Next time you're in Cade's Cove, check the markers behind the church on the loop road - infant deaths appear to have been an annual rite of misery and suffering for some families.

This one in particular caught my attention since it appears to be using the same grave for two different infants ... nearly eight years apart.

Sad.
Given the subject I wonder about a less warm look. Or maybe an aged/toned BW conversion.

The framing isn't working for me. You have the stone dead center in the frame, and while I'm not opposed to that, if you are going to center something like a grave stone, square up to it, or line up to the plane of the stone.

You also have the other two stones in the upper corners pulling attention away from your subject. If they weren't as bright as the main stone, it wouldn't be as distracting.

The shadow on the left of the stone is so dark that there is nothing there but a slash of black.

What I'd think of doing is to crop the left of the frame almost coming to the edge of the stone, and at the bottom, taking out the OOF foreground. That way, you have the stone falling into the center of the frame, and you remove the distracting foreground which isn't contributing to the story of the stone. It also removes one of the background stones, and the shadow becomes less prominent.
