stupid sensor dust.

i pulled off the highway (i-65 south Indiana)...
there are so many good things to photograph on the side of the road. I didn't shoot a lot here because it was so cold and foggy and windy and I didn't have snowboots.

Nice. Simple. Straight to the point. Stark minimalism at its best. 8

Doesn't fit into challenge topic as no fear is shown or implied

I love the starkness of this photo.

probably would look better with a graduated neutral density filter.

can't see any death in this image, only a tree in hibernation, but the composition is excellent, way overexposed, but I think that's what you were trying so no minus for that...

Does the white represent the great unknown? I could conjure up fear form that, but really the feeling I get is more serenity, not fear from this image. Nice composition though, it would make a great CD cover image I think.

I really like the simplicity of this image, just not sure what a scrub tree and farmers fence has to do with dying. Overall its a pretty good shot "8"

The title of the photo meets the challenge, but not the photo itself. Use this picture in a more appropriate challenge. Otherwise, it is a nice photo.

Merry Christmas

Wow, complete white, love it with the title. It does bring out a fear of "nothingness". Good job!

Hmmm, I'm not sure how this scares me. I think we are all afraid of dying, but I'm not sure this fence scares me to death. Maybe it's the vast emptyness on the other side. Anyway, this is actually a good photograph by technical aspects. I can't quite give you a great score though because it just doesn't bring a lot of fear to the viewer.

lovely shot but the alegorical often get hammered in these challenges. of course in a week this will be a much better photo than most of the top ten finishers when no one cares about the challenge topic.

Interesting contrast, tree, and fence line, but I think that cropping more would be better. Meeting the challenge is somewhat of a stretch.

Great interpretation and use of symbolism!

into the white nothing and the little tree is so pretty

I like the image, but somehow the fence seems to detract from the image overall. The dead grass along the fence line does a nice job of grounding the tree.

wow... the empty space and the lonely-looking tree really sets the mood here. I like the way the brances of the tree sort of fades off. 9
