Not much to say about the photo, I quite like the light..but the cross was too dark, I have to brighten it up on PS. Maybe I should use flash, but I didn't want to make a big fuss...Is it alright? Thanks for looking.

I like the way the plants are lit up like fire behind the darker cross. Tricky lighting handled very well.

There's just enough detail in the cross for me, Jasmine. The vibrancy of the backlit flowers ensures the cross stands out in front.

I think the crocosmia is the star of the show, Jasmine, with that beautiful light upon it, and the shape of the cross stands out nicely against it, also highlighted around the sides to accentuate its contours. I don't think it matters that we can't read the inscription because it's your use of light and shadow that makes the image striking, and you are so good at doing that. I think you have brightened the cross just enough. I like the idea in your title that the bright orange flower heads represent Lucifer.
You might like to consider cropping the grass at the bottom. If you scroll up and eliminate the bottom grass, you will see that the eye settles nicely on the cross with no distractions, and the darkness of the background is complete all the way around.
