I love this photo by the photographer Steve Peixotto. It was published in Wired magazine (for a story titled, "The Church of the Non Believers"), but I saw it for the first time in the August 2007 Communication Arts Photography Annual. It's a wonderful photo illustration - the image is direct and clean, but it's message is revealed after a few seconds of viewing it. There's the implicit action of someone removing the cross that creates further visuals, at least for me. Lastly, it just feels like a magazine picture that most readers would enjoy, regardless of their take on the story.
