Forgotten People

Collapsed gravestone cross in Highgate Cemetery.

 

Experimental photo, I'm trying to make the cross stand out and give it that quiet/ancient look.

 

See the original here. You can see that the sunlight was very harsh, so the main steps were to underexpose the photo, make the darks darker (in the Lightroom curve); selectively, desaturated the leaves around the cross and in Photoshop I applied a gradient in the top right corner. Also lots of cloning to hide the adjacent grave, to make this appear more isolated.
