The Armenian Cathedral of the Holy Cross

This Armenian Church was nearing the completion of its restoration when we visited.  At the time, it did not have the cross which now adorns the tower.  The picture is a composite of three main views with some additional features.  I found the whole arrangement a challenge and was hoping to include more examples of the beautiful reliefs to be found around the church but they did not seem to sit comfortably within the final composition.  Originally the three views had their own perspective and lighting depending on their actual positions on the cathedral.  However, having shown the original idea to a few people, they struggled with what appeared to be contradicting perspectives and lighting so I have made them both as consistent as possible.  My only concern about this is that the composite nature of the image is slightly lost because everything seems consistent and “true”.
