The colors in the sky reflecting off the lake can be so beautiful. The tree's silhouette is such a strong subject with a beautiful and colorful negaitve space background.

I don't think the fallen tree adds to meeting the challenge. From the lighting, I think I'd have moved to the right (if possible) and made the two trunks line up more tightly. I shoot a lot of sunsets and trees myself -- keep shooting as many as you can, they are worth every megabyte!

The tree on the left is a little distracting coming into the picture. I ilke the begining of the sunset. 5

I like the silhouette of the trees. I think if you had cropped out the horizon, it would force even more attention to them, though. karmat

The beginning of a good subject. Good color range. Focus a little soft, and the subject is not isolated as well as could be. 5.5 -> 6

I always love tree branch shots. Very pretty.

I would have liked this more if the was just the one tree in the shot. The lighting is good and your sky looks really nice. 6-Martin

Nice background. I like the idea, but I would have cropped the horizon out of thepicture to make it appear more abstract.

This is interesting, because i think I would like this photo MUCH more if the tree wasn't in it :) - jmsetzler

beautiful sky.

i was going to give my first 10 so far when i saw the picture loading, but when it got to the bottom and the land was showing it took away from the overall feel of the picture. if the land were cropped i would have given you a 10 for sure.

That's a nice silhouette, but the negative space is lacking

I think would of helped this to crop more off the bottom and show the top of the trees. Just MHO. :) Good luck. Score 6 Justine

I like this, but I think the lines of the tree would be stronger if you'd stepped to the left and had the diagonal tree more across the middle, and the other tree over to the right. Hope I'm making sense, it's early. :)
