Thanks Craig,

I could brighten it up but I think it would miss the darkness effect, which really fits into the subject

Just to humor us, play with Levels on this picture. I think you might find that, with a little more contrast, the gravestones would stand out more but there'd still be a dark and brooding effect over all.

Nice, I like the European cemeteries. Reminds me of Vincent Price movies
You just don't see the large stones and mausoleums here(Canada) much.

We have some nice older cemeteries in my area that include mausoleums:

This was taken in an old cemetery behind an old church in an old, dilapidated town on the Hudson River.

I love cemeteries.

Nice, sigh the only large cemetery close to me that has masoliums and such does not seem to allow photography.

Last club trip to Mount Plesant cemetery in Toronto resulted in said members being ejected by the staff for the crime of pointing loaded cameras. Or maybe it was the tripods.

Very nice shot, the dark really helps I think.

@bcoultry
Your shot is very nice especially the fading it reminds me of those very old photo's. Maybe some sepia toning to make it complete.

Greetings,
Frank

I think just a touch of sepia might be nice. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try it.

Thanks everyone for comments. I didn't have time to play with it these days but I'll certainly try.
