A difficult shot to pull of in the best of circumstances, this is a creative use of lighting, unfortunately it falls just short of being really effective. The overdone flash created a cartoonish effect on the palm and detracts from the rather dramatic sky. A softer flash, perhaps through a gause screen or a light reducer would have been a better choice. A good solid effort though and it clearly meets the challenge criteria.

Flash hurts, very flat, subject is nothing to wow. Sky is nice though.

This would be better if the tree wasn't blindingly lit... beautiful sky tho.

I think this would be nicer if the tree wasn't so overly lit, needs a bit more contrast to give it some depth.
