    A few from this evening. The sky didn't get as colorful as I'd hoped, but I'm still relatively pleased with the set. Promaster 19-35mm set at 35mm.

    Nice!

    Not that I could do better, but here are some of my thoughts:
    #1 and #2 are a bit too dark for my likings (I would maybe up the exposure a bit), however I love the composition on #2 :thumbup:
    #3 is my fav regarding composition but unfortunately its slightly a little out of focus (I would have focused on the front leafs rather than the back)
    #4 is very nice (same as on #3 - slightly a little out of focus)
    #5 is excellent!!! The detail/sharpness on the tree is amazing :thumbup:
    #6 and #7 same as for #1 & #2 (personally those would be non-keepers for me)

    Again nice work there ;)

    Maybe Tony is the ghost.

    Thanks everyone. No ghosts, but I did have a few people eying me suspiciously. I guess hanging around a cemetery at dusk with a camera is "weird" behavior. :) I don't think I'm a ghost yet, Colin . . . but then again, my wife does tend to ignore me sometimes. Hmmmmm . . .

    Thanks for the comments Nick. I actually aim to get the darker, somber look. Maybe it's something about my personality. :) I agree on the leaf focus; I would do that one differently. In the one looking though the stone arch, I was trying to accentuate the narrow view through the arch and across the cemetery. As for the last two, those were exactly what I was trying to achieve. That's one of the marvelous things about photography: we all have our personal tastes and preferences.

    Again, thanks for everyone's comments, even if the photos weren't your personal cup of tea.
