Nice shot!

The problem is the lack of DOF here Richard!


Best regards

Vicksburg National Cemetery #2 I don't do a lot of selective color but when I saw this scene it was the first thing that came to my mind. When I saw the small flag next to the marker it seemed to scream greyscale for the markers with the color of the flag remaining. The thought that came to my mind was that regardless of the atrocity of brother fighting brother the nation persevered. I used a layer mask to let the color through after changing the background layer to black and white. Please let me know if there is a better way. Also, check out my second cemetery picture with the color in the trees and row after row of grave markers. Thanks for your time.
