I came across this after voting. This effect is great. The lighting seems to have facilitated this photo. I am impressed with the result.

A lovely dramatic image with great low key colors to enhance the character. Bumping up.

wow - I like this - one of my favorite cemetary shots I think, very moody, the sky was excellent for you, great perspective and color - nice work :)

I like this, but on one hand it feels a little to processed, almost to the point of feeling 'fake'. It's very sharp and clear, which is excellent. I might have de-emphasized the sky a little bit.

very dark and sad. The placement of the headstone is right on, love the gloomy orange sky and church in the background. Very nicely done.

I love the dark feel of the image - very cold and eerie feeling.

Wierd to say this is my favorite so far...but it is. Even though the connection for me is a bit tenuous, the picture is very cool so 8 for now, with likely bump later.

add...bump to 10, Connection makes sense, maybe stronger connection if the tombstone was only a mothers. PP is super. Love to know a couple of your techniques.

Good luck, I see home page matl.

Nice photo

I'm going to bump this up. I just love the eary feeling from this photo and the fact it is out of the box. The saturation is wonderful, the building in the background is great, and what is happening in the sky is very appropriate for the feel. That bit of brighter blue in the background is a bit of a distraction from the feel, but overall, I think this is a good (8) for me.

Composition is ok. The subject matter could have been better. Nice image quality. Has potential of being really creative. -

Wow, there is something very somber about this, really stirs the emotions. Love the coloring, very dark with the hint of orange in the corner of the sky. Nicely done.

I really like the post production in this one. I've never been able to foster that dark look while keeping detail. Dramatic skyline. 7

Another strong image, but this one shows so much sadness, with the lighting and the darkness in this thought provoking image....

This doesn't really fit the challenge but is a stunning photo regardless.
01/02/2006 09:49:41 PM
Wow! The lighting & tone are perfect for such a sombre shot. The sky is particularly grim. Powerful image.

This is a very unusual mother shot, but very well done! It's dark and mysterious looking, but fits the challenge perfectly.
