Your picture reminds me of the HBO series "Six Feet Under". The show and your picture are both excellent !

Congratulations on your win. This is great photo. I like the angle you chose to get your shot. Really nice.

For those who insist that only those with high end cameras ever win, take a look at the camera she is using.

You deserve this win, Christy.

What I love most about this shot are the colors - they are so clean and vibrant. The lush grass and the wonderful sky almost makes you want to be in the picture, but then the actual topic of the shot brings it all back into perspective. That said, it does show a positive feeling and not a black and white, gloomy shot that is often associated with gravestones or cemeteries. Coupled with the challenge of freedom, I think showing this brighter side honors the memory of what these people fought and died for. Without their efforts we wouldnt have the lush grass and bright skies that sometimes we take for granted. I also really like the composition of this shot. There isnt really anything I would change. Great shot!

Wonderful coloring and composition. The only distraction is the large shadow on the lower left corner that gives the appearance of your shadow being in the picture. It's probably a tree or something else, but that's the appearance it gives.

This is my favourite shot in the challenge, wonderful!

The only criticism is to take the exposure down a 1/2 step if you could do that with your camera. Otherwise, this is a photo that stands on its own as an example of a very well-known concept.

Really good composition. The front gravestone really brings your eyes to it. The others being in pretty good focus makes your eyes wonder around the scene. Nice. All the shadows and reflections in the grass really brings them to life. The blue sky and the clouds really add a beautiful depth of field.
