Oh wow! this is awsome!!
I'm sorry I didn't vote for the challenge, but if I had, this one would prolly get at least a 7 from mje (depends on my mood. I hate cemeteries ;-)
You turned what would otherwise be another harsh lighting shot into a brilliant ghostly photograph. And to think you're as young as you are...

I gave you a 5. I thought the concept/idea was good but overall the shot was a little 'flat', needed something to help 'bring it to life'/make it 'pop' more. Perhaps the color version may have helped with this, not sure. The frame also, especially at this size (due to the site/challenge restrictions) was a little too thick in my opinion (but some people like thick frames). It is/was also a fairly 'personal' type of shot (even if these are not your relatives), so, especially for a 'Free Study', when you are competing against so much 'variety', the personal type shots don't always do as well as some of the more neutral/general shots do, if that makes sense. To really 'nit-pick', 3 extra pixels (this is 637 height) would have helped, even if only a little. Again, just my opinion though. Good to see you entered this Challenge. edit:wording
