Very hard to get access to this place, but I love it:
this is really cool
i love the atmosphere you created and the cross at the upper centre of the picture
even a tighter crop might look good, focusing on the centre cross... just a thought
Funny you should mention that...... I did take a few more images at various angles that day.
dang those are awesome!! i wish i had places like that!
Awesome photos. In the last one, is the Headstone engraved into the rock?
now that is a fascinating cemetery, I like the comp of #1 but the strong contrast with blown highlights loses a bit for me....it looks like a very difficult place to get the light right. I like the third image the best, the contrast is well controlled and the comp is good. I love cool cemeteries and this def is one.
I appreciate the constructive comments. The original files are much more in range as I tend to meter conservatively, my post work pushed them over.
I'll call it artistic license looking for a dreamy/gloomy glow effect because it is a cemetery. Without the "push" the results struck me as too dry.
Yes it is. Now you've got me curious to see if I have any images of it.....
OOO! there we go! i love the tighter cropped ones
the last one with the spooky tree on the right is my fave
what a fantastic place!!! nice work
Thanks, this image probably got more processing than most that I do - in order to get the mood I envisioned when I was there.
Hi Marc - really great subject...Its a cemetery with loads of personality and character..The first shot is my pick of the set.
