Families are Forever by lemango Families are Forever by lemango
Another from my trip to utah of the mormon temple....

mormons believe that when married in the temple, its an eternal marriage, that you are bound to your family past death. so i saw the statue further on down and thought the temple would be a good background for it, did it with a good friend of mine in mind.

Isn't it more accurate to say that Mormons believe that in the next life, their god will split up all families that aren't sealed in one of his temples?

this is beautiful!!! the same sculptor that made this made a sculpture based on my deceased aunt and cousins and they were LDS and I think that the sculptor did a great shot of this.

BEAUTIFUL JOB!!!!!

Our temples are probably the most beautiful things in the world!!!!
(and the salt lake temple took 40 years to build!!!)

woooooow. The composition of this photo is gorgeous. I think the depth of field works perfectly too...its just out of focus enough to emphasize your main subject...but in focus enough that you can tell what it is. I agree with what others have said...the temple in the background adds a powerful presence to your photo. great job!

Very well done! Very good choice for the background, the temple adds an impressive presence to the scene, as if it was somehow guarding the family...
Good choice for the post-treatment too, the halo emphasizes the role of the temple and the colours finish to render this special atmosphere.
Very good job! :D
