    OoooOOoo!
    this is really cool
    i love the atmosphere you created and the cross at the upper centre of the picture
    nicely done!
    even a tighter crop might look good, focusing on the centre cross... just a thought ;)

    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.

    Hi Roger,

    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.

    Thanks again!

    Marc

    Thanks, this image probably got more processing than most that I do - in order to get the mood I envisioned when I was there.
