Strong graphical image. I don't necessarily see the despair, since death is a natural part of life, just part of the cycle. I mean I know death has the sting of separation from loved ones, but I think your real strength here is the lines, and pattern of the headstones. Good!

really nice photograph. Well, not nice, but good. good color choice with the blue, it gives the headstones a cold unnatural feeling. 8

Amazing really. Great shot. Love the lighting and the hill really adds a lot of perspective. Nice job.

I thought I would see more gravestones in this challenge but there really weren't all that many. This is my favourite of them all. You have a great capture here, every gravestone is fully in focus. I love the way that they are all not straigt but tilted in different directions. Good one!

i think that the idea for this picture was done very well the stones look like there not in focus. Good Work

This photo has great deminsion. I like how the rows of head stones leads your eye through the photo.

Nice use of light. You are one of about 200 who remembered the theme was dispair.

The coloring is effective, the angle very good. The image is very expressive and quite thought-provoking. I liked it.

A very grave scene. Tones suggest despair.

This would have worked in the rhythm challenge. I like the gradient of colors. I can't say it really fits despairing, though - death is a good deal more final than emotion, and a pretty different realm altogether. Nice picture, though.

Way to tug on the heartstrings. The mucky day helps the mood but hinders the technical value of the photograph. Win some, lose some. Good idea

Good use of colour and light to create mood. The border works at some points and distracts at others. The white in the top left corner is a bit distracting, might have cropped it if I were you.
