Hi from the C Club

Excellent shot, sharp clean details, very nicely sharpened.

I think the only thing that is hurting this photo is the size. Remember that you can go up to 640 on one side and the lower the resolution is the bigger your picture will be, so instead of 300, try 150 or even 100/ If you feel that you are losing details then go up.

Greetings from the Critique Club...

A score of 4.74 isn't particularly impressive in this challenge unfortunately. You have to ask yourself why viewers didn't like this image, and there are several potential explanations that I'll touch on here. The first one that comes to mind for me is your choice of subject. In a "Life and Death" challenge, I would expect to see a lot of tombstones. It's a stereotypical choice of subject for this challenge and it's also an easily accessible subject, so I expect that this challenge was full of them (I didn't vote in the challenge so I don't really know this to be true... It's just an assumption.) With the establishment of a stereotypical choice of subjects, you are forced to provide a much higher level of visual and/or emotional impact. The perspective you chose is interesting, but the light and environment just don't seem to provide any particular interest. The interesting detail in this cross seem to be at the top rather than the bottom, and your choice of perspective doesn't really highlight the interesting part of the subject. The top of the cross also argues with the tree in the background for attention. I'm not sure how to suggest improving this photo other than exploring your compositional opportunities and working with some more interesting light options...
