    I honestly don't remember the settings, I didn't write them down because I was quickly losing the light.

    I post processed this in PS adding a bit of noise, and boosted the contrast to give the picture a more dramatic/gritty feel.

    This particular soldier is buried in the middle of a plot, and it struck me that he served in 3 different wars, was a Major, and ended up surrounded by enlisted men--hallmark of a great leader.

    IMO the flowers are to soft, but foregrounds being extremely soft just are not my style and I am sure other will love it

    I like it, but it feels like something is missing a little to me. Maybe the frame is a little too tight, I'm not sure. The soft flowers don't bother me, they draw my attention back to the stone, but it feels like there is a bit more I want to see.

    Tough one for me.
