RestingHello William

For a first go with something new - good effort- Large LED light take some getting used to.
I feel that the lights may have been too close - the white of the graves stones is too bright. If you have the chance to re shoot it try moving the lights back to give you some light fall off but make sure you don't get your shadow showing in the image. Try a different position - it looks to me as if the lights were to the left of camera, Try light at a 45 degree angle.
Have you heard of the inverse square law? Essentially it means that the further the subject is away from the light source, the larger that light source appears, but the weaker its strength.The trees and stones in the background are better lit because the light is diminished because they are further from the light source - the colours are very atmospheric.
I've tweaked your image slightly and uploaded it.

Keep at it - its early days.

black white and blue

black white and blueSomething different. I like the idea- but I think it would look better without the laundry basket -its a bit of a distraction.

Pointing up and looking down

Pointing up and looking downSomething different. I like it. I think I know what is wrong. The shots aren't balanced. The three on the left are fine.
Middle three - Try swapping the one with two feet at the bottom with the one in the middle. The right hand side - I think the top one is the Odd one out. I think you need another table leg shot here. Give it a go see what you you think.
