Aperture: f/2.4
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1.6

My initial thought for this challenge was a cemetery shot on a cold winter day. What I ended up with, was a night shot one day after 11 inches of snowfall, followed by a full day of sunshine. This was the last shot I took at my second location. Worried about the numerous trespassing after sunset signs, this shot was quickly taken as the last of 21 shots. Cropped and resized for the challenge.

feels like it's tilting to the right a little too much.

Gee, another graveyard.......sigh

That is a spooky image. The snow deadens out sound even in my mind.

Wow, focus is incredible. This shot almost looks as though it's staged in a studio.
Brilliant!

This is a nice photo. Can't really tell if it is a reall site, or something that was put togethere. that aspect I don't like.

Although, the tree and snow look great, the stones look nice although they look almost too perfect.

Nice thought. A graveyard at night. I think a tighter crop, getting rid of the top pat of the tree might help here. My eyes keep going top the branches at the top of the image.

I enjoy the lighting. The tree seems too noisy and distracting. But overall nice shot

Nice work taking this at night, I like the deep contrast in snow and shadows, but the actual point of view isn't entirely interesting. 5.

this really is the best of the cemetery shots...dramatic & really conveys cold silent. The border does distract a little..makes my eye pull outward near the top of the tree.

My favorite gravesite shot. The night time works with b&w, snow adds enough light to make the composition dramatic. The tree adds an interesting element.

Very good photo - it conveyed silence for me. Good choice going with B&W.

One of the better graveyard photos. Could have been rotated a bit CCW.

Excellent photo.

If it were possible, I would have liked to see a slightly different angle so the branches don't actually touch the lines of the gravestones.. cool Idea.. Makes me want to go hang out in the graveyard here.

A very nice photo........ At first I was going to say I didn't like how the tree is there, and although I still don't, your title really helps.
