This is a fall scene from the National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia. It is an American military cemetery established during the American Civil War on the grounds of Arlington House, formerly the estate of the family of Robert E. Lee's wife Mary Anna Custis Lee, a descendant of Martha Washington. The cemetery is situated directly across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., near to the location of the Pentagon, and is the gravesite of John F. and Jacqueline B. Kennedy. The Kennedy's gravesite consists of Massachusetts granite quarried over 150 years ago and personally selected by immediate family.

Hello Danilo,
Superb composition with all these crosses under the trees in all the frame. Very well seen, it makes a very impressive effect. Excelent sharpness and colours, and an amazing vivid constrast between the yellow leaf, the white of the graves and the strong dark tones of the trees. Excelent photo.
Congrats, mb

your contrasting colors of green and autumn are great on this presentation. details are crisp and vivid. good formation on the tombstones. it doesn't look ordinary like the rest i've seen before. this one has a more random feel to it.
well done as always.

Hi Danilo,
A great image. The white headstons against the Fall colours are simply stunning. I could not think of anything else that would improve this shot.

beautiful colours of autumn on top, soothing green and a nice repetition of whites at the bottom.

Hi Danilo
A splendid place for the war heoroes to rest in peace! specially at this time of year with the Fall colors changing on a daily basis it is a pleasure to wonder around and feel happy you can experience all this beautuy

A striking picture - the colours of the tree trunks, leaves and gravestones all contrasting so vividly with each other, and the POV you've used naturally leading the viewers eye along the lines of the gravestones.
Thanks for sharing

Hi Danilo!
Geometrical repetition of white tomb stones are simply astonishing, above all if you notice their contrast with trees multicolor cap.
A very well balanced image, full ot atmosphere and mood.
Ciao, Antonella

Ciao Danilo, great autumnal view of sad place with fantastic perspective and splendid warm colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

hello Danilo,
this is a powerful anf poignant image.The beuaty of the trees and the simple contrast of the white headstones against the black of the tree trunks is very effecting.

A thought provoking comparison picture; dead leaves and dead serviceman however there will be a resurrection.
In the Uk on Remembrance Day Service at the Royal Albert Hall they release millions of poppies from the roof as everyone observes two minutes silence. As each leaf falls from these trees each one symbolizes a life.
We need to remember the sacrifice paid to give us freedom.
Great Picture.
Regards David

Helo Danilo
A very strong picture with lot of natural and unnatural happends, and bolt things go to the end of his days.
Very good work and i hope you have understud what i will say (bad english)

Impresionante Danilo.
Por lo demás excelente encuadre y genial contraste.
Saludos, JL.

hi Danilo
beautiful shot with great composition.
thanks for your nice comment on
"flames of sunrise".
best regards.

very timely image for this time of the year when we rememeber departed ones and the nature dresses up to pay homage to them
beautiful shot

Hi Danilo,

Very impressive composition. No doubt the fall-season is the best to make a picture here - the carpet of fallen leaves and the beautiful warm colours provide a good contrast with the stark white crosses.


beautiful subject...hehe
the colors are fantastic and the whites striking

Hi Danilo..great shot..wonderful light and dark tones...excellent.


Hola Danilo.

Excellent picture, nice composition and colors.
