We'll see how this does. I like the picture and both trees and streams have branches. Taken at Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The stream is just above Blue Hen Falls.

The first thing that I notice in this photograph is the waterfall, which is good, although the challenge was branch, your DOF is to small, you could have gone with a wider open DOF maybe 5.6 or so, this would give it focus from front to back, what i think happend here is you wanted the cotton candy effect for the water fall, so you used a slow shutter speed, but the wind was blowing which resulted in the leave being out of focus.

The color is good, i love the green

The border is a good touch
overall your photograph is a good shot,would be much better if the leaves were in focus,

Keep shooting,

Too noisy in some spots. I like the little waterfall--I wish the branch didn't interrupt it; you could say the waterfall was a branch of a river or something.

I like the water fall but i think the branch is very blurry. I mean it is a branch competition. Nice job though. I like the colors you used.

A very well composed scene. In fact a field lesson in photographing moving water.

real pretty scene! I think I'd like to see the branch more in focus and the stream a little less prominent.

Beautiful shot. Personally I'd crop more off the top. The DOF/blurry top branch is a little distracting.

The scene is very nice, but the shot is ruined beause nothing appears to be in focus.

branch seems like it is there for sole purpose of satisfying challenge. would have been nice if the green from the leaves covered up the branches more

The focus has moved from the branch (which needs a more careful focal range) to the water falling (which would still be obvious without sharp focus, especially the way you have captured the light so well)

very nice contrast,very clear,very peaceful.i like it.

Wow... Beautiful rich tones and lovely composition. Very nice job.

The Branch, which should be the main subject for this challenge, is out of focus / Blurred. It appears as if waterfall is the main subject! 6.
