"Bobby A Jackson, US Coast Guard, 1932-1974"

:pointr:Prospect Cemetery, Ogden, North Carolina:pointl:
:bulletpurple: The cemetery is 6.5 acres located where Military Cutoff Rd meets with US 17 in Ogden, North Carolina.
:bulletpurple: It's not groundskept, which is a shame because there are so many military graves and so many old graves.
:bulletpurple: The cemetery is constantly threatened by land development.

This is a very nice piece!

I like that the head stone is not centered, nor that your camera's angle is directly in front as well. It helps to alert the depth and feel of the subject, to the viewer.

The colors are very well done, in that they set a mood of seriousness and respect, yet there is also a slight flair of sadness for the fact the his gravesite is getting overgrown.
Which brings me to want to mention about the camera's focus. At first, I thought it wasn't that great since the grass had more clarity than the head stone, but then I realized that that sort of works out well, since the theme is "overgrown". What better way to emphasize the theme than that?

Very nice, and keep up the fine work!
