Crypt by AndrewSPGaynor Crypt by AndrewSPGaynor
200-300 year old Crypt in a church near to where I live. (updated - changed the crop so theres more grass at the bottom)

First of all, the picture looks stunning at first glance.

The crypt is very detailed (with clear corrosion traces), lightened and has a significant impact on the harmony of the composition. The colours of the foreground which is the grass and the background sky also contrast well and have a pleasing effect. Shadows and lightning are okay too.

Your subject is well centered, and there is 3/4 sky and 1/4 grass which gives an interesting effect because the dark sky seems to "overwhelm" most of the bright crypt.

You really turned an old crypt into something a beautiful, mysterious and scary : your vision is very good, impressive and original.

But there are a few disturbing details I want talk about. The cable on the left side seems "off" even if it's projected shadow on the crypt makes it hard to remove completely. There's also a bright spot in the bushes on the right that attracts the eye. Perhaps the white (plane ?) line on the left over the house's roof shouldn't be here. And lastly, but of minor importance, the grass looks "radioactive green" and the small tree has an hockward colour.


All in all, well done Pearljammin, your work is truly impressive and I personally enjoyed looking at this picture,

I like it...However from the picture there seems to be a utility wire of some sort running to the crypt.Did the deceased wish to have electrical or telephone service?

I would add that the line coming out of the crypt at the top left is distracting... it should probably be edited out.

Love the way this is lit, the fact that there are no others around gives it a surreal other worldly presence. The hues of purple in the sky are spectacular. The only thing if any i would change about this would be to remove the cable eminateing from the crypt itself, unless somebody still lives there....lol
