Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery

Entrance to Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery. Note the angle with trumpet. This is the twin angle to the previous posting.

This shot I played a little with Shadow/Highlights, Levels and Unsharp Mask.

Very clear and the colors are amazing as in the previous shots from this series. I think I might have tried making the statues upright.
John Eagle: Yeah, I was playing with the angle and cropping. I felt the angle helped add some energy or tension that was not there. I think the main problem is that there is no central focus. So I as trying to add some paint where it ain't. Thank you for the input.

I'm with Martin... the colours are fantastic. I like the slight tilt too, but I would have had the entire lighted cross in the picture.
John Eagle: I cropped the top edge of the star out. Again trying to create more of a focus or tension. Maybe instead I should have left some sky and let it be framed by the sky. Thanks for the input.
great lighting
John Eagle: Thank you. Lighting provided by Mother Nature and the cemetery flood lights.

Oh yes, I remember that wonderful angel, John. I like seeing it in context now here. The lighting and colors are so soft and lovely.
John Eagle: There are actually 2 angels. One on each side of the cross.

Interesting shot.

Suby
John Eagle: Thanks. I am curious when you say interesting what exactly you mean? I am learning a lot right now. Any constructive criticism is a help. I decided to crop out the sky and crop off part of the star. I also rotated the photo. In all felt this added some interest or attraction to the subject.

I always think of cemeteries as being dark places, so it's quite a surprise to see one lit up like this, with a bright star.
John Eagle: Same here. Most of the cemetery was dark. This piece was near the entrance, possibly why it was all lit up.
