This is Kari Ann, greetings from the Critique Club:

composition: here is an example of where centered composition works extremely well and to the advantage of the photo. The tree is so dominant that i can stare at the intricate details of the branches for hours. very well done

color: black and white is a great choice for this shot, it adds such drama

contrast: High contrast works wonders here, allowing the tree to really be separate against the ominous clouds.

focus: spot on, very sharp throughout the entire frame and exceptionally well on the tree

depth of field: cant say much here, but i can say that the choice of 5.6 was obviously a good one.

lighting: great lighting here, perfect weather for the location and the mood of the image

other: great job on such a powerful image. It brings the viewer in, and makes them sit there and look for a minute or so. Great find, and great finish in such a array of good images. Also, congrats on the new personal best! If you have any more questions, feel free to PM me anytime.

I like the dark to light bottom to top effect here, and I really like the shape of the tree. You found a good one.
