Excellent use of contrast and B&W here.

Very nicely done. Says "Letting go" in a true way.

This works beautifully, precisely emotional.

Great shot. I would have lightened up the grave stone to make it a little more obvious.

Perfectly composed, perfect viewpoint - watching her grief but not intruding. I wonder if a little fill in light on the headstone would improve this, just to bring out the detail a touch more? I really like this very much.

Why the umbrella on a seemingly sunny day? Otherwise great

Nice shot, I wanted to do the same, but couldn't find the chance. Nice choice of B&W and interesting play with shadows.

One of the best in the challenge. Great composition and exposure. I particularly like that her face is hidden by the umbrella and the contrast of her blacks running perfectly with the direction of the shadows. Hope this gets top 3. 10

Great use of the theme. I can feel the pain of letting go in this way!

like the black and white and composition, but why an umbrella on a sunny day?

Nice composition and idea. Technically sound as well. Don't see much I'd change.

The umbrella seems out of place since I can't tell it's raining. I would have liked some light and some detail on this side of the tombstone. I like the tones of the photo and the idea fits the challenge.

Good shoot. Very emotive too. I really like 1 to 1.3 stops more to reveal clearly the grave´s name. May be you had used som kind of eveluative or weighted metering that makes this commom mistakes. Your dynamic range seems to allow you to do a 1 to 1.3 stops adjust without blow higlights.

nice emotive piece. Like the addition of unbrella (although is it raining?;)

Beautiful shot.

Good shot. If probably be most improved if you showed just a little bit of the head, still covered but maybe a part of the face should show.
