IR? awesome shot. are you saying you are envious of the dead, or that death comes from envy? karmat

Disturbing that you would title this "Envy", but a nice black & white photo.
10/18/2002 02:31:00 AM
Great composition.

What are you saying? Do you envy the dead or the place beyond death? I like the colors or the lack of.

love the IR
10/17/2002 12:07:00 PM
very morbid

Love the picture. Wonderful, great quality, exceptional.....but don't get the title.
10/16/2002 09:55:00 PM
I love this shot - I wonder how powerful it would be without the title though - try shooting the same picture with a lower angle (more toward the ground, and shooting up - make the monuments more monumental). Unique take on Envy. (7) MarkRob

I'm not sure I understand where the envy comes in here but it is a really interesting and well done picture.
10/16/2002 07:45:00 PM
Very interesting photo of a cemetary. I'm not quite understanding the title and what envy has to do with death unless that is what you are envious of....being buried in 6 feet of ground
10/16/2002 06:49:00 PM
Since you do have a title, I am having trouble with it in regards to the photo. I like the shot fairly well - (I DO like the IR) - but the composition is lacking *something* for me. lhall
10/16/2002 05:42:00 PM
Is the envy aspect a bigger grave marker? Nice photo - I like it. Is this infra red?
10/16/2002 05:10:00 PM
I envy you because you have an IR lens, but I think this picture is not saying what I think it's trying to say.
10/16/2002 10:01:00 AM
I don't get it?!?! Envy the dead?! It's a very nice pic, I must admit, but I don't get the connection - hence only 6/10.
10/16/2002 12:02:00 AM
I envy them too.
10/15/2002 09:30:00 PM
I like the IR that folks have been doing lately, but I'm not seeing how a graveyard (how ever nicely shot) relates to envy (or any other sin). I'll revisit this later in the week and see if I can make a connection to the challenge. Excellent technical execution! ~MyQyl~
10/15/2002 07:15:00 PM
Extreemly well done. I love infrared b/w. Nice job... and great meaning.
10/15/2002 03:42:00 PM
nice infra-red but kinda lame subject, doesnt have "eye catcher"

such a beautiful picture such a great effect but I think ur stretching envy a bit unless you're morbid any you cant tell that from your title so next time if u want to show ur personality perhapse really think about your title (not that any of mine are good but) 4 Mags Coyote
10/15/2002 07:22:00 AM
Envy of the dead or envy of the living?! The picture is great, how have you done this? Infrared? On a digital camera?
10/15/2002 06:09:00 AM
I love the infrared effect. But I'm not sure I understand the title. Are you envious of the dead? Or maybe the dead are envious to the living? Damn you, you will win again! I'm envious!!! PERFECT! You are so sly!!!!! 10 ...But just wait, my IR filter is in the mail!!!

surreal.. infrared? If not then how? I love the effect it creates though. To be honest, I'm not sure if you're suggesting you envy the dead because they're dead (my original thought) or because they're someplace better now (the feel I get from the white) but either way I love the environment this picture creates so much I can't give it less than a 10. wingy

You are quite a weird one eh?
10/14/2002 11:54:00 PM
Nice IR shot, but why envy? Envy for whom? A sucidal? I am not sure this really meets the challenge, but it is an excellent photo, lol!
10/14/2002 10:52:00 PM
I'm still trying to figure this one out. Envious of.....death?
10/14/2002 10:46:00 PM
The dead envy the living. We will go to them, but they will not return to us.
10/14/2002 09:41:00 PM
doesn't make me think of envy, but nice picture.
10/14/2002 09:24:00 PM
Really good picture.
10/14/2002 08:26:00 PM
While a fantastic photo....I don't understand why it is in this challenge....perhaps I am the moron.....anyhow.....wonderful pic!
10/14/2002 08:13:00 PM
Great effect, succinct statement
10/14/2002 07:17:00 PM
Very well shot. Nice use of B&W. I don't quite understand the relation with the theme, but the shot is extremely niec to look at. 8/10
10/14/2002 06:35:00 PM
I really love the infared effect in this shot. Envy though? Kinda a scary thought. Good work.
10/14/2002 06:25:00 PM
excelent pic for envy
10/14/2002 06:17:00 PM
i think this is one of most nicest pictures i have seen , in a while, and i understand what u are trying to say
10/14/2002 05:44:00 PM
wow! I have to say, honestly, i don't find the relationship right away, but the photo is breathtaking. top 3.
10/14/2002 04:08:00 PM
Envy??? My first thought was sloth, and then - thank goodness it didn't say lust!!! ;) Anyways, it's a beautiful shot even though I'm not sure how it relates to the 7 deadly sins. Maybe because the 7 of them will put you here... 7 shedonist
10/14/2002 02:49:00 PM
I can't wait for your explanation ---- why is this envy? It's a pretty decent infrared. Good DOF.
10/14/2002 12:32:00 PM
Why is this envy? the photo is great, but I don't get how it relates to the theme.
10/14/2002 11:06:00 AM
I am wondering where you live. It must be way up North to be able to take a picture like this. My guess is Norway or Sweden, or Maybe Alaska. Great Picture I am giving you a (8)
10/14/2002 10:40:00 AM
Confused...are you envious of the dead?
10/14/2002 10:34:00 AM
i love the exposure on this shot.
10/14/2002 08:40:00 AM
Not sure how this one works?
10/14/2002 07:00:00 AM
Beautiful shot, needs just a little straightening to be just perfect.

Neat IR.
10/14/2002 01:38:00 AM
nice infared image--excellent detail--great pictue and i like this image a lot--10bobgaither
10/14/2002 01:24:00 AM
Love the Shot! but I find it curious that you think this Envy, you don't want to die by any chance do you?
10/14/2002 01:03:00 AM
This is a very good shot; IR, I guess. But the sin of "envy" escapes me entirely. PM me to let me know what I missed if you want. 3 Jak
10/14/2002 12:22:00 AM
I'm guessing this is an infrared shot, and I think it's really cool. Your title has me really thinking about the image, but I can't get much more out of it than shock value.
