The road takes you to the tree and the tree takes you to the bird, all offset by very nice background colours. I like it.

The uneven horizon is a bit distracting for me. :~)

One of the better images in this challenge. Mostly, I like the sky gradient from the earth's shadow. Well done! Good detail and exposure of the subject. The bird is a plus, although that's unusual in landscape images. My first reaction to the horizon is that it's unlevel. But, could be hill country. 9

Nice tree makes a strong subject. Horizon off kilter. Colours quite good. 5.

I'm worried about your horizon. DPC tends to punish for such situations even if the land did slope, etc. Nice light and love your use of negative space. Good luck. 7

I like the colors in the sky. The horizon is very prominent, but feels strange since it's not completely horizontal. Though I think that if it were perfectly horizontal it would be even more prominent... hmm
