If you were going for a calming visual on this, you definitely achieved that goal. I would have to say the all over is fantastic, great subject matter, sharp color and dramatic effect using the depth of field and perspective. Very good contrast between shadow and light, and limited negative space pulls the eye along the left to right flow without losing us at the edges. Very good Point Of View (POV). The horizon line looks tilted, making me wonder if the camera or the image was turned slightly counter-clockwise, but it seems to work well with the image as a whole.
vision- 5 stars. what i see, is not visual. what i see, skips my eyes and goes to my sense of feel. i feel this. the perspective of the capture communicates to me. it had depth, and blur, and is ominous. the subject matter being somewhat a mystery in itself, the unknowns.. are rendered visually more that effectively by this capture. originality. 5 stars. it is not like i have nolt "seen" tombstones, but never has one hauted, and talked to me. thisx piece has a life of its own. strage comment for a marker of the dead. all the "unknowns" of death , and dying are rendered nonverbally , and very effectively. so i try to verbally render that which i am speechless about. your gift ttansends all language barriers. my words pail in comparison. technique. 5 stars- i am not a photog, but i never saw , and was afftected by such a site. therefore i conclude that it is not the subject matter, but the presentation of it, that makes tis gifted. a masterpiece. impact- 5 stars- i am sppechless, and affected so deeply by this. every time i see it. i ptefer to continue feeling this. it calls out to me, as if it has a life of its own. most "picture" freese a moment in time. it is quantum mechanics! but, this does not freese time. i has a life of its own, it goes on and on. a masterpiece.

Lovely image! I always resort to black and white for shots like this. A lot of that is because I love B&W photos, but also because I can never seem to get anything I'm happy with in colour. You've really brought this to life (so to speak ).
