my location and Lent.
