War dead are pretty scary, not to mention the amount of money our gov spends on our military.......

nice perspective

Looks like there's some finger prints on the lens.

The shot is similiar to, but offers nothing new, on a scene i've seen many times before. The subject is quite strong, But something's off on the focus on the right (for my screen) and I wish you'd taken a new view: from the ground, along the edge of a tombstone, from a tree, one with fewer trees. It just seems too snapshoty for a higher score.

I hate to say this but this photo is almost peaceful. It may be the nice colors of the sky and the soft focus, BW may of been a bit more dramatic with a lower camera angle.

Nice photo, but the fact that Arlington National Cemetary would cause you to think about fear is incredible. I've been there multiple times, and like most people I know, it does nothing but instill peacefulness, reverence, and a thought of those that died to protect me and my families. I would consider this a very poor choice for an entry as "fear"

more grand than fearful

I can't tell if you meant for this to be a soft focus, or if it was an accident. It is too blurry on the right, too sharp on the left. Also, the colors are a little flat. Maybe play with a touch of saturation, and boost the contrast/brightness just a touch.

Why do most of the gravestones have misty halos?

This is an odd selection for fear. To me this symbolizes bravery, honor and courage. I am not docking points because many people fear war and fear the loss of loved ones. - There is an odd distortion in several areas, mostly on the right.

Was there moisture on your lense? Blurry spots.... and the earth seems slanted.

07/10/2002 02:02:00 PM
For those who served and those left behind

nice shot! I love the 'glow' on these markers. I would be curious to know how you did this... is it a lens filter? good shot! = 7 - jmsetzler

another cemetary although as it a nice day it doesn't portray fear
07/10/2002 12:11:00 AM
this is not fear
07/09/2002 10:39:00 PM
I just don't like the crooked horizon, but otherwize good picture
07/09/2002 07:33:00 PM
I liked this one...
07/09/2002 04:10:00 PM
IMHO. not sure about the blurred bits. looks like ya got fingerprints on the Lens. nice shot otherwise. maybe B&W would set the mood more and a grey, dull day. A bit too pretty for "Fear". "6" Dogman ;]
07/09/2002 05:15:00 AM
could have given a better caption though
07/09/2002 12:32:00 AM
a little better focus...
07/09/2002 12:01:00 AM
I like the slight blurring here...makes it look a little more mysterious = )
07/08/2002 11:44:00 PM
Not sure I care for the fuzzy quality of the image, although it has nice lines. Polarizing filter would help the sky... green is a bit drab. 5

Nice landscape. Shey.
07/08/2002 07:39:00 PM
Using one of those "soft" filters? (if not, clean your lens) Nice shot, more sad than fearful. (seems like a pattern) Well photographed. 6 Swash

Nice angle. did you add the slite haze or is it natural. Either way, I like it.
07/08/2002 09:30:00 AM
Theres the beginnings of a good shot here, but it needs something more to get the mood.
07/08/2002 01:50:00 AM
Nice angle. The out of focus area to the right draws the eye away from the lines of the photo. Maybe if it was more in focus. I just don't feel the fear in death so I am not sure I feel it with this photo.
