This is the Dexter Mausoleum at Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati, OH. A really cool place to shoot. Can you tell I like black and whites?

The Dexter Mausoleum located in section 20 of Spring Grove Cemetery is a private, family mausoleum, often mistaken for one of Spring Grove's three chapels. Dexter was a English immigrant - a "whiskey baron." His mausoleum was intended to resemble a Gothic Revival "funerary monument." Designed in 1869, it boasts the only two symmetrical buttresses in Cincinnati. It is registered as a historical landmark.

I would have like to have seen this taken from the left side of the church so the tree there in the front wouldn't be such a distraction; otherwise the tone are great and this is a good photo

good one--contrast perhaps a bit too much for my taste

It may just be me, but I am drawn in more by the tree and the snow than by the the church.

I would like to see this from a different angle, so that maybe that tree branch wouldn't be such a distraction.
