Happened on Mel Blancs grave at a recent trip to an LA cemetery. I know a lot of people grew up and learned a little sarcasm along the way thanks to this man. He may have passed from this reality almost twenty years ago, but his legacy lives on.

I grew up with this guy and that makes this image interesting, but photographiclly there is nothing that sets it apart from other grave yard images. Good processing though.

well it's just another cemetary shot. for a higher vote from me, you should've been a bit more creative.

Technicals: harsh lighting. static composition.
Feel: gets the dreaded moniker of "snapshot".
Score: 4

Fits the challenge well. The composition is a bit static and lighting a little flat. 5

A grave stone does work for the challenge and the message is quite amusing, but I feel like there may have been some more interesting ways to capture this image. Perhaps some dramatic lighting, early in the morning or late in the afternoon; maybe black and white would have worked better. Also think about angle when you're shooting a static and relatively mundane subject. Like if you shot from really low to the ground, you might have been able to get some decerning billowy clouds or sometihng to spark that mood a bit more. Of course these are just some ideas. The concept works I think, just think about looking at in from all different angles and modes of lighting and consider the meaning of everything that appears in the frame. 8o)
