I took this picture while visiting France earlier this year. Everytime I look at it, I just get this feeling in my stomach. Of course this is partially due to the emotional effect of the picture. What do you guys think of it? I have done no editing to it whatsoever.

Good shot.

Simple colors drew a clear line between life and death; pattern of crosses represent peace of heaven;a big tree standing out at the perfect location shows us the vitality of life......all give a strong impact.

It's certainly one of those photosI would stare at and thnink. Nice work.

The sky is bit too plain, but I am afraid a vivid sky would destroy the mood.

Yes, the sky isn't very vivid. I feel like it's better that way though. It adds to the sombre feeling that you get from the picture. A bright sky never seems right in a cemetery- especially one like this.

I really like it. I'm glad there isn't a very dynamic sky that would take away from the photographs subject matter.
