I don't feel that the image conveys instantly recognizable decision. The title is the only hint.

Am I caught by the anticiapation of a decision? Not really. I know that a cat is hanging in a tree and there is the possibility of catastrophe, but I cannot feel a decision upon me. The angle of view and placement of the main subject is hurt more by the placement of the branches. I cannot see the look on the kitten's face, the fear or thought that might be washing over it determining its fate to remain perched or fall. I find that the blurred fore branches contrasted with the one very well defined branch in the back right create a chaos, but does not invoke a decision for me. There is nice color in the leaves behind the cat, but even they are more well defined that the main subject's fur. I must offer a 2 on this image. It comes off to me as chaotic with neither a well defined subject or solid connection to the challenge.
