Yes this is once again Cassie playyed by my very brave 17 year old daughter. The shots for this challenge were done completely in darkness at the Cemetery just north of Town. The exposure time was 30 seconds. The camera was set on a tripod the model was in the shot for about 15 seconds and then jumped out, as the camera shot for an additional 15 seconds. We had been shooting for about an hour (both model and photographer were calm and cool despite the surroundings and the time of day), when all of a sudden we heard a loud thud! I tried to ignor that it occurred, but my now very troubled model cried "did you hear that?"
Within seconds we bolted for the car and got the heck out of there. Great fun

This shot was the best of the shoot. I like the way the cross is covered by Cassie, as well, I like that you can see the entrance feature to the cemetery.

Hope this does well

yes, I like this too.
very well done.
I can't be bothered to read through the other posts, so sorry if this comment is repetitive:
I think what stops this shot from being a really great shot instead of just a great shot (an 8 instead of a 9 or a 10 if you will) is the light on the horizon.
If you could have had the sky/background black, then it would have turned it up that extra notch needed to put it amongst the greats!!!!
well done anyway.

A lot of noise in the photo. Enough that I find it takes away more then adds (if it was intentional). It is a nice double exposure and fits the challenge well but not my kind of photo. Double exposures have been a little to over done lately IMO even tho this is one of the better ones I've seen. Good luck in this challenge. <5>

Not sure if this would have been better with the "ghost" place next to the cross instead of over it. Not taking any deductions for it, just a thought.

Can't wait to see the specifics used here. This is one of the best of these type shots in the chalenge. Very moody.

I want my mommy!
This is very creepy, I like your choices in placing her so the cross is going through her. My new wallpaper from mr coley. Much better than how mine turned out. 10

I thoght about this for the illusion challenge... well i guess i will have to think about something else...

anyway i really like it... and im not sure i could go alone in the dark to a cemetery...

i think the dark eyes really effect the photo , as wel as the long mini tomb from her left. the compose is perfect off center and the light you brought on the ground,,,
i really like it...

very very very very very very GOOD!!!

Cool effect. I would have had her stand to the right of the lit grave marker. She could have filled up that empty space. As it is here, the fact that she superimposes the grave creates to much activity in that part of the image.

i like this one but I think the girl's eyes are over done or didn't need the makeup at all. 7

Spooky, reminds me of the ring. 9

Wow! Creepy image - reminds me of the ring. Well executed too, I think the only distraction (small detail) is that she is off-center in relation to the cross.

Very cool! I wish she stood more to the right of the stone. Great job!

Your model is great. It may have looked better if she was to the right of the cross. Good shot.

I'm loving all of these ghostly shots. Yours is particularly cool with the coloration. Love the night sky. Good job! (love the makeup)
