Wow...I can see so many stick figures in this shot, and it is a dead branch. Great job in selecting such an interesting image....and placing it alone. :)

i like the lighting. very dramatic.

this is really cool but its a little blurry

I admire the simplicity of this shot. There are a few places on the branch which look overexposed, but it creates a nice stark effect. The gray background, which I did not like at first glance it more and more appealing every time I look at it. 10.

If the background was a little less pixelated, it might look much better.

A tighter crop might do it better justice, but a cool shot anyhow.

Seems unfocused, and the placing bang in the centre seems uninventive and dull.

Using a lighter colored back ground would have added to this picutre, black / grey takes away from the picture...

It seems a little oversharpened but the comp and colors/lighting are great.

The harsh lighting on this one works well. Good job

Reminds me of my ill fated bonsai tree!

A tighter crop would bring out the subject more. Nice shadows.

Could be dead, but the pic is not. Nice lighting !

so stark... I like the play of light on here

A bit more cropping from the sides and I would have scored this higher. I think cropping it closer would create a more dramatic impact.

concentric rings in sky distract, unusual (well done) lighting

I really like the lok of this photo. I like the composition and the DOF is very good. The harsh lighting is the only drawback.
