Well I liked the high key contrast between the squirrel/tree and the sky and the main brancj running allong a rule of thirds line gives it a very strong composition...I may have preferred slightly fewer twigs in the shot to bring out the isolation part...but what can you do?

That squirrel looks rabid, watch out. My two dogs eat squirrels for lunch, well just the one. Brings one in every year.

The photo itself has some pretty nice lines, the pose of the squirrel really has a lot of interest and the processing is well done!

Nice! My only suggestion to enhance this shot would be to try for a different composition. Perhaps taking the shot at an angle, so that the branch created a diagonal line would make this slightly more interesting to look at...however, the strong contrasts here are great!

sharpness lacking, too back lit to make squirrel interesting

Is it an over-exposed silhouette or an under-exposed shot. Either way there are too many competing branches for the subject to stand out well.

I think that the subject, being the squirrel, Should stand out a bit more.
