  1. We all have to admit, that old cemeteries draw our attention. There's something powerful and mysterious about them!

    Show us your pictures of the old tombstones, graves, cemeteries !

    Here is the first one:

  2. Dez, the last one is very impressive - the dark graves with the lights of the modern city !(NY) in the background - really cool man. Next time I come to NY I will try to get to this point. Can you give the location of this spot on googlemaps? Are you allowed there without any restriсtions in the evening?

    Hi Dez, is there any place in the 5 boroughs that you haven't shot yet?:biggrin:

    Assume this is the cemetry on Laurel Blvd - I see it all the time going to the airport, but haven't gotten around to go there and shoot.

    I agree with Nik, the last one is terrific.

  6. I recently posted some of these in the Miscellany section, but maybe worth adding here

    An old grave in Greenland:
    369144752_scPFv-XL.

    It looks like a pile of rocks on top of the permafrost, but peek between the stones and you find...:eek: :

    Here is one on Baffin Island in Canada, anybody home?:

    Not in that one, but nearby another one...

  8. I have posted this in the past, but it fits here. I love this shot but seem to be in the minority on that.

  10. Frank, simply great work, especially I love that first one with everything in BW and the door in ice-blue! Very creative! As if the door is inviting you to enter the underground world. Wow!
     
  11. Man this is really impressive! It would be very interesting to know who these poor fellows were... The guy with a rifle picking inside the grave - cool stuff!
     
  12. Matt, love your shot - very artistic - excellent colors, composition and play with a DOF!
     

  13. Pet cemetery - this is something! Royal cats and dogs graveyard! :biggrin:
     
  14. I think the key success factor is finding an intresting angle and typically it requires getting low to the ground :eek: 
     
  15. OK, guys here another one from me, taken in New Zealand this spring:

    And I know this one is not exactly about graves...... but those who walk out of them at night.... So sorry for going a little away from the main subject of the thread, but I could not resist :)
