|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.
