Mourning in Romania

Funeral ceremony, Romania

"The composition and perspective work together very well here. I like how the delicate flowers so neatly placed on the tombstones mirror the crowd of people, the specks of color echoed in the clothes of the mourners. It feels almost as if we are witnessing a metamorphosis of sorts." —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
