This is nearly out of the camera, which I am really striving for lately. Slight crop, a few flecks and blemishes removed, 5% sat boost, resized, USM.

I didn't even plan on going here today; we stumbled upon this cemetery driving around looking for a place to eat and were drawn to its history, beauty and peace. I saw headstones dating back to the 1700's; very rare for California. I intend on going back here many times.

Beautifully rendered, but with a hint of srtefacts along the tree branches, presumably from slightly obverdone USM or perhaps a selection ambiguity. The POV, from very low, is quite good, and the raking light is perfect for texture and detail; but, ultimately, the picture doesn't have much emotional weight for me, so it doesn't make my top tier here. Still a strong entry.

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.

Good work. Nice beautiful colors and perfect composition.

Well composed. Nice colors and levels. This is among only a few photos that would make me want to be there. Peaceful. Respectful. Very nicely done.
