    After losing (2) family members within a week of each other, I decided to visit the cemetery today and I snapped a few pictures while I was there. Tell me what you think.

    So sorry to hear about your loss. Sounds like it is hard to bear!

    The first has this much overexposed sky... a crop could see to it. There is still room enough to have the cross of roses be the main feature AND lose the distractingly bright sky AND still work with the usual print size ratio.

    Of the last two I tend to like the angle chosen for 3 a bit better.

    Sorry for your loss. I also like your photos. I think the shots of the headstones alone would make for great B/W shots and the cross of roses would make a great selective coloring shot. They are also good in full color, but I think the B/W would really create a mood. Good shots though.
