Greetings from the Critique Clubk

Sometimes, I wonder. This deserves a higher score than it received. In my opinion, it met the challenge, head on. The voters thought otherwise.

Moving on: the composition is good, with the sap from the felled tree in exactly the right spot to attract attention. It's a bit hot at the right side, and I wish that limb to the lower left could have been a touch less bright. Nothing you could do about that with basic editing.

I would love to have seen this at bracketed exposures. Perhaps a 5.6, ISO 100. With a tripod, perhaps to stop possible camera shake.

About all I can say, is "keep 'em coming." You have a good eye.

Is that a bleeding tree? What does that, or the title, have to do with afterlife?

NOt sure this angle and cropping is as effective as it could have been but the picture is unique and a different take on the challenge.

Is that jam? Creative and different but you missing the subject may be?
