About the Image(s)

This was taken at the Tahoma National Cemetery (near Seattle) on Memorial Day.

ISO 400, 1/2000, f3.2, 200mm Canon 5D3.

Taken in late afternoon. Was a little rainy. There were a lot of people walking around which is one of the reasons I shot at 200mm. I thought the 200mm would also help to compress the photo.

I tried to capture the repetition and shear number of graves. I added grass to the walkway in Affinity Photo to remove the distraction.

Dan, You made the needed change by making the path into grass. The image has impact; no suggestions for change.   Posted: 06/12/2020 01:07:44

Very poignant and applicable to the season. In this time of lockdowns and fear of the world, it's good to remember those brave men and women who got past their fears and faced our enemies on our behalf.

Your composition and processing present s well-finished piece, suitable for the wall. No suggestions from me.   Posted: 06/12/2020 13:10:57

The 200mm lens was a great choice. The repetition and angle make a great composition and the select depth of field adds interest. You took care of the one problem--GREAT JOB!   Posted: 06/12/2020 16:05:55
