I think the trees are too obstructive, the composition shows too many things I end up wondering what attracted you to the scene: the tombs, the church, the trees. To my eyes the picture suffers from the above.

I like the colors, though. Thank you for posting.

Well, we all react differently to a scene, but I see the following in the posted photo:  fallen leaves, bare limbed trees, an old weather beaten church, and long forgotten headstones, all bathed in the soft sunshine of  a cold, late afternoon Autumn day.  This combination suggests death to me, as something inevitable but not to be feared, and that's why I took the shot.

Thanks for commenting.
