Very hard for a Dutchie to come up with a good title.
I was visiting the grave of my late aunt at the cemetery in Heemstede, The Netherlands, when I peeked into the little chapel and saw this gorgeous stained glass window at the back. The chapel was closed so I had to take a photo through the window.
The word 'crescendo' popped into my mind and as I was at a graveyard, there were a lot of dead people around. And there I found my challenge title 'Dead People's Crescendo'.
I couldn't avoid the chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, but by rotating the photo 180 degrees, they act more like bushes.

Post processing: use of layers, darkening, sharpening, cropping and rotating 180 degrees.

The plants really take away for me. focus seems a bit soft

interesting title. the image, though quite pretty, isn't too exciting but does hint at some symbolic meaning that relates to the title. It fulfills the challenge but isn't a big draw.

Nice idea. Fits well with the title. I feel that it's a bit out of focus.

Sounds more like a rock group than a movie title to me.
