The title is the Catholic shibboleth in latin "In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit." Wonderful shot. Excellent work on the sky.

Nicely done and now that I think about it ... it does look a bit like a good show I watch ...'Six Feet Under' from the first Season. Anyway, guess it pays to scope out a location and come back when required. OK... I'm off to my Douge and Burn training ;-)

Excellent work.

Strong and rich in that low key manner which invites a second look. Congratulations on your red.

Outstanding job! This was actually my pick for the blue, but lots of tough competition! Congrats!

Nice job, love the drama working here with light, dark, shadows, green grass and the organization of graves. Chaos in life, order in death..brr..anyway, I think I've seen enough graves for a long time.

Lovely simplicity of composition, understated photo. I'm glad that Blue and your Red in this challenge were both vertical (portrait) layout, as a quiet way to emphasize the true realm of the cemetary, the relationship between earth and heaven, terrestrial and celestial. Cemetaries are more than resting places for human remains. They are thresholds, inviting us to look beyond this brief transitory existence into the mystery, wonder and glory of the life beyond. Congrats on your 2nd place photo, pointing us beyound the grass, trees, and even beyound the clouds.

My favorite photo so far. Awesome sky for a picture like this. The barren trees add so much to your picture too. I just love national cemeteries with their uniformity. They look so noble and gallant, don't they? 10

I love this photo!

This is a very strong image, but certain aspects of it make me uneasy. primary among those are the almost perfectly centered and symmetrical trees, which seem too pat, and a sense of over-smoothing to the image. I can't see offhand any approach to it that woulkd change the compositional aspect favorably, at least not from anywhere close to where you shot from, though. Possibly if you'd moved up one or two ranks in the headstones, the closer tree would be a more dominat element, rather than existing on essentially the same plane as the other two.

Whatever, very skillfuly done and a very strong entry.

This photo makes me go WOW!! Great sky for starters. This photo seems surreal to me! I love your composition, everything seems to be in its place and the colors are perfect. Nice job.

Great mood and nice angle. The tree and sky makes this shot stand out from the others. Congratulations. One of my favorites for the challenge.

This looks like it could be a picture from heidi, I guess I'll have to wait and see. If this is her picture, I love the skies in your pictures. If it's not, I love the sky in this picture. Very well shot, good perspecive, leading lines keep your eyes on the photo. This should ribbon.

I am making two passes on this Challenge. I will vote on your photo then return later(before voting is over) to comment on what I like and dislike about your shot. You can take the comments however you wish and I will try not to be mean. Just don't take it the wrong way.

I like this. The border works real good for this photo. Good POV and everything is in good focus. Nice stormy clouds to go with it all. 10

So close to being a 10....yup, viewed it on a different brighter monitor and it became a 10 - congrats

Very great composition and depth of field. Also, great clouds! I only would like to see the mid-tones a little lighter... the picture just looks a little too dark... but you may have done that intentionally for effect =) Otherwise, great photograph!

Great shot!! Isn't there supposed to be an "et" between "filii" and "spiritu"? 9, possibly 10 . . . I'll review again after I'm done voting.
