    very lovely shot, Barbara..indeed a spiritual place and its shows well through this image nicely done with the b&w..would possibly crop the image from the lower right to place the grass against the wall in the lower left corner, but cant tell if that would cut off too much from the right side of the frame to keep the same ratio..just a thought :) also, is some halo-ing going on around the tombstone and wall..figure that is from reducing the highlights in the sky..think it works good here however, adds to the spiritual feeling, just something to look out for in the future :)

      aww... thank you so much for your warmhearted and most helpful comment Addam.... i really appreciate your words... especially the ones about the halo effect... in fact... i thought i cared for this problem... but actually not well enough.... i was too much focussed on the dramatic of the sky... i wanted too much and cared too less.....am so glad you helped me to make it better in the future.. am really really so happy you spent this time to explain and help me. I will adjust it and upload again.... again... a huge thank you to you !!!!!!

      i know the feeling all so well! has been a troublesome part of my photography many a times..always focusing on certain parts allowing the entire scene to slip away..is true for my old compositions..even present ones at times! especially with waterfalls..focus so much on the fall that i dont even see whats in the rest of the scene..a beautiful fall that is ruined by distracting branches, blemishes..though that is not the case with your capture! can only better our arts by learning what others see..am very thankful for all the critiques that i have received and am very happy that you accept them so well..shows how much you want to capture the beauty around you and share it the best you can :) is truly a pleasure my dear
