This photo was taken at a memorial found in the center of the Providence College campus. The rows of stone crosses with some flags sprinkled inwas quite beautiful. I was dissapointed in the blown areas in the back.

nice shot, is this a military cemetary?, if so why is it in the middle of a college campus?

Very nice, Vanessa. I'm not sure you could have done much better to avoid the over-exposed background without loosing a lot of detail in the foreground. I think the exposure is very good and you did a great job on the composition.

Providence College is a catholic and Dominican college. The memorial is for those who served their church as well astheir country in various conflicts.



My daughter spent some time at the college at hockey camp this summer and I had the opportunity to walk around and photograph the beautiful campus and its buildings.



One of the first things my daughter mentioned when we arrived to pick her up is that the girls all had lunch with the nuns and friars in all their customary finery.

I love to see memorials like this. Even without the flags, the peace that surrounds the site and the information on the individual markers makes it worth seeing. The flags add something extra special.
