Connection with challenge theme: apparent, symbolic, concrete.

Technical merits: Focus is inadequate, and slightly overexposed. Color is somewhat problematic with a strong reddish cast in the shadows and greenish cast in the highlights. Shadows lack detail due to overwhelming dynamic range.

Artistic merits: Couple conveys your message very well. Some unnecessary and distracting elements in the framing to the left and uppermost edge. I think a different angle may have served you better.

Overall: I like your approach (concrete symbolic) to this challenge theme. The execution was somewhat flawed on technical grounds, as well as artistic grounds as outlined above and points were taken from both arenas.
