One of my cemetery shots. I love shooting in old cemeteries.
:scratch: ... weeeeeelllll.
I am not quite so sure about composition here.
The main subject is all shadow and silhouette only, and a silhouette against an dark background even, while there is this bright left corner with a sky that does nothing to the photo but distract.
I do appreciate that abundance of summer flowers in the background, but I feel that even cropping the pic to horizontal and thus eliminating most of that sky does not make the angel bright enough here. The bottom part is way underexposed.
The image is that dark because I decided I wanted the angel in silhouette which it wasn't in the original. The original is not actually underexposed. I am not that experienced in manipulating techniques hence the only thing I could think of to do was to adjust the brightness.
