I had a little time this afternoon to take a quick drive through Mt. Auburn Cemetery. Still a little too early for flowers/flowering trees. But I kind of liked these shots.

#3 is powerful. Fills one with emotion.

The second image is splendid! Would be perfect for an aging treatment!

Thanks Rich, Kelly, Cindi, Blackdog's and Jean-Luc for your kind comments.

Rich, #3 spoke to me too. In addition to the historic element of Mt. Auburn Cemetery (e.g. it's the burial site for historic figures such as Oliver Wendell Holmes, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Mary Baker Eddy) it remains an active cemetery with burials continuing today. #3 really speaks to the more recent memories of individuals rather than the tourist attraction part of the cemetery.

Jean-Luc, you're probably right. Gothic architecture really demands some grunge for added mood. I tried an aged version.

Hi Tom,

I was actually in Forest Hils Cemetary at the same time that you were in Mt Auburn, taking my first lensbabies shots. These are my first tries. I'm looking forward to experimenting more with the lens.

Tom and Robert.....

If I may ask. What aperture are you using for these nice shots? thanks for any advice.

Hi all,

I think that it was the 3.4 - the first lend ring that came with the lens as shipped. It is a Lensbabies original. I'm not near my gear now so I can't check. That was my first time out and I have yet to try other apertures.

Dom,

I was using the f/2.8 disk with a Lensbaby2.0 on a Canon 1Ds Mark III.

Roberta,

Great minds think alike! I like the angel shot. Is that out of the camera or did you add a blue and/or cooling filter in PS to get that effect?

I actually started shooting with my white balance on "incandescent" from some indoor shots previously, and the photos came out with an eerie blue cast. Being in a cemetary, I decided to continue shooting with it like that - sometimes serendipity is the correct way to go. Here are a few more shots.

I use a Nikon D40x.
