I think youve done well. The autumn leaves help a sense of sadness which comes through. This is assisted by the way the rows of tombstones stretch away into the distance and are blurred as they do so due to the shallow DOF. The walkway at upper left is slightly intrusive, but perhaps there was not much you could do about it.

An interesting subject. It's hard to make out the writing on the tombstones. I wonder if another time of day might make the letters stand out better?

I think that Linda's comment is worthy of follow-up in that the writing and carving that one can make out faintly on the grave markers might make for an interesting photographic subject matter. I like the contrast between that of the grave markers and the near golden hue of the leaf covered grass... really works to make the markers stand out strongly in the picture. I think a couple of steps to the left might have taken care of the walkway on the left.

An interesting scene that you captured here. I have a somewhat sick facination with cemeteries, especially old ones! I think you did well here with exposure and depth of field as I like the way it blurs a little as you go towards the back of the photo. I agree that if you had taken a couple of steps to the left you could have eliminated getting the road in the picture. We have to remember to always check the edges of our frame before clicking.

Thanks for the feedback and suggestions. And thank you, Dave, for showing me some more creative ways to play with this shot. :)
