Bachelor’s Grove


This photo was taken at Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery, which is supposedly one of the most haunted places in the country. Supposedly Al Capone’s gang dumped bodies in the nearby pond. I was there with my nephew, and some creepy, old guy who looked like he was the caretaker asked us if we’d seen any ghosts. I felt like we were in the middle of an episode of Scooby Doo. Maybe he was a ghost.

This is a 3-exposure HDR image (+/- 2EV) blended and tone mapped in Photomatix Pro.

After blending I made basic adjustments with the Camera Raw filter, adjusted highlights and midtones with the burn and dodge tools and added a black and white adjustment layer in Photoshop.
