Ed, I like them, I wouldn't say there that spooky but nice. I like the 1st best.
The 2nd IMO could use a little more contrast.

I know what you mean, that was the really annoying problem with this image!
Thanks

I agree with anel-slo. Can't really seem to get the feel of the picture when you have to scroll up and down to see the whole picture.

Not really spooky, but fantastic shots.

Picture 1 sure has that spooky feel. 2 feels a lot warmer even with the flaws. The 3rd one is just bleh for me

I personally like the 1st photo the best... The 2nd one is a different crop or different angle, and for some reason I don't like it as much. I like the 3rd photo as well because of the angles, but your first shot is definitely my favourite out of this set :)

The composition, I think, is what is the best of it - the headstones in the foreground with a path leading to the door. It works for me!

I like #3. The angles of the tombstones add some interesting lines to the image.
