Walter, I really like the black and white. IT just puts you into that place, if that makes sense. Sometimes black and white scenes like this in a graveyard give the older feel, but some respect too, I think. The only other thing that I think I would think of doing would be to take it from the other side so we don't see your shadow... and get the stones in front of you in a line... think that would make a really nice composure. *2 cents*

Good shot otherwise.

hi walter I kinda like the shot, the 16-35 lens is a nice lens, it gives it that fisheye look, but the shadow is a bit off putting.

Hmmm. Well, I intentionally took the shot with my shadow. Guess it didn't work, eh?

Actually, I liked the shadow and thought it added to the emotion .... and it's being so large in the frame kept it from looking accidental and more like you placed it there as a purposeful part of your composition.

I also preferred the B&W, but on my wacky LCD there is a slight blue tint to the sky which IMO takes away from the unity of the shot; personally I've never cared for the color/b&w mix. (But that may likely just be my own monitor ... or my eyes!)
