Taken at Highgate Cemetery. It is an amazing place to visit ... mournful and peaceful and so fascinating. I spent 4 hours there just wandering. This statue impressed me ... it was so different from the Victorian angels that adorned much of the cemetery.

There has been no photo-manipulation on this image... it is pretty much as shot ... just lighting adjustments (day for night), black and white management and sharpening.

The angle you chose for the shot gives so much feeling to the image.

I worked on the composition when I took it ... the one thing I remember was trying not to step on any graves (which seems disrespectful) to get it. It is hard at Highgate as they graves are almost piled one on top of the other! This area was pretty open which allowed me to get this.

Thank you ... wasn't sure about the edit ... wanted it in B&W but also wanted a bit of colour to soften the darkness.
