Snow covers the gravestones in the churchyard of St Nicolas’ Church in Shoreham-by-sea, West Sussex, England. This old Celtic cross stands slightly awry and is some 2 meters or more high and has not escaped a dusting of snow. Since its revival in the 1850s, the Celtic cross has been used extensively as grave markers and can be found in graveyards all over the United Kingdom.

questa a mio parere è tra le tue più belle per la serenità che traspare da questa bella composizione.
Molto belli i colori che si avvalgono di sfumature molto delicate alle quali contribuiscono una ripresa tecnicamente perfetta nella quale lumonosità e nitidezza prevalgono.
Anche il contrasto è perfetto
Ciao e buon fine settimana

as I see you´ve changed completely the climate.But even in this cold and snowy environment you were able to emphasize this soft light and utilize it to create unique mood.Old cemeteries can be very photogenic and I can only say your vision of this scene appeals to me much.
Have a nice weekend

you captured this winter atmosphere very well. The colors are very soft. The composition with the old cross is harmoniously.

una composizione ben fatta, con un piacevole taglio quadrato. Mi piace il colore degli alberi che è simile a quello delle lapidi, facendo una similitudine tra la pietra inerme e la vegetazione viva.

An interesting change from your usual. The tilt on the central gravestone makes this picture for me - otherwise it might have been too central. The line of bare trees frame the graveyard very well. I really like the blanket of snow. A gentle image that I will remember.
Kind Regards, Ann

Incredible peace and calm in this winter image. Beautiful tonal quality, I really like the details on the gravestones.
Have a nice Sunday evening!

Does not fit to your portfolio, imho. DOF is just too deep. :-(
