I was stunned at the final score for this photo. I really liked it and unlike the masses believed it warranted a much higher score, namely a 9.

Keep up the good work.

With a 1.7 spread between commenters and the overall average, it's obvious if you stop and look at this for a while you'll appreciate it a lot more -- sorry we couldn't get you up to a 5.

Color (processing?) will put off some people. I find it forces one to consider this more as an abstract focused on shapes, particularly the parallel ones of the foreground headstone and the opening in the memorial in the center BG.

Now, i really like this - a really striking visual sense of the graphic. The colouration doesn't do a lot for me personally - I think that parallel of spae would have a greater impact if left alone, as it were: it's quite weird, surrealistic, gothic enough, surely, without resort to these colours? It's a wonderful composition too. As much for the sake of I think everyone else is going to vote this down horribly, I'm giving you a high score, but i really would rather not have the colour ;-)

Excellent perspective and editing. Never thought a graveyard can be so "funky" ;-) 6

I found it difficult to score this at first. It is very different which I emmidiately liked, but the color was hard to get use to at first. As I looked more and saw the detail and the shadow I liked it more. I think it is very nice. 7

Ahh........A deeply provocative moment at obviously a very private 'Magnum opus'... I adore the show of 'limy green ' (moss? time? moles? wet grass? captured sun? )...and your own 'eye' almost 'preying' over it!
And of course there is the lurking invitation...and the separation! Well done, and thank you...it really takes my breath away!!

Ack. Over processed.....whent eh pic becomes about the processing instead of about the picture and its meaning....you know you went too far.
