The American military cemetery at Madingley near Cambridge, England. There are over 3000 graves of American servicemen and women who died during the second world war, mostly air crew. It is a rather lovely place, beautifully upkept; sombre and dignified at the same time.

A lovely presentation of this place - I really like your choice of perspective and the wide view. And I trust this means you got the 10-22 repaired or replaced! :-)

I would have thought a 6+ score for this. I loved the contrast in colors and the green on the tree is quite beautiful. Also, you have the path leading the viewer to the tree is quite smart. Oh well, strange voting in this one.

Interesting subject. I am heading to Cambridge to live soon so will be sure to visit here, and DPC might see a few submissions from this place.

The colours are great, which contrasts significantly with the place that you have photographed, a somber place......A lot of people will photograph this and convert to Black and White, which means it tells a completly different story. i like how you, by using colouor, have emphasised the trees, and the peaceful nature of the place, rather that the sense of loss that a B&W image would have portrayed. In this, you processed for the Challenge.

The path nicely leads you to the main tree, while the large shaddow in the front also ties in well to the challenge topic. i didn't vote, but this image probably deserved to score closer to a 6 average overall........
