    Gosh I love these kind of graveyards. In the west, only a few stones are so engraved with a portrait. I see Bohdan left his wife in widowhood 9 years ago and she is already 71 (getting there). It is nice to see the crosses (not orthodox). The photo is clear and chock a block full of story that we can easily see.

    Ahhh, what a place to visit, thank you. You have over contrasted this and you can clearly see black "clipping" or "black outs" in the trees. (it's the opposite of blowouts) You could take your highlights/shadow lever and muck around a bit to see if you could bring out some detail. This was taken on a very bright day and your exposure was difficult. It is a nice photograph and would do well in a magazine

    I just viewed your image in high res and was blown over at the artistry of your upload. I quite like that "witnessing" effect you have included. This image whispers to me that there are secrets hidden within. I like the compositional style as well that solid stone to our right and the tree, (full of life) hugging (framing) the distant stones. I also like the tonality of this shot...black to white and much in between. Top of the shelf work both technically and artistically.

    I am drawn to the nice dappled effect to this photograph, that play of light and shadow makes it more intriguing. Nice clear upload, sharp and well exposed in difficult lighting conditions! What a bitch we have to die...huh?

    A very strong grey bias to this image. Crop is good and pov focuses on the graveyard, nice and sharp too. What a wonderful place to be able to roam around in...full of history I'm guessing.

    I like this one for it has a feel of cold, blue...and death! Your contrast is strong, you do have some dust spots in the sky (the bane of all photographers). The photo is sharp, a considered composition is evident and overall a pleasant view, thank you. I wonder if a bit more exposure would brighten this and show the snow as white versus blue?

    Energy of the dance (moment) well caught and with the inclusion of environment your photo transports us to this fiesta nicely.

    Wow, literal and metaphorical is right, alright. Good catch and I wonder what your neighbours thought of you roaming through this graveyard as the sun was going down? I like how the graveyard is awash in darkness yet the stones stand out clearly. I do think that the sky steals the thunder from the shot somewhat but the marriage of title and photo go together like a hug and a squeeze!

    Cool idea, I think it would look even cooler if you worked the base of those "ring worms" some. Maybe some shadow/grounding work; or make it look like they were coming out of the ground texture.

    We photographers are all cut from the same cloth. I too always visit graveyards/cemeteries when I travel and wonder the exact same thing you do..."how was life for them?". Some of their stones give insight into the kind of people they were and how loved they were. The feeling of a huge resting place comes through by way of your composition. Fog was serendipitous, ay?!

    You are so creative and go the extra mile to get it right. Your creativity knows no bounds. A bit more sharpness on the bubble I think would have punched it out more.

    Like the pieces very much, but it's to dark to see them properly, that's a pity.
