I like it. A lot actually. My first thought was the fanned out feathers on the wing tip of a bird like an eagle. Nicely chosen angle to shoot from.

Good eye Mike. I love this shot. I would have loved to have spent more time there in the cemetary. I should have too since we were all waiting on you :P

Yeah I figured as much. I was trying to slog up that hill so everyone wasn't waiting on the girl and here you were eyeing shots like that. It looks like one that would require several minutes of "looking" to find. Nice one.

Now that's an incredible piece of work, Mike. The way the stones are splayed like a hand of cards is striking.

Thanks Mel, I don't mind making people wait on the old man... LOL and this time it did pay off. That composition just clicked into view.

And thanks Jer. Yes it was a very striking arrangement. And I love how the textures in these old cemetaries are always amazing.

I'm actually beginning to think this version is a tad dark so I plan on another run thru the raw file...

Mike
