It was overcast and rainy today, but the water helped pull the color out on this old cemetery wall.

I love brick work (walls, paths, etc.). Great perspective and exposure and my guess is that you are quite right about the rain pulling the colors out. Wet bricks are much richer in color.

Great shots. I love the mixed colors of that older brick. In the second shot, the brick in the foreground looks different (sharper, brighter) than the rest. At first, I thought two different types of brick were used or the foreground part was constructed at a different time from the background. However, I think I have figured out what is going on here. The foreground is one of those pillars visible in the first shot. The angle of that second shot doesn't give very good perspective to show what is going on. Perhaps if you had backed up a bit or had chosen a slightly different angle, the perspective would be better.

Thanks Cal. Does this one work better for you?

Of the two additional images you posted, the first still does not give a clear indication of why the bricks in the foreground look different. There is nothing to indicate a step change in depth. The last image, though not obvious, gives a clue with the inclusion of the rail at the top of the main fence. It is when you look at that, you can see that the brickwork in the foreground are a few inches out from the face of the main wall.

You are trying to show an architectural feature of this wall but it only starts to be clear in the last shot. All other technical aspects of all the shots are spot on.
