Personally, the composition doesn't do it for me. The second image has an aura around the tree (hd issue)

Thanks, I did notice that around the tree - Someone care to explain why this happens?

It looks like somebody has a lot of fun with that poor tree in the middle of the circle. For shots like these, you need to keep it symmetrical. You're missing part of the the tire tracks on the right side. The tree itself is an interesting subject. Worth a trip back for a different approach and composition.

In the cemetery shot, why selective coloring on the blue sky? Is the sky the subject? This photo has a story to it, but you seem to have missed it. It's not the pretty sky. It's the fallen wooden grave marker juxtaposed with the more perennial and elaborate stone. There are many stories here. Pick one: the relativity of permanence, the fleeting interval of life, comparisons of the affluent and poverty-stricken, the successful and the failed life. Take your shot with something like this in mind. Work the subject; don't just snap away.

aura came from over processing your image

For #2, step back a few feet, shoot landscape to include all of the second grave marker and some of the scenic background. Full color.
