ANOTHER SET of GRAVE STONES of THE HAMILTON CEMETERY

By TimothyDMorton  
Taking a collection of illustrations, and once back at my I home I used the PANORAMIC function in Adobe Photoshop Elements 7, I merged a collection of hand holding as you can see from THE VISITORS illustration setting up even a mono-pod would have been possible.

Once it opened cropped to remove the empty space them resized to 600 px by ? but found that it looked cooler using the Infrared plug in under the conversion to B&W and thus you know the steps involved.

That one large WHITE monument suggests that sepia may be good for this scene. TG

Another record shot. Unfortunately, these places are usually hard to find a cohesive composition in. This is no different, in that there is no obvious main subject, the stones are scattered all over the frame and there are many distractions around the edge of the frame.
The IR plug-in doesn't appear to have made it very IR-ish, just low-contrast.

You might be better to concentrate on one or two monuments, and compose accordingly, to convey the sense of being there. This composition is too haphazard.
Just a suggestion, but if you really wanted this view, it would have been better to move forward to lose the nearest monument from the scene. It is cut in half anyway. Or maybe widen the zoom a touch and crop carefully to exclude details cutting the edges of the frame. Those you can't tidy up, I would consider cloning out.

It might also be better to shoot early or late in the day rather than when the sun is at it's highest. You will get far better modelling and texture.

The cut off obilisk in the centre bottom does your composition no favours I fear. The infra red effect is not very strong, in fact would not realise it had been done without your comment. You do need some kind of strong effect to lift record images such as this - dramatic lighting or weather.

You will get a better infra red effect converting to mono with the channel mixer and playing with the colour sliders - especially to red and blue ones.
