This was a great entry, one that I thought would do much better. I'm a fan of big brooding clouds, so I think that would make this stonger, but it's very strong as it is. A great job.

A very nice composition with a marshmellow like sky all very subdued however, I would have favored the snow a bit more as it is generally brighter then the wood. A strong and attractive study. Bumping up.

Good subject. I would have liked to see more contrast in the clouds. Great contrast and detail in the stump!

Nice compostion...I don't care for the sky (for some reason)...would have scored it higher if it weren't for that.

Gawd I love the texture, detail and tonal range of this picture, I only wish you would have done a slightly different angle, I think if you moved the camera slightly to the right, and lowered it just a bit, you would have a 10 from me. This angle doesn't quite give the dramatic feeling of an AA. GL

Full focus on the subject is near perfect. I like the subject a lot.

nice but a bit over sharpened (the halo around the tree roots are distracting)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice clarity and interesting subject. Tones are nice, too. It may be interesting to add some contrast to those clouds overhead. Nice work. 8

Shot on another day with more interesting clouds I this would have something. The contrast of the sharp prickly wood with a backdrop of fluffy clouds would be nice.

Here the composure of the sky is distracting to me, with the band of dark and band of light -- the photo feels a bit top heavy with those upper dark clouds I guess. I know that's not your fault, since you don't control the weather. But it might be a nice photo to reshoot another day.

I think the clarity and tonal range on the dead wood itself is great. Nice job.

I was torn between this and "a photograph is made, not taken." in the end I rated them the same. Personally I am not sure if the dark gray sky helps the image or not, I suspect it would have had more impact without.

Awesome! Would have been nice to see more pure white though.

High drama with the drift wood but the cloud seems overdone or smudged somehow
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful composition marred by the4 not-level horizon and an overall sense of flatness in the foreground. I suspect, though, that this was a really tough one to print. Stron entry.

Good one.
