For those interested in how I did this...I selected the cross, cut it into a new layer and used the mr.contrast filter (found on flamingpear.com) to get the contrast. I used levels on the sky layer to bring out the contrast. neatimage was not used. Thanks for all the kind comments.
Green ribbon woot!

Im a huge fan of cemetary shots. Not because they are morbid, but because they are usually sat somewhere pretty.

Love this.

This was my choice for the blue ribbon. So close, but you should still be very proud.

Hey Wendy! you came so close again to another ribbon, but don't worry...ribbons are overrated...this image was definatly one of the winners I thought. I was givng you a ten, and then changed it to a seven because Im such a picky voter and didnt see enough texture in the tombstone. In single tombstone photos, I like to see the detail of the stone, but I now realized you went for that High Contrast look and you did the right thing here...this photo rocks! Congrats

Very artistic the stone looks almost airbrushed on to a sunset.

Sumptuous and lovely. I really appreciate the skillful hint of "place" that appends to the ethnic carvings.

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.

Looks like something out of a movie great pic 8

Great detail in the texture and a slightly surreal sense of separation between stone and sky behind. I like it a lot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2005 01:51:57 PM
Wonderful shot/color. Wish I could see more of the area. Good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2005 01:29:31 PM
I absolutely love this - but the dodge/burn is a bit distracting. Maybe turn down the brush size in the future. Beautiful though 8

nice photo...good colored sky, but your stone suffered in sharpness and detail. Did you use neatimage? still gets a 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2005 01:17:19 AM
Very beautiful colors! I really like how soft the lighting is on the cross. Great photo!

Nice abstract. Dramatic sky. Not so much a cemetery as a sculpture.
