Today I took photographs in a few VERY old cemeteries. I'm talking Revolutionary War era cemeteries. In some of the photos, you can faintly make out names. The stones are old and the majority of the deceased parties information dates back to the 1700s.

I'm doing some post processing to make them look a bit, shall we say, creepy...

Will having the writing on the stones earn me some rejections?

Any info would be helpful!

Names and symbols, edit them out. Religious symbols are OK.

Thank you Wisconsinart,. If that's the case I think I'll remove all of the writing so it doesn't look awkward. :)

You still need to remove all names from the grave stones, even if the graves are very old.

First of all, it was a wolf, a big one, a beast, big like an elephant, huge. They ambushed on my way to capital city, no internet here and I upload images "by hand", a 300 miles road for every batch. I killed 20 of them but the last one bite me because my horse was distracted by a facebook message and stopped for reply. :)

editing cemetaries is a lot of work, you have to remove ALL names and other texts. I feel, sometimes it harms the total image.

You´re right, Studioprotossabia, I´ve preferred they changed the status of my image to editorial instead of faking the reality as much as that.

Looks like it depends on the age of the stones. With mine, I don't think it looks that unusual since a lot of the writing has worn off over the years. The back side of the stones are blank as well.
