    St Roch Cemetery: Shrine:  The chapel, completed in 1876, resembles a small chancel of a Gothic church. On the altar is a statue of St. Roch and his dog. The shrine is where grateful petitioners have left crutches and other items testifying to the miraculous cures worked through the intercessions of St. Roch.

    Looking at this again, I cannot believe how much depth the room looks to have in the image... Really a great shot!

    thanks, that room is so overwhelming. i could spend hours in there with all the little details. still trying to find the best way to capture it.

    I want to go there as well. Is it a dangerous place to walk around in?

    Its def a place i want to go back to when i have my real tripod. and maybe a macro lens? maybe a fisheye.. that small "shrine" room is TINY.. maybe 6ft by 6ft. but there is a ton to shoot in that small space. i think its a fairly safe place. i think like anywhere else you want to be aware of your surroundings.. and its always safer to go with someone.. safety in numbers.. but it seemed safe to me. as for the photo and the "depth" i did do a little editing to add that look of depth. i used photoshop to burn/dodge some areas.. darker areas look further away.. bascially i made an irregular vignette to push the back wall back some... if that makes sense

    Yes, I agree it is full of interesting things. I love the history you posted, makes it less creepy ;). I understand what you did with the burn and dodge... You displayed it excellent!! Very impressive! I love it!

    one more thing about the burn and dodge. in photoshop there is a burn and dodge tool.. those are "Destructive" meaning once you use it on an image, there is no way to revert back. a better way to do it is how this guy suggests: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RmWsyizVKJw instead of using an "overlay" layer i use a "softlight" layer but other than that i use his method.
