Due to the site being terribly slow for me right now, the comments and score came up and I saw all the positive comments. The score doesn't really reflect those comments, so I was all excited to be the commenter that got to really pick this apart. Then the image came up, and I really can't see much that I would change about it at all.
I love the DOF, focus is great and right where it needs to be.
The tones and color are great. This photo really creates a mood. A dark saddened mood, and due to the content of the photo, I feel that is appropriate.
The lighting is great, although I think my only nit pick with the photo would be that I wish I could see the part between From and for. It says Love From --- (maybe 'me'?) for chris (missing the s).
Not sure how you could have made it any clearer without compromising the mood of the photo, so really a well done shot.
I like the angle and framing/cropping you chose as well.
Overall a great image, lots of mood, technically well done. Definately fits the challenge.

I really like this picture. The focus and idea is very good in my opinion. And it's creative.

This one is the pick of the bunch for me. Beautifully dark, lovely tones, and the textures are something you could almost feel through the screen. I'm really hoping this image does well for you. 10

Neat idea to offer the writing and not just the branch.

A poignant shot, and an interesting way to break the monotony of a plain branch shot.

Alright, listen af first I wasn't incredibly impressed with this photo, however every single time I go back to look at the thumbnails this thing jumps out at me, and studying closely, i realize that it is truly unique, and beautiful. From a 5 to a 6 to a 7, and now congrats I just bumped you into my top 10. GL.

This is such a great image. I really hope it does well. I like this style of photography and sometimes it doesn't translate into the best votes....but I hope yours proves me wrong. Great Job!!! -- 8 --

I like this. Has that nostalgic feel with the sepia filter. A different take on the challenge - thank you for a break from the mundane.

I thought this was a unique idea and very well done. I love the shadows and lighting and the crop.... excellent shot.
