Haunting the Obscure
Cook cemetery, newly re-discovered in Campton, NH.
Why it's in the best of 2010 - this shot is a testament to my skill as a photographer. I'm amazed I got it. About a dozen non-photographers were milling around exploring this tiny family burial ground and so when I noticed how a break in the canopy lit up Hannah's stone, I had only a few seconds in which to compose, set exposure and shoot. Just after I did some people got into the frame and then the light changed and Hannah was no longer spotlit. When I got this image in Lightroom it was almost perfect out of the camera, but I thought a desaturated look with a slight vignette would really bring out the spooky, which it really did. I'm very proud of this shot.
