Unfortunately, the bar from the window is dividing the photo directly down the middle. I think this could have had more visual power had the bar been on a 3rd. Usually, I don't try to push the "rule of thirds" but I do think it could have worked in this shot. Also, while DOF is important, I think that it distracts a little here by making the left curtain oof and the right curtain sharp focus. I like the point of view, and the shot has emotion. Weather it be that you are looking out and glad your inside *which is my feeling* or looking out wishing you were out there. Something to keep an eye on would be your background. If there is a strong horizontal line, try to keep it horizontal. I realize what you did here was to keep the strong vertical line vertical, which is also good, but your tree kind of looks like it's going to slide off the left side of the world. :) Very good idea for the challenge. Good luck. ~Heather~

the vertical line right in the middle's a little troubling, maybe if you moved it to the right or left.

I like that you are forcing your viewer to actively participate in checking the weather outside. Your viewer is also urged to peer out of the window. Very clever.

Eye-level POV doesn't add to the photo. In its own right, the image does work, but the POV doesn't seem, to me, to be a significant aspect of the photo.
