Taken near sunset, at Florence SC National Cemetery. Almost gave up on a shot of interest, and then found this veteran's marker being highlighted by the setting rays of the sun. Adusted brightness level and contrast just a hair.

Very nice, I like how the light breaks through onto your subject.

Oh gosh! I have a cemetery like that across from my street. When I say 'like that' I mean a veteran's cemetery where the toumbstones have that same look. My 'favorite' toumbstone was the one of the Medal of Honor winner. He died really young. Unfortunately recently the gold has been coming off... Anyway, I like the photo - maybe lighting is a bit harsh and angle that you took the shot from could be better, but I like the elements in the shot and the way that the main toumstone is defined and emphasized.
