I am a 14 year old photographer with an A* in GCSE photography. I took this using a Canon EOS 1000D at Whitby. I would appreciate any comments on my photographs.

Resting place at St Leonards church, Ragnall in Nottinghamshire.

Not many to be found like this, fewer still standing up. Our local cemetery is badly vandalized in many areas.

A grave-maker... The houses that he makes last till doomsday

Seen today in the churchyard of a disused Baptist Chapel in Newport, South Wales.

These gravestones are in the graveyard at the church in Heptonstall in Yorkshire.Heptonstall's original church was dedicated to St Thomas a Becket. It was founded c.1260, and was altered and added to over several centuries. The church was damaged by a gale in 1847, and is now only a shell. A new church, St Thomas the Apostle, was built in the same churchyard.

St. Laurentii Church / Föhr, North Frisian Islands, North Sea

 

The Talking Gravestones (German: Sprechende Grabsteine) of Föhr, also known as the Story-telling Gravestones (Erzählende Grabsteine), are historic artifacts on the German island of Föhr. They can be found in the cemeteries of St. Laurentii church in Süderende (54.7163°N 8.4352°E), St. Johannes church in Nieblum (54.6934°N 8.4911°E), and St. Nikolai church in Boldixum (54.6958°N 8.5504°E), which is now a district of Wyk auf Föhr. Similar objects are known from the neighbour island of Amrum.[1] All such headstones made until 1870 are designated cultural heritage monuments.[2] Their inscriptions tell the biographies of the deceased including their private and professional lives, extraordinary events, and honorary appointments.
