HI greetings from the CC, well my initial thought when i saw this shot I thought would of been good if the top of fence had been cropped out, focusing the eye on the tree and snow, had you shot in aperature priority you could of added some DOF to blur the fence which again distract the viewer from the true subjects at hand. I think that it is also the snow and tree truck is where the points of interest are, focusing on these two elements would be my advice : ). Also keeping strictly on challenge helps shots to score higher with most dpcers'.
keep shooting

Nice shot, interesting composition. It doesn't convey the message of conflict by itself.

The background is much more interesting than the subjects. Too bad you couldn't have used that for the challenge.

Wonderful play of textures, color, light. This is a beauty.

Very sharp! What would it look like with the dirt cropped off. Nice conflict.

That is some really dirty snow.

Interesting shot. Is this dirty snow the conflict ?

Clever, but not very pretty.

nice pic, but (for me) does not fit the challenge well - it doesn't say 'conflict' without an explanation. Show the pic to strangers, and say nothing. Ask "What is the first thing that comes to mind?" or even 'What is the conflict in this image?' and let me know if anyone gets it.
