Count the Gravestones… “Arlington Endless Graves”

This was taken on a sunny, warm day in fall, at Arlington National Cemetery.  I just find that place amazing… scary and overwhelmingly solemn, but amazing.

I used 3 photographs and created an HDR from them, to get the nice glow in the final photo.

While I liked the image, I wanted to further warm up the colors and to add some textures that might create additional depth.  I used textures with various designs, all with warm colors.  I especially like the vine texture which adds some interesting lines across the gravestones and the lawn.  Some other wall textures gave a deep, old look to the image.

Feel free to look at this and other photos at my website, http://www.kelleybard.com.
