“Get Pushed – The Graveyard Book”

My challenge for the Get Pushed 281 Challenge was issued by Liz; the challenge which she issued for the current Get Pushed 281 was as follows:

“…my challenge to you is to take a picture for the front cover of a favourite book.”

Definitely a challenge that I enjoyed because I do love to read and doing a book cover challenged me to explore some aspects of processing on several levels and use my love of books for a subject. I choose Neil Gaiman’s ‘The Graveyard Book” as a subject and the photo was taken at the site of the burial ground of the French Reformed Church in nearby New Paltz, NY established in 1717. A little editing goes a long way sometimes and it was a very interesting challenge. [16 December 2017]

“If you dare nothing,
then when the day is over,
nothing is all you will have gained.”
~ Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book
Hi Liz @lizhammond here is my response to the challenge which you issued for this week's Get Pushed. Thanks for a great push, I would have never otherwise thought of something like this as an actual photograph. Thanks!

Hi Brett, what a super response to the challenge. I love your choice of author but I've not read the graveyard book so niw I have sone Christmas reading too. The composition and processing are great and I think you did especially well in handling the composition allowing space for the text to work. Glad you enjoyed the challenge.
