If you could just get the moonlight to do that here, it would be the ultimate. But for now, I will just send you a "like".
Excellent shot, Kevin.

I see you have been busier than me with your camera, this one is just sublime, what does "blended" mean, is it a sort of HDR process?

Wow! And that on Halloween! ;-)

Liam, Kris, Bob, and Hans,
I'm very happy you like this one ... best regards to you all!!
Bob, Yes, something similar to HDR process but using all JPEG files. My understanding of "real HDR" is that RAW files are required as the source of data. Therefore I label mine as "blended photos" since my camera only shoots JPEG. This is 9 exposures at 1.0 EV steps (and of course tone mapped to suit my taste). It comes with a price when using this many exposures ... there is quite a lot of purple fringing in the leaves (from a light breeze) that I can't avoid. I typically blend three exposures at 2.0 EV steps but was trying a few things different last week.
Best regards, gentlemen ~

I'm having a hard time liking your new page full of gorgeous shots when I got absolutely nothing myself this week. Or... maybe that's a good thing, NOT taking shots I'm going to ditch anyway...? Nah... Just jealous! Love the sunrays on this one ;)

Hey, I've been here... even did rubbings of these gravestones way back when.... Good thing it wasn't as spooky as this when I was there, I'm chicken. Like from me!
Happy Haunted Wishes (one day late), GG
P.S. I don't know what type of camera you are using but I do know I have the same problem with purple on mine. It's a Kodak. It's a rare photo that I don't have to correct the purple on, without blending or anything. I've also seen the same purple on others with Kodaks.

Fantastic shot, full of atmosphere. Wouldn't fancing being there after the sun goes down! Nik

KC, I'm sure one of those big nasties is lurking in there somewhere!
Jeroen, I'm with you on the idea of not taking photos that we know will be flawed. Isn't it nice that we've learned to recognize (most of) those? I just couldn't resist having a little fun with this one.
GordJess, As it happens, I'm using a Kodak also at the moment (Z1012IS). I hear what you're saying but personally I wouldn't say this is a “Kodak problem”. I think most all cameras are subject to exhibit this fringing (or chromatic aberration) with such high contrast components like dark leaves against a bright sky. Like Jeroen was saying ... just one more thing we have to recognize before closing the shutter! :)
Nik, Thank you very much. There is evidence of this cemetery being in use as early as 1711. There were some amazingly unique grave sites here ... one of the coolest-creepiest places I've been.

Way too spooky, Kevin--luckily it is about noon with lots of sunlight otherwise I wouldn't feel comfortable at all looking at this. I'll give it a qualified LIKE......From now on, try to keep them all more G rated ! Good job my friend, my best from Michigan to you

Joel, Thank you very much! I was definitely halloween-inspired to make this one. We woke up to a hard frost in the North Carolina foothills this morning - hope all is good up your way.
filippo, thank you for the like, very much appreciated!
Renatorius, Thank you - I'm glad you caught the feeling!
Erik, Wow, full medals from you? Excellent! This one gets a complete make-over the next rainy Saturday we have. You're right - there is some kind of magic happening here ... similar to the magic that occurred in your "old man in the clouds" shot! :)
