There are graves in this cemetery from the 1700's and 1800's. That's old - for the US. (1 year and 195 days ago)

Yikes, yes old indeed and that is shown on your image. The two flags add to the evocative element of this photo....dead but not forgotten.

author says:

Yeah. I stopped while travelling along a back country road. The flags are apparently because those two graves are for veterans of the War of 1812. If you look in high res and magnify, you can read the medallion on the one in the back. It was an interesting place.

I didn't know we could do that, enlarge in high res. Yes, I saw that medallion in the back, clear...crystal! Thank you.

You can sometimes find old graveyards hiking back in the hills around us. (1 year and 196 days ago)

That iron pole smack dab in my face is truly a distraction but the lighting is really wonderful and I am reminded to shoot cemeteries during the haunting hours of day!

author says:

Yes. The eye is automatically drawn to the pole. The dissonance created makes you want to look away from it, where the iron bars lead you to the tree swallowing the bars on the left, or down to the right which leads to the graves.

Thank you. Yes, I can see that now. Appreciate this discussion.

A War Memorial Cemetery. (1 year and 197 days ago)

I like this image, not the dead, but the image is strong,
But I think the image will be stronger if you cut off some sky.
Now it's 55% clouds 5% trees and 40% graveyard.

still26 says:

I would like to chime in and agree with Lifetime Damage's assessment. As a general rule photographs that are sliced in half are perceived by the brain as boring, so a crop down would work wonders to highlight the cemetery, which is the focus of this contest. I do think this a well taken shot and we get caught up in the repeat of patterns of the stones and we love patterns.

Our local cemetary (1 year and 202 days ago)

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!

A natural presentation with good white balance evident. Sharp and clear with sensible d0f used. Cold through and through.
