Great depth of focus leads us to your intended subject.

Very interesting idea. One of the best graveyard images I have seen. This perpective really shows the differences between the tombstones and provides an incredible design. I don't think the tree is necessary, though but I'm not sure. Great shot. -T

NIce subject. I feel it would have been much stronger if you had left out the tree and brought your focal point more to the front. The blurred tombstone right in front is distracting. 6

Creative use of the concept. I think it would have beeb stronger had you moved to the right 1 step or two and let the headstones run left to right (and also loose the tree branch).

Depth of field needs to be sharper.

Really interesting perspective here. I didn't know what these were right at first, and it's ironic how the markers turn into post-like objects as they get farther away--and puzzlingly--more in focus.

try using a 4.0 for the aperture settings. not a bad shot..I just don't like the blurred forground even if it is intentional. Great leading lines.

It bothers me a bit that the front stone isn't in focus, a larger dof perhaps?

I love the feel of this shot. IMO though, i would like to see more of the tree on the right in the picture or cropped out competely. 8

Not enough DOF and the branch on the right is very annoying, otherwise this would be an image with high impact.
