My family and I went to a war cemetary and I took a few pictures. I wanted to get another angle so I went to the fence and started up a hill. I was a bit freaked out and was thinking about all the people buried in the ground and what they were like when all the sudden the sprinkler system come on and went all the way up from my ankles to my head. Thank goodness I was in front of it or it would have soaked my camera. But you talk about being scared. I jumped and ran so fast. Mike(husband) of course was behind me watching the whole thing and laughed so hard he hurt his stomach.
It was a cold trip home. hehehehee....

Excellent composition. This was taken in Arlington National Cemetary. This is a Landmark. It shouldn't qualify for this Challenge.

Nicely conceived and sharp, but the angle doesn't make for the most interesting composition.

I really like this photo - it's very moody and contrasty (just the way I like 'em). But I hope it doesn't get DQd for being considered a landmark. Good luck!
