I definitely like the idea here for matching the theme. I lose the bottom of the tree though in the bottom. I wonder if a different angle would have helped to isolate the tree more, while still showing the burnt out area. There's also something sticking in the upper left corner which probably should be cropped out. 5

This is a really nice shot but it just seems to blend in too much with the background.

The tree is bearly visible against the background. The bright rocks and sky fooled your camera's light meter into into thinking the scene was better lit than it is. It would be better to use spot metering on the tree and then adjust the sky later if it is too blown-out.

great idea ... though really hard to see the tree .. perhaps pulling a little closer to the subject and getting a slightly different angle might have worked better

Its nice and dramatic colors. I like the contrast between tree and dark background just focus feels a little soft.

The overall effect is: arid. Interesting forms.

I love the idea...but the tree is kind of lost in the intensity of the background

the colors hurt this one for me. the tree except for the branches is lost in the shadow of the hillside. there's a silhouette of another tree that is distracting.
