This is an interesting idea. I think it could have some potential, but the execution in this case seems to really be wanting more. The lighting here is not working. The top roots are overly bright, and the rest of the area is very flat. Did you use flash? Maybe using an external light, like even work lights, or something like that. This would give more control, and ability to get even lighting and a good exposure. It might help get better focus also. You might want to try a little tweaking in post processing also. Even just some minor levels or curves adjustments, just to try and get a little more depth and contrast, a more dynamic tonal range throughout the shot. The composition could be a little stronger. That's just a matter of learning and studying compositional techniques, and applying them to your photos.

Sorry, but the harsh shadows, blown highlights, and lack of a clear subject really hurt this for me.

Blown out in front, lacking contrast in the back.

It's rather harsh. I'm guessing you used the camera flash? But, an interesting take on the challenge.

Bizarre, surreal and slightly claustrophobic...I love it
