About the Image(s)

I took this photo driving through Kentucky a few weeks ago. I actually stopped in the middle of the town and there was the most beautiful cemetery. It was like the shadows were alive.

Very compelling and I really like the B&W. Can you mask out or darken the bush on the bottom left? I find it distracting.   Posted: 05/06/2022 08:20:25

I think you have captured a beautiful image Marianne. To my eye it is well composed and the focus is right on, you have captured a lot of detail. I would like to see the color original just for comparison but to me the B&W rendering is perfect. I agree that the shadow are quite stirring.   Posted: 05/06/2022 11:58:30

Thank you Lou. I really felt something special here. I actually shot it in black and white and I have no idea how to convert it. I love shooting in black and white.   Posted: 05/18/2022 18:57:19

Compelling is a good word and may I add - Good Eye. Just for kicks I erased the light bush. I do think it makes it better. Just IMHO.   Posted: 05/06/2022 16:01:29

Great image and as suggested removing the bush makes it stronger. Perfect in B&W.   Posted: 05/06/2022 20:05:38

Lovely image and perfect in B&W - and I agree with the others the bush at the front needs to be removed   Posted: 05/15/2022 06:39:18
