Greetings from the Critique Club! :)

I will attempt to critique your image on four basic areas. Keep in mind I'm not a trained professional. ;)

1. Composition: Lovely composition of elements, however, there is a bit of "flatness" as there is no real visible fore, middle, and/or background. Rather one-dimensional, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It looks like a tapestry to me.

2. Technical Details: Your focus seems the tiniest bit soft. Sometimes that's good, when you're wanting a dreamy feel, but other times it's just one more thing the voters will find to drop crucial points off of the score. I think it works OK in this shot, as do most of your commenters.

3. Aesthetics: Very beautiful and emotive. The colors are lovely and rich.

4. Relationship to Challenge: I think it meets the challenge 100%.

Overall, your image has some strong points and some points in which improvements can be made. Keep shooting and submitting and I look forward to your next entry!

Laurie :)

Nice mood, nice colours. Super nice sun.

The bottom line is that this is a tree, not a branch. Your title highlights the branches though.

Bit of a speck just to the right of center.

(10 if there was a couple of ninjas in the tree)

Beautiful. This image is so much more than a branch. In a challenge full of trees you have really captured one of the best shots. Great Job

Whatever the figure is in the background is creating tension. Otherwise I like it!

imo, cropping the sun out would be a big help on this one

I love the colors. It would be perfect without the building, but you can't readjust nature. The single tall tree is nice with the sun setting. Well composed.

Wonderful tones, excellent focus for a crisp silhouette. The building in the background takes away from the simplicity an otherwise wonderful shot.
