Hello and greetings from the Critique Club. After viewing the photo I have a couple of suggestions. First off let me tell you this is a nice depiction of the challenge. I like the rules of 3rd here. You have very good exposure to keep the sky nicely colored and the foreground good as well. I might suggest that you would try to not take the photo during such a high sun time though. With not so harsh lighting you could have brought out more detail by using the shadows of sidelighting from the sun. Adding a little color in the sky besides blue(sunset type sky) would have been wonderful. Overall well done and scored very good in this challenge. Good luck with future challenges.

I already voted a while ago, now I'm back for commenting. I gave this picture a 9. I think it conveys the meaning well. The burnt tree trunk shows the final doom of something living. Well done.

Cool photograph. IMHO, the use of a poloriser would have worked nicely here as the blue in the sky would have been possibly a bit richer, increasing contrast between the sky and clouds. Otherwise V-nice. 7

I think this shot is awesome and I like the feeling of desolation and the composition. I thought I would have liked to have seen alittle bit more PP on the image so I played with it alittle bit.' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/22301/thumb/350131.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/22301/thumb/350131.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' I hope you didn't mind and if you want me to get rid of it I will, or if you want to know what I did I can do that too, just send me a PM. However when I look at the two together I don't know if I did any improvement, just another interpretaion. Abit lengthy, but let me know if you want me to get rid of the photo I used, great photo. 9
here is the link again just try adn paste it I think

Very well done, I really like this. The burned tree is almost like a work of art with figures rising from the ashes.
