[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had to get to an elevated position to show the lines and symmetry of the tombstones at Arlington Cemetery. This year's autumn is not as vivid and colorful as last year. It must be because of the drought. This was taken last year. The cemetery looks best I think during autumn - the crosses and tombstones contrast well with the colors of autumn. I lost the exif data during pp work which included resizing, exposure adjustment, and color tweakings. I wish you all a good Sunday.

Excellent! Perfectly done

I simply love the mood and symmetry you have showed in this beautiful work, Danilo!

Great colors and perfect sharpness throughout the shot.
The autumn colors are so eye-catching and the green field gives nice contrast to them.
The light is very nicely managed.
Well done!


Great photo Danilo ..it really stands out from the thumbnails, with those symmetrically lined up headstones dotting the landscape. The great fall colors are the other stand-out feature here. Very well done.
Hope all is well

Hi Danilo,

The high POV works well here and the fall colors are beautiful. I agree with you about the colors this fall, a bit disappointing. There's very nice depth to this and the symmetry is well seen. Whenever I see photos from Arlington I can't help but think of the song "Where Have All The Flowers Gone." Sad.

Have a nice evening.

Hi Danilo

I fly to Manila on Xmas day & back to Seoul on January 9th. Looking fwd to an escape from the ice & snow at El Nido. I recognized Arlington before I opened the thumbnail. Good Fall colors & a pleasant diffused light. Tfs!

Bonjour Danielo
L'angle de prise de vue permet de distinguer chaque tombe entre les arbres et de jouer sur l'alignement parfait avec celles de droite.Les couleurs d'automne en font un lieu si paisible et si charmant que c'est un bel hommage rendu à ceux qui sont morts au champ d'honneur.
Bonne soirée

Very good colors and light balanced
