It's conceptual work, for me.. because autumn is time of sorrow. lighting and composition are the best!

i like the open slit in the trees revealing the sky. wonderful composition. it looks as though you've darkened the edges a bit. great effect. it deffinately directs your attention to the center.

fantastic shot and yes the black border and presumably purposeful vignetting give the impression that the viewer is looking into another world as it were

i'm not so keen on the orange flow covering the trees at the top but otherwise fantastic :)

This is gorgeous; the colors are so rich and warm, and yet seem somehow melancholy at the same time.

I was just gonna say, before I read the description, that it doesn't give me a gloomy feeling. It could also be that it's a beautiful place to take photos, but I'm gonna say it's also how you handled the lighting. I'd love to wander around there. I love how detailed the headstones are.
