Thanks for the detailed (and quick) feedback. Quite useful!

I do agree that simple shots usually make for stronger images. Here the simplification intended was the tree being turned completely black as a mere sihouette against fairly simple sunset colours, with a feeling of being inside the tree.

... But yes, maybe the image is too busy.

The main trunk was placed in a sort of rule of thirds position leaving room on the right for the sunset colours. By the way, the orb is a windchime hanging in the tree.
I'll see if I can improve it when we get the next sunset here.

Thanks to you for an interesting and well organised challenge!
Congrats to the winners!
