Unexpected Peace by mental Unexpected Peace by mental
A historic cemetary located a few streets away from my apartment. Most of the graves at this site are over 150years old.

Other than the colour, there has been absolutly no manipulation. If the request is there, I can post the original photo for comparison.

Taken: Kodak DC240
Cropped, framed and coloured in Photoshop.

I'm looking at both photos right now... and i think i like that one better. Why? Maybe because it's not so "friendly" like the other one.

Nice shot! The strong vertical lines of the tombstones and the trees really draw your attention. The colors look great too.

Wonderful choice in toning! Such a cold and stark feeling ... which I link with the reality setting in of death.

i agree with the tone choice for this matter - very nice effect of coldness and therefore sadness. well, at least that's my association.

very rarely does a grave yard shot catch my eye this is the first for a long while. i love what you have done with the colour and the framing of the main stone and the back drop. the picture has a very somber atmosphere which suits it well. how ever i think it is a bit washed out prehaps if you had darkened it a bit before colouring it that would not of happened. all in all a good shot

nice, i like how you've altered the colours for a washed out / dead look to the photograph, i was going to ask how long ago it was taken until i read description / colours mannipped :) (Smile)
