I guess some people just didn't get it. The concept for this shot was that a seed did survive (thus the title "Survivor") in this starkness. The seed grew in spite of the harshness of it's surroundings into this tree. Some seeds will infact lay dormant for thousands of years until the conditions are right for it to sprout.
Unfortunately, the shot was not viewed in this light. Such is life!

This would have been a good single tree entry, nice colors and great scenery.

I normally love "Out of the Box" picture, but this is pushing it a bit too far.

BTW, this is a very nice picture, it just DNMC in my opinion. Sorry.

Would have been a great entry for "Single Tree" but for "Seed"? Anyway, nice shot!
