The brilliant white mausoleum and adjoining graves contrasted strongly with the brilliant blue sky.

Nice photo. I love that blue sky. The contrast of the white against the blue is intriguing.

The subject you have chosen has a great potential I believe. Once, Edgar Allen Poe had also declared that the most dramatic subject was death, especially deathy of a beautiful maiden. This shot reminds me of his famous poem:Annabel Lee.
''..And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling, my darling, my life and my bride,
In her sepulchre there by the sea--
In her tomb by the side of the sea....''

In this regard I think it would be a good idea to show the nearby sea in your shot, which I would hardly notice if you hadn't mentioned about. I also liked the statue of a lady behind the mausoleum, (reminds me of Maria Magdelena or Mother Mary from descending from the cross episode), which richly deserves to to have been accentuated. Here's my simple cropping to help reserve the attention for the subject matter...Thanx for sharing. I would like to see some more shots of this scene if you can provide.
