Scary stuff, Alan - who knows what is lurking there behind those gravestones!!??
Pity you couldn't add a few sound effects!!Wink
The sepia toning suits the image extremely well, the angle of the light and the shadows adds so much to the image.

Brilliant, Alan. I love the way the light picks out fractions of those foreground graves; but of course that is what drew your eye?
i wonder how this might work with that impressionistic processing style you have?

Well done!

The overlapping stones with consequent shadows add an air of mystery.
We want to know what the inscriptions are.
Beautiful use of light and sepia toning.

Got to agree with you there Alan.... I have a rather unhealthy fascination for them too. I love the processing which adds to this atmosphere of the shot. Another great! Smile

That involves camera work too, so not possible retrospectively.

Thanks, Jade.

wonderful balance of light and a well chosen tone for it doesn't allow the mind to be too poetic, or too neutral for that matter..
eyes explore every corner of it.. i dont find a sense of horror or sadness.. somehow i feel the freshness of the dawn and a serene awakening to a sublime truth.. i feel rejoiced to be awake to these senses.. i do feel a sense of company.. of lives that have been lived.. and a sense of union with the past, and the whole infinite span of time, the Time, through them.. Has a sense of eternity.. Something that has survived for so long would survive in the future too.. Just like Time itself..
and this much would not have been possible if it was not filled with so much gentility and harmony..
top class image.

Random light hitting stone edges, hints of stories of lives long since passed on. I like the way you have got down to grass level, and the way the stones seem to be sinking deeper.

Bag of laughs this morning!!
A very sad image. A real sense of isolation because of the area of darkness on the left of the image. Nothing sinister about this one despite the subject matter. Sensitive. Invites interpretation.

But I agree that they're fascinating subjects in their own right (the place, obviously, not the people ... although ... Wink). There's a beautiful peace in them which, although some people might find creepy because of the nature of their purpose, I personally find moving and uplifting.

I'm really sorry I can't open this image. The thumbnail looks fascinating, so I am going to vote on faith. I hope I solve this problem with the site soon.

I think your use of the low viewpoint combined with the letterbox format works really well here Alan. Some nice subtle light on the gravestones.

I just came back to visit this now that I seem to be able to view the photos again. I like the slightly dark mood, lightened by the light persistently coming in to brighten the world of grief.
