I was doing some walking around town and wandered into an old cemetery. Something about these small stones struck my interest. What do you think?

i like the depth of field, contrast and overall colors in this shot. it is an intriguing photo in that it makes you want to know more about this story.

the only things i might suggest is darkening those lighter stones in the background a tad to make them a lil less distracting.

The pick's very nice and really tells a story, but the stones behind still interfer. May be shootting another pick from an upper angle so there're auttum leaves all around.

nice pic. you still got color in your leaves? Leaves over here are either black or very harsh brown and curled up
Right now the weather is just non existent. I got gray skies, no sun, no clouds and no colors anywhere and there's 10-15m/s winds constant.
Gotta wait until the snow hits.

On top of the stone we can see the letters O V E. I imagine it says WITH LOVE. But where does it say the child's name?

Acapulco - yep. Actually a lot of leaves still on the trees here - it's' been a warm week so they've hung on.

Bynx - exactly - it doesn't have a name. That's one of the things I found interesting.
