This isn't a really tombstone. I used my last name and came up with a random first name. Not long to live at all. Poor lad, if it was real. I used plaster cement to get the molds made and cut out and hand carved the name and date. Placed the hand sized statue in the front garden.

This might just end up last place since some of my friends have told me it doesn't fit the theme. It would, if it was... "Too short".

You really seem to work pretty hard for all of your pictures. I can see why this picture gets "only" average score of 5, its very well balanced, technically working but doesn't push the idea forcefully down the throat of every viewer. There doesnt seem to be much wrong in it, but something is simply missing to catch the attention at first and then meld in the fine details.
With more practice behind the lens and these kind of pictures score average of 8.

Nice. Interesting mood. I would have liked to see more detail to the left of the statue...but nice.

Beautiful work in B&W, damage that the black zone in top of the photograph is too intense, a little detail would have given more value

just a little dark in the shade on my monitor. Nice and simple, but a tad lacking in ribbon juice
