This was at the funeral of my ex-brother-in-law who was a 20 year vet and 10 year FEMA emergency worker - spent his life serving others. I was just part of the crowd at the grave and took this handheld shot just prior to the service starting. Glad it made people think.

I think maybe if you wouldve taken the shot from a different angle, maybe closer to the coffin to focus more on the coffin itself and the man starring down at it wouldve worked better

GREAT idea, but Little emotion shown by the people. I want to see some watery eyes or something.

Nice photo - says alot even without a title. The greens are so green its a little overpowering, but a really moving image. Good luck in the challenge.

If anything is sacred this is... a very humble and sacred moment!
