I don't think this will do well; sure, it's a strange scene - though actually dravestones piled against the walls of churchyards are not a rare sight in London churches by any means, though I don't expect many will have seen them. But I think this is perhaps too creepy, too nasty for popular approval. I expect 5.5.

i love this. definitely one of my favorite shots from this challenge. i was watching the movie 'closer' the other night, and saw a scene very much like this--but as it was only split second of a shot, i likely would have missed it had i not already seen, and been interested in this photo.

awesome light and processing...very eerie and very well done!

Too creepy? Too nasty?
Maybe too hauntingly beautiful!
Congrats on your top 10 finish Ed.

I think this one should have brought you a blue one. It's exactly the creepiness which you mention that makes this shot so great.

Excellent-composition..tone, detail-it has a beautiful haunting effect. Travels to the right, and I am afraid to go on-has a great movie like feel to it.

Outstanding lighting. One of the better ones in the challenge. Excellent angle and like the way it is cropped, with light fading off to the right.

very strange. it doesn't even look real to me -- I am sure it is, but my mind can't imagine a real setting like this.

Something in this image just intrigues me, and I am not even sure why. I just didn't really respond to the ones in the challenge that set out to be "creepy", yet this one is, but it seems naturally so. Wish I could epxress this more clearly.

I am making two passes on this Challenge. I will vote on your photo then return later(before voting is over) to comment on what I like and dislike about your shot. You can take the comments however you wish and I will try not to be mean. Just don't take it the wrong way.

Nice work. A little dark on the top right. Probably not avoidable if you shot at night. Bumping up.

This is fantastic. What a great subject and what a terrific capture. Focus is beautifully sharp. Contrast and levels are very nice. Colors work great. This feels like a ribbon contender to me. Good luck.
