    Went out to a local pioneer cemetery this past weekend. The light was really harsh, didn't get as many keepers as I wanted. Any comments or suggestions on improvements are welcome!

    I thought about editing #1 and #2 together (I couldn't frame a good shot with the 35mm lens I had to include both the top and middle).

    Yeah, tough lighting. A telephoto, or even a 50, would make it easier to exclude the bright areas in the background. With a telephoto's narrow angle of view even a large tree not too far away could be the entire background to the headstone. That, or go back on a heavily overcast day - the best lighting for a cemetery anyhow!
