I love the subject, exposure and the darkened sky. The snag in the foreground competes for my attention with the beautiful background mountains and sky and is therefore distracting. I don't know which one I should be focusing on. I know the snag was supposed to add interest but it's too dominant in the picture. Perhaps if you were to move back a little. Just my humble opinion.

Chreers, Steve

Yeah, he left no stone (or fallen tree) unturned to make this image sing. I am green with envy.

But, where is the Empire State Building?

This picture will be interpreted many different ways. To me, the dead and twisted tree is a necessary part of the whole idea. I see a stark contrast between the dead tree and all the other living and changing elements in the scene, including the storm which is about to replenish the earth with water. I like it as is, but that is only my humble opinion...
