Those graves are just like the ones in Spain. I can see where the influence came from.
BTW, Photo 1 is great Jim Was it hand-held without flash?

It was 1/50th of a second at f4 and ISO 3200, focal length was 35mm, 1/50th is about fine for a focal length of 35mm as it is comfortably better than the old 1/(focal length) as a minimum shutter speed rule in this case.ΔxΔp ≥ ħ/2

All I can say is (even though you are at ISO 3200) you must have hands as solid as a tree.
I get nervous at 1/60
I am hoping you are going to tell me you were propped up against a wall and pressed the button when every last bit of your breath was expelled"It's not the years in your life, it's the life in your years"

To take a picture handheld without it turning out blurry there is an old rule that says set the shutter speed to a number equal to or greater than the focal length of the lens you are using.
Lens focal lengths go from say 10mm (wideangle) to 800mm (long telephoto) and the minimum shutter speed fraction of a second needed to get an sharp photo is 1 divided by the focal length of the lens (which is usually written on the front of the lens) this is the slowest you should go, so for example for a 35mm lens, 1/35th of a second would be the slowest shutter speed you would want to use 1/50th of a second would be much better.
The problem in photography is that there are three variables Aperture, Shutter Speed, and Sensitivity, sensitivity is also known as ISO or ASA, this is the sensitivity of either film or a sensor.
The problem is that all three are linked and you can only get some shots right at the limits of all three, to get that shot that Mike commented on I had to push the sensor sensitivity to the maximum possible on my camera, so that at the widest aperture of my lens I could get a shutter speed quick enough to let me handhold the camera and get a shot that was not blurry
All that can be said quickly and in short form as 1/50th of a second at f4 on ISO 3200
The shutter speed rule was explained in the rest of it however my punctuation could have been better, I've been working a lot of late nights recentlyΔxΔp ≥ ħ/2

I do have a natural instinctive pause to my breathing when I am about to release the shutter, always had that ever since I started in PhotographyΔxΔp ≥ ħ/2

Re: 10 Things I hate about the Philippines
And before departing... you know what's most funny of all? Is that everyone in this list would already be targeted for taking down by the local MILF members who wear t-shirts with "Jesus" written in bold letters across their chest and by the neighbors as "persona non grata" for saying these truths instead of saying lies with a smile on their face.
And remember... always smile while in the philippines.
