Went out to some local cemetery's today and grabbed a few shots, most are black and white just because I liked the mood it gave, let me know what you think. Thanks.

Just wondering..

No, I probably should, but I had my two children there with me, so it can get a little difficult LOL. Is there a particular reason why you asked?

I am definately digging 5 and 6... the tilt on 6 adds a nice aspect...

Thanks, I don't usually like selective coloring, but thought it fit okay here, glad you like them.

Nice. I love taken walks and photos in cemetaries, especially the old ones. Love the 2nd color and the B&W's you are right about the B&W working real well with tombstones.

Very cool, and I am rteally digging the selective coloring....I almost didnt notice it was done that way. I am glad people like taking walks and doing shots in cemetaries, I cant bring myself to doing, I figure Iw ill be spending enough time in one soon enough, but hopefuly not too soon. Looking good!

Nice shots... the black and white was definitely the right choice, it really works for these shots... I especially like 3 and 4, the composition in 3 is tremendous...

Wow thank you everyone!
I actually felt really bad taking pictures in the cemetery, I kept thinking that I'm going to hell for this. lol. At the same time though it was something different and I love the art that is in the older cemeteries someone put so much time into those stones.

Wow!

How did I miss this thread. These are gorgeous. Additionally, great use of b&w as well as selective coloring.

Thanks. I made sure I was respectful, though it was hard for my three year old to understand that concept, but he didn't do too bad, next time he's staying in the car lol!

I absolutely love number 3 (although they are all great shots!!!). 3 is just very powerful and jumps right off the screen at me! Great job! I too frequent cemetaries, especially the old ones that no one visits any more. I like to read the headstones and try to figure out who was what part of teh family, speculate why they died (a child of 5 for instance based on the time period and so on). There is an awesome cemetary that Jay and I went to in Schenectady that has a whole back section that has basically been abandon and let grown over......beautiful place.

I guess I stopped seeing cemetaries as negative or "down" places when I started doing Honor Guard funerals a few years ago. It was such an honor to put a WW2 veteran to rest with the respect he deserved. I guess I feel that these are places where you can choose how to look at them....sad because they died or beautiful because they celebrate the lives they lived.

Very nice work! #3 and 6 are my favs...#3 just jumps out at you!

Looks kinda like the Nathan Hale cemetary in Coventry down by the lake (no, I'm not a cemetary buff - I grew up a mile from there and we went there on a school trip way back when)

Tom you nailed it! I live right on Pucker St and had never been there before so I decided to check it out, you'd never realize how big it is by looking at it from the road, I was impressed. Thanks for all the comments again, I didn't think I would get such a good response, maybe I should take more cemetery photos LOL
