Interesting grave variations in one location, and just enough tie into a deeper meaning(?)

I am not sure I would call this garbage, it looks like somebody went to a lot of trouble and did the best with what they had available. I have a hard time calling what looks to me like a shrine, garbage.

Sad to see people have left garbage on a grave - very sad. For me, if you had cropped in more from the left and maybe not cropped off the top of the cross I would have scored this one point higher.

Is that a real cemetery!?

I think a different angle would have helped, as would cropping out the partial objects on the left. It seems too busy to me, and I had to look hard to find the trash.

I´m not fond at all of the whole idea of a grave being garbage and frankly I deducted 1 point for being in a gray area about meeting the challenge. Also, the shot itself is very "snapshot like", just looks like you stood there and snapped away, not really trying to find an interesting angle at this grave at all. On the plus side it´s exposed well even though I would personally have exposed it a little bit less to make it more dark and mysterious. Ended up giving it a 3.

Only the dead know the end of war, but it appears not the end of garbage.

like the shrine offering under the hut.
