I am up late.... or early..... and not able to sleep so I decided to get the last of my photos edited of the cemetery shots.
I played around a little more in PSE with the lighting and levels & I cropped the photos a little more than I usually do to see what it would give me.
I am going to have to do some research and find out if there is a program that allows you to crop a photo without losing resolution/pixels. That would be nice.
Yes, I even lay on the ground in the cemetery to get a photo.
Im always looking for old grave markers that show infant/baby deaths. When I see these type of graves, I think about how times were different "back in the day" and babies died so often in childbirth, childhood, and so very young. I think about how medicine, science, technology, etc were no where as advanced as they are today and when I look at history and the causes of these deaths, I think of how "simple" some of the causes were and how they would be recognized and death prevented today.
Im trying so hard to get down my black & white conversion to something Im satisfied with. This one I cropped to the size you see here to focus on the face of the statue. I can not decide if I went too far or now. Im still not satisfied with the black and white conversion. Practice makes perfect, right. More practicing needed!
Laying down again to get this shot....
