I like the viewpoint that you adopted for this image shooting over the top of the grave markers to the distant landscape... what a beautiful location for the final resting place for one's ancestors.

The quality of lighting highlighting the landscape serves to enhance the visual impact of the picture.

There are so many elements here and all so well executed, that this makes a very very effective image. You have positioned yourself to get the cross well placed in the lower left. The sky is perfectly exposed. Nice contrast and sense of peace that green conveys. I know that before I visited England the first time, I thought only of London as England. Rural England now dominates my perception.

hello Lynne, nothing beats the charm of rural England and you have chosen so well here. great lighting to display this venerable landscape. I lived in rural UK for a long time and so miss it. Joni

I like your composition, the stones packed tightly here yet much open space shown in BG.
Might benefit from a little boost in contrast.

A little flat from pp I think - in fact a simple auto curve improves the contrast and colour considerably.
I feel a few steps to the left (although you'd lose height) might bring some lower grave stones into view and show a little more of the road making for a more open and flowing composition but I wasn't there so there was probably a reason for not doing so.
Excellent as is.
Oh to be in England now that summer's here. Anywhere but London!

Hi, I must have stood a yard from where you did but it was a really horrible wet misty day!
