Added to my favs but meant to comment>>> Seems as though this is what TM was made for. Lots of fine detail and texture brought out from fore to back. The forground branches and the looming clouds lend an ominous air to the pic.

If I had voted in this Challenge (and I've only just looked at the Top Ten) I would have said "There's Bear with that Church again." How many times have you used it now?

Well done with the 5th Placing. ;>þ

Nicely done. Pity about those phone lines. The wintry chill day is suitable. The title, IMO, could be the last part only: The Winter of the Bones.

Bear this is a great shot with loverly colorings, mood and perspective... but your going to have to find a new church to photograph or everyone will pick it as being yours, just like I have to stop taking photos of the Opera House here in Sydney

the DOF here is great...the lines of the headstones pull you back towards the trees. great shot!! bumped up from previous vote.

There are many graveyard scenes and I do like this one alot. Nice wide angle and the perspective is good. The ranches hanging over the top make for a nice frame. Too bad it's basic and you can't get rid of the power lines.
