[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I spent the last 4 days running around Massachusetts and Rhode Island with TLs Linda aka sheleesmom!
I had a wonderful time that went by too fast... I leaned so many things over the last 4 days. I just hope I can do some justice to some of the many, many photos I took during our outings.... ???? ????

COURAGE is the name.... my reason behind this is in my photography... I am looking for courage.... courage to get out and not care what others around are thinking about me snapping away be it in a graveyard (which I have the most respect for) or on the street.... courage to be who I want to be and not what other EXPECT me to be =)

edit was done in corel paint.. a new edit program for me.. I noticed the data is gone so I will have to try to go find it!!!!!

I made a small crop to bring my focus on the 3 FG markers.... added brightness and adjusted the clarity

as for the town listed.. its a guess as we got lost many times over the last few days.. even with OnStar..

below taken from wikipedia.. so you know.. a grain of salt and all........

Courage, also known as bravery, will, intrepidity, and loyalty, is the ability to confront fear, pain, risk/danger, uncertainty, or intimidation. "Physical courage" is courage in the face of physical pain, hardship, or threat of death, while "moral courage" is the ability to act rightly in the face of popular opposition, shame, scandal, or discouragement

I love it!! It's a bit spooky! It was a gloomy day for us! Your details in this are amazing! You processed it perfectly! Somewhere in the program is a box that you check, save EXIF data?? I'll try and find it for you if I get a chance today! Thanks again Tricia! I had a great time!

I know how you feel - I think it should be called the Photographer's Prayer. Often the best shots are those where the person behind the lens has shown courage. Stepping into the fray, stepping into the street, grabbing the shot that nobody else would dare to take. I want to do a model shoot on a crowded pedestrian crossing - I'm still working up the courage for that one!!

A nice, simple and poignant capture, levels are spot on. I wonder how this would've looked with a longer focal length/wider aperture so that the leading gravestones were sharp and the background soft?
