"Unofficial" Featured Collection #4 - Coolest Crosses

posted on 25th of march, 2013

This is the fourth installment of "Unofficial Featured Collections of Dreamstime". I am periodically selecting and writing about Dreamstime collections that I personally feel are of high quality and noteworthy. Some of the criteria I use are: theme cohesiveness, image quality, diversity of contributors, & collection maintenance. If you want to suggest a collection to feature, please leave suggestions at the designated thread, and include a few sentences telling why you think the collection is especially good. Note that the selection process is completely unofficial and does not represent any endorsement by Dreamstime.

Unofficial Featured Collection #4
Coolest Crosses managed by Eliane Haykal

With Holy Week upon us and Easter in just a few days, our 4th "Unofficial Featured Collection" reminds us of the meaning of this holiday. The collection, Coolest Crosses is maintained by Eliane Haykal and contains over 60 crosses from nearly that many unique photographers and illustrators. The images are striking, and they show many aspects of the cross. We see images of death and of life, of darkness and of light. Some images remind viewers of the death of Jesus Christ, while others lead to thoughts of His resurrection, or of hope, or of trials, or the future.

Several of the images are shown below, but you are encouraged to visit the collection and see many images of the Easter Cross.
