Challenge: Cemetery (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Nikon D70
Location: Mount Pleasent Cemetery near Bradford, Ontario

Aperture: f 9
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/300 sec

Ok...this shot, and the others from the shoot, scared the crap out of both the photographer and the model. (I will post some of the outtakes after the challenge.) This shot kept us from a good nite sleep, as we were afraid that the ghost of Cassie was lurking nearby :)

Not sure if this is what the site has in mind when they thought of this challenge, but we had fun taking the shot

Hope it does well,

Coley

The evil look of the little girl is great. The only thing I see that is a bit of a distraction in the sun on the tip of her middle finger, but thatís being picky. Nice Shot

Creepy! I'm sure you didn't freak out a lot of people doing this shoot. :-)

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.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I don't think I care for the idea. Technically it is good. Maybe a little more punch if done at night.

The content of this photo is not apealing to my personal tastes because this is a young childs gravesite however I like the contrast and quality of the photo. Also it is more original than some of the others here.

I know this must a take on the ring, I never saw the movies, but this just looks creepy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

My pick of the bunch. Brilliant idea, make-up, and PS treatment of her eyes. The crop is rather tight (I'd sort of like to see the top of the headstone), but this way we get a good look at those spooky eyes, so I can see why you did it like this.
I'm not usually a fan of b+w, but in this case it's great. Well done!

This picture creeped me out lol, the look on her face is going to give me nightmares. Nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Disturbing in a way that makes me not like this very much. Comp's good. B&W works. Levels are good. Focus is terific. In short, a great capture of a subject that troubles me.
