Greetings from the Critique Club...

I'm sorry but I don't have a lot to add from the comments you've received so far. I think the reasons given are probably the ones that had you score lower in the challenge:

- no clear subject(s)
- bit too similar to other entries
- wide DOF so background and foreground compete for attention

For "frame-filling" shots (i.e. ones without a clear subject and even dof) to work, I like to see a more consistent item (in this case it would be leaves OR branches) so there's some unifying element. Here my eye jumps randomly over the image but there's no pattern(s) that satisfy.

If you have any questions or comments feel free to send me an email.

Happy Shooting,

Feels cluttered...what is your subject or focal point?

The color is wonderful. Nice texture on the right side of photo. Thought it was too busy, though. Didn't like the tangled look of the branches.

Looks over sharpened (or over processed in some way)

Applaud your depth of field, many many in th challenge haven't managed that. Thcomosition is just a littl too confuzzling for my liking

Pleasant focus on the leaves.

The focus is good, but there is too much in the shot. A close up on an area showing some of the detail in the branches/leaves might have been a better image. Still a nice job.

I'm guessing you were hoping to suggest a defiant remaining green leaf still clinging on with the weather getting colder? If so then one green leaf against a starker backdrop of tangled branches would have worked better.

Just the same as the rest is the only complaint I have here, there just really isn't anything that makes it stand out from the crowd.

a bit too grainy, but fit the challenge well

dopth of field, color, and contrast are good, but it lacks a real subject for the viewer, doesn't engage
