Newbie???? I think not...
I like it, but I would hane prefered to crop away the top and just have the cross fill up the frame. Maybe a fill in flash could have been used to reduce the contrast of the shadow area and show more detail of the sword.
What do you think?

everybody is newbie, only on different things.
subject of your photo is a religious object
so I guess most people won't dare to pass comments
except maybe good comments
because very very sensitive topic.

8,7 & 6.
8 for the cross, 6 for the tombstone & 5 for the tree. * cos interesting subject, 7 cos quite queer and 6 don't quite realy know about the tree (composition).

saturation done for the cross picture?
tombstone looks under exposed and angle is rather static. Would advise to look out for more interesting angle, perhaps show the whole cemetary from a low angle etc.
trees look like a snap shot.
anyway, keep shooting and always get out of your comfort zone! i think most of us are always sticking to the same old angles cos we're too lazy (or pot belly too big!) to get close to ground/climb high high...

Me newbie commenting, someone said top should be cut away..i agree because that is the first thing it comes to my mind seeing the picture, and I think its a good subject because it makes me wondering why sword and cross together, with a little print at the bottom of each sides, religious and mysterious.
I also stop at 61 because I also like to take macro at special emblems.
56 tombstone color shade looks just nice for that moment.
The rest kind of wash out, and probably composition needs to be improved?
Personally I think subject really matters too.
Thanks for reading.

How about a graduated neutral density filter?

Forgive my ignorance, but won't that result in 1/2 the subject being under exposed?coz in this case, the subject protrudes into the sky...

I guess if you want the cross properly exposed, then probably have to do double exposure and then combine with PS.
