A beautiful use of leading lines through your choice of viewpoint, the fence line leading us strongly into the snowy image. Lovely snow bokeh. We can feel the quietude and reverence.

@Brenda: If you can feel the quietude and reverence, I've achieved a worthy goal. Thank you!

Julie L. Brown from Indianapolis, Indiana, United States

Really nice perspective and use of leading lines. I like the shallow depth of field. Would you believe that I used to seek out compositions like this? It reminds me of how I looked for patterns, lines, and textures when I first got into photography back in the 80's. I was young and lived in downtown Indianapolis. Back then I processed B&W in my bathroom darkroom!

@Julie L. Brown: Thank you for the specific comments. Your photography has changed over the years as your interests have changed. Isn't the computer an easier darkroom to use? Or, do you miss the actual dark room?

Julie L. Brown from Indianapolis, Indiana, United States

I love the digital darkroom! Working in the bathroom was limiting, and I don't miss the contact with chemicals either. Once I got into nature photography I started shooting color slide film because it was easier to share my travel images, but it was expensive. Digital has accelerated my learning and expanded my creativity. How about you? You are so good at processing, I would bet that you prefer digital as well.

@Julie L. Brown: I, too, love the digital darkroom. I love working in color, and a color darkroom was never an option for me. Working on the computer, with so much wonderful software, is a joy!

RBL from Oxford, United States

Wonderful mood you create beyond the gate ... fantastic capture and composition! I enjoy the peacefulness in the cemeteries.

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

Lovely shot. Somehow snow seems to make a cemetery seem more cheerful to me. Re your comment to Julie - I used to mess around a little with darkroom processing and printing years ago also, but I LOVE the computer. It's like instant darkroom on steroids. We can do so much more, and faster and easier and lots more creative!

@B. Thomas: Cemeteries have always been peaceful and beautiful places for me--often they have lovely landscaping, trees, etc. I, too, love digital darkroom! I completely agree with you. I can do so much more, and, I can work in color--my favorite.

The snow is a great contrast to the black fence. A well-chosen theme.

Arnd from Basel, Switzerland

Well chosen diagonal composition and superb low depth of field. The portrait format works very well here!

Snow brings such a silent cohesion to all things - perhaps especially in a cemetery.

Mmmm...am loving these snowy images. The black wrought iron is exquisite against the white.

Oh yeah...I have a very similar shot from one of our recent snows, love the vanishing point in this, well done Anita !!
