The use of TTL adds a very becoming feel to this scene…like the low angle of view and the hint of sun…not much for graveyards, but this appeals to me somehow…nice work!
There’s something very confronting about graveyards but I love the beautiful old headstones and the strange sense of calm walking through this place.Really appreciate your lovely comment Rick, thanks so much, I hoped the TTV would add a sense of age/nostalgia to the shot.
It most certainly did…
Love your approach to this theme…. love the low angle and tones… : ))
Such a lovely comment, thanks so much Jenny. Some of the headstones in this cemetery are incredibly beautiful and belong to the pioneers of the township of Uralla, hence the title :D
Hi Bill :DThanks so much, was actually very frustrating getting this with the sun behind the headstones, either too bright or silhouetted… finally managed a just right.
cool, your effort definitely paid off :-)
any of them Captain Thunderbolt?
byefrombill, who vaguely remembers doing assignments on the good old captain, hehe
hehe, same cemetery but I didn’t bother with his, it’s actually pretty boring and has been cemented.
Great image well captured
Thanks so much Dave, appreciate your comment.
Love the gritty look as well as the tombstones….lot of detail and the gray seems to devour the rest of the pic….
Appreciate your lovely comment OldManTed, thanks so much.
you definitely get the soft feel from that old lens unlike any digital filter could reproduce. looks like it could be a still from “Nosferatu.” very well done.
Thanks James, you really can’t beat the effect from these old cameras, dirt and all and that’s a huge compliment, love that film, classic
