Not sure if it counts as landscape or not, but didn't consider it as architecture...

Lovely shot, great use of light to create the emotion and feel of the graveyard.

I'm not sure if the tree on the left is adding anything, so might have framed a little further right still using the branches at the top.

<Moderator hat on> On another note can you please keep the maximum size of a photo to about 700 or 800 pixelsfor the longest size to make it easier for people not using large high res screens to view without scrolling. <Moderator hat off> :-)

Perfect exposuredoing justice tothe mood there (one can sense it without having to be there!!)Apart from the beauty of each element in your capture such as the dazzling dew on the grass, the colours of the leaves in contrast lighting,I also liked your arranging the shadows of the gravestones as the diagonal axes leading to the corners of the frame, compositionally!

Thanks for the great comments - and apologies for the size of the shot - it wasn't until iIt had started to add the topic and was so slow to load that I realised I hadn't re-sized it...

Ihave sincecropped the tree and think it does actually look better if I crop half of the tree out - it acts almost like a frame, so thanks for pointing that out.


Although it doesn't look as good when it's smaller :sad:

It know bigger is usually better (I know, I'm 6'6" tall), but we try to keep things down a little to keep the site fast and enable people to view the whole shot in one go to get the full impact.

I agree the crop certainly works better so that is great!
