There are a few hidden things in the photo I didn't pick up on at first. I would say you used the rules very much to your advantage, very nice but I don't get the title. Maybe to much wine on my part. 9
Back to bump up to 10

Would have found this a lot more interesting w/out the animals, I really like the arm to the right though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

But... Where is the Jogger? Oh, nevermind, just saw the arm :)

The photo I like, nice job on shopping in the duck, the cat not as well done but very acceptable, had you added a bit more shadow on the top half of the cat´s head it would have been much more realistic. 7 from me.

I love this because of the dismembered arm laying over there by the cat that is looking at you like it wants to eat you :D Beautiful!

Heh - what a suprising picture. When you first look, it's a lovely enchanted forest... then the duck appears.. then the cat.

Holy Smokes! Dang, I made a rule...I rarely vote in challenges I've entered. I've entered a photo in this challenge. After seeing your photo, I mean really seeing it and thinking about the title, I'm tempted to change my mind...but alas, no. At first glance, I missed the details of your photo. I pray the other voters take the time to see what you have made. It is truely awesome! I'm sorry the 10 you deserve from me is for naught. At least I can save it to favs! Good luck to you...really...super job!

The size of the cat and the bird makes it too unreal for me.

You got me: I first reacted with "on no this is not harsh environment...it's beautiful" AND THEN I spotted the sinister beasties - well done!!!
