I really like this photo. Very despairing to think of this person, whoever they were, no one knows where, what or when.
Also what is more despairing that to have only a hand printed epitath in a piece of concrete and no name.
I like the graininess which matches the grains of sand in the soil. The shadow is more than perfect.
I'm sorry I missed the vote. Would have given it a 10.

this must have been a long time ago! wow. nice find. it is sad that no one knew who it was. definately a reflection of despair for someone thoguh. focus and clarity are good lighting conditions are also good. angle and framing/cropping are ok. I wonder how this would have looked from a lower angle, or did the weeds cover up the writing? good luck in the challenge.

I like it. It says a lot by being so simple.

Where's the despair? Someone's dead, sure, but their tombstone doesn't communicate despair. Just kind of a sad story. Effective presentation of the tombstone, nonetheless.

seems more horror than despair. The eyes of those who loved this unknown victim would show despair, wouldn't they?
