    These are headstones in an old Japanese missionary cemetary at the northend of the big island of Hawaii.Situated on a high, forlorn bluff,overlooking the endless Pacific ocean,this small plot gives silent testimony to an old call to duty.

    Well done. I don't like overprocessing so perhaps I would have attempted a simpler B&W. However the colour emphasizes the passing of time.

    Putting stones in the forefront uses the potential for deep space of the 12mm v. well.
