Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Death (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon PowerShot A75
Location: Mountain View Cemetary - Oregon City
Date: Nov 30, 2006
Aperture: f/8
ISO: 50
Shutter: 1/15
Galleries: Landscape, Black and White
Date Uploaded: Dec 3, 2006

My first ever attempt at taking pictures in the fog. I thought that since this cemetary has been around for almost 200 years the fog would give it some nice effects.

Mounted on a tripod and shot away until the fog quickly left me.

Changed the curve ever so slightly to increase the contrast minute USM and that was it. It is one of my personal favorites.

Very good...I had given this a 7, but on closer inspection, this is a better than 7 image for sure...well done on the ribbon

This image imparts such a gloomy and eerie feeling of stark reality but its tonal beauty and its soothing spatial sense makes it a visual treat. Congratulations on your Red.

I really enjoy this misty view. There is early morning fog these days here as a warm front is moving through this region of Virginia. My wife and I get wth cameras out before sunrise, inspired by your photo.

I love B&W, cemetery, and fog shots.....what an awesome combination of all three!

I also love the skeletal tree.

Congratulations!

Ha! How exciting! I was so nervous all stinking week watching my score stay high. How addicting is the stupid update button? And I can only do it once an hour! :)

Thanks for all who voted and commented. Every now and then us 'point and shoot' guys manage to pull one out. ;)

Beautiful! Fog is great for photography, isn't it? It's one thing I miss here on Cape Cod; I thought we'd have a lot of fog, like we did when I lived in Carmel, and it turns out we don't get much at all. You did very well with this. Congrats on the ribbon!

Though graveyards were certainly a popular subject in this challenge, this shot really stood out above the rest. The ethereal mist is just awesome! Congrats on the well-deserved ribbon! :D
