A cemetery shot in IR. Love cemeteries.

Levels on separate channels. Sharpen. Save for web.

I know. Boring, lifeless. Such is silence often. Oh, and the spot in the upper right is a bit of lens flare.

Another line from "Sunday Morning"
Seems I'm fixated for now, though Stevens' poems are full of amazing visuals perfectly suited to title photography.

A bit under rated imho. Despite my suggestions below I gave this an 8 for the magnificently eerie haunting feel you created with the IR. The Stevens poem is awesome and now I'm inspired to read some of his other works. Thanks!

Just a bit blurry, but I really like the interesting, beautiful colors and the strong bright contrast.

A deathly silence here. Very nicely done and processed. I like that little sliver of moon in the sky. The tones are nice and darkly ominous. My favorite in the challenge. 9

I really like the toning and colors in this image, very nice! The tops of the trees look a bit strange though.

Good silence but too much is oof for me. My eye is struggling to find a place to rest & I wonder if it would have helped to have the near obelisk or the far cross sharp. Intriguing title.
