Last in a trilogy of graveyard shots...the first was uploaded in June and the second a couple of weeks ago. Quite a bit different from my normal stuff and I am not really expecting much attention....but it is good to try something new from time to time Wink

Well spotted. Think it would look very effective in colour!

The tones in this are lovely. I'm not at all sure it would have the same dignity in color.

You're right Martin it is good to try something new from time to time, I sometimes do but keep the images to myself rather than sharing them, maybe I should upload a few to gauge opinion. This image works really well for me and I do think it is perfectly suited to mono, great work.

I think some deepening of the darkest tones using the black point slider in levels, and a strongish vignette would pull the viewer into the very short Do F you've used and emphasize the sense of mystery and concentrate the eye on the leaves.
It's very nice idea and well shot.

A few thoughts, anyway....for your consideration.

Cheers
Bill

Thanks for your UA Bernard....most unexpected Grin

Thanks Bill for the info. Agree about deepening the dark tones but clueless about how to apply a Vignette. As you may have noticed from previous comments I spend very little time editing and spend even less time exploring Photoshop Wink

Fascinating places these old graveyards - I've wandered round a few but never got anything worthwhile. I like this one though - it has a feeling of quietness that seens to suite the subject very well
