    This evokes a few emotion in me, Anger, respect and sadness, in that order. It brings up thoughts from many years ago. The word that comes to mind is "sterile", but that is a compliment on your composition...this is a job well done!

    This definetly evokes emotion...just what a picture of this nature should do.

    Great work on this shot.

    Thanks for the comments.

    just a little background:

    It's a cross grave marker (obviously) at Robert Kennedy's grave at the foot of a hill to JFK's grave at Arlington National Cemetary. Very honestly, I just took it because it was cool. When I cropped it and began working on it, I came up with the title...I traditionally suck at titles (just look at other stuff I've posted), but I think this one really works. Not being a Christian, it evokes certain emotions in me as well that honestly weren't there when I snapped it, but definitely came out when I cropped and adjusted it.

    Thanks again for the comments.
