Stained glass window montage

Our Church recently installed 26 stained glass windows. I recently took some pictures and put them into a montage. My goal is to present our Priest with a framed 11x13 print. Does this work?

Thank you for looking! I actually had my wife look it over and she is a much more symmetrical person than I am. We worked on it a little bit more.

Re: Stained glass window montage

The second one is lined up better, but is more of a diamond shape overall. I like the oval shape of the first one. Personal preference I guess. Just make sure everything is aligned symmetrically up down, left right, space between windows. Use guides, maybe draw a temp oval or diamond shape for the outside just for lineup. I love the idea. What a great gift.

I actually find the second one more interesting. I'd also like to see more emphasis on the stained glass and less on the name of the church. To me it looks more like an ad poster than a commemorative image.

PS: I'm not a symmetrical person, FWIW.

Lurch, thank you for putting in words what I kept vaguely thinking about. I am going to look at the size of the windows in relation to the words.

Very nice. I like the second layout better but agree that words seem a bit overpowering. The typist in me is wondering if St Anns shouldnt be St Ann's.

Correct, thanks for catching that before I had it printed, it is St Ann's
