Challenge: The Paranormal (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-400D Rebel XTi
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6
Location: Graveyard
Date: Apr 14, 2008
Aperture: f 22
ISO: 100
Shutter: 2Sec.
Galleries: Emotive, Portraiture
Date Uploaded: Apr 14, 2008

This was taken using a 2 second exposure in which I took a step forward when the shutter opened and then froze to create the ghost effect. Converted to jpeg, black and white, levels, unsharp mask, save for web, and one last unsharp mask to please the sharpness hounds! :)

Not sure how this one will do... Hoping for a 6.2 but we will see...

This did quite well and it certainly should have. This just pulls me into the scene to experience all that is going on.

I didn't vote in the challenge but I really like this picture. it's got some great emotion in it. The one thing I dont like is that int eh B&W you tend to get lost in the dark trees, I think a different postion might have helps (not sure how without seeing the area though). nice work though

This is great, wish the background was a little less busy, otherwise a very emotive shot.

A very morbid concept, but well done. Your ability to make it look this way with such limited editing amazes me. Well done.

She should be closer to the grave so you could crop closer on everything. I also wish he were a bit more fleeting/see-through. Still a nice photo.
