    "...Will you forgive me for living?"

    Taken in Romeo, Michigan at what I think is called the "Romeo Cemetery" next to the High School on 32 Mile Road.

    I was very inspired to venture here after listening a lot to Black Sabbath's "Dehumanizer" album, especially the track "The Dead."

    INFO: New technical leaps! Went to the cemetery at 10pm with my multi-thousand dollar lighting setup... a 20oz plastic Mountain Dew bottle with an LED flashlight in it... HA HA! I love it!

    This is a 6 shot HDR image with some subtle treatments of textures (rock) that I got from a family friend's house. There are obviously a lot of photoshop tricks on this one too.

      WOW. I've looked at this "live" in the cemetery quite a few times and never imagined it could be interpreted like this. Powerful, great work.

      "dance with the dead in my dreams, listen to their hallowed screams, the dead have taken my soul, temptation's lost all control"

      I love the dead before they`re cold. They`re bluing flesh for me to hold
      Cadaver eyes upon me see nothing.I love the dead before they rise
      No farewells,No goodbyes...Muha ha ha ha!
      Great work Shane!

      I never knew your rotting face
      While friends and lovers
      mourn your silly grave
      I have other uses for you, Darling

      Nice work Shane. Very spooky angle and the treatment is a treat... (excuse the pun)
      Well done!
