Bravo. #1 is good, #2 is great. Wish I had taken these myself.

Which cemetary is this? How old are some of the headstones?

Thanks for your comments mtritt! It's located in southern Rhode Island. The oldest headstones I've been able to read have been from the late 1700's. A beautiful and interesting place.

They look straight out of a classic horror movie! Great use for B&W it really adds to the mood of the picture, was it done in postprocessing or on camera?

#2 is my favourite!

I like both but #1 is my pick. Had the focus been reversed (focused on the engraveing and not on the blank one) on #2 that would have been my favorite. Either way both are great. Bob

This was a fun shoot. The headstones are interesting to read. I like the countdown method several used like this one:
75 years, 7 months & 5 days....

I used Fred Miranda's B&W Workflow Pro plug-in for the conversions. Nice photoshop tool by the way.

I really like the B&W with these shots... I'd be willing to bet a sepia filter (or PS equivalent) would look really nice too.
