Well, kinda straightforward. Or it can give you something to think about if you desire or are that kind of person. Does it fit the challenge? I think so. It seems to portray desolation, barrenness, devoid of life, etc to me. But I could be way off base, sure wouldn't be the first time :-) We shall see what the voters think.

In ps-rotate, crop, a little cloning out at the bottom, levels, curves, quad tone, little more levels, screen and overlay layer opac. dropped, little bit of dodging and burning for drama, curves, smart sharpen, resized, usm, border, sfw.

thanks for checking out my pic :-)

You have the start of a good idea. I thought about putting a bovine skull out on a parched landscape but couldn't come up with the skull. Even though you did a good job of depicting the skull (sharp, good tonal range although a little hot, and nicely framed) isolated on a wall to me it lacks interest.

Nice tones. The symbolism is not too bad either.

Too much contrast for me. I don't like the duotone.
