Avi,

 

This is cool.  I like the mysterious feel about it.  I am concerned a touch with the tree getting chopped along the top of the frame?  Also, how would this look maybe if shot in the vertical format?  I'm wondering if it could be a stronger image that way?  I do like what you have here.

I was a little concerned at first with the amount of darkness at the bottom. After giving the image a few moments, time to really look it over and get the feel, I like it as is. Well done.

Shooting head-on into the Sun is one of the toughest lighting situations we face. I'm wondering whether some shadow and highlight recovery would help bring down the contrast and expose some more details. I love seeing over the top of the clouds on the left, but the lack of detail in the shadows and the blown out sun and clouds in the sky are distractions for me.

Avi,

I broadly agree with Walter, but just want to add that this is one of those photographs that I just have to keep coming back to look at again and again - partially as I try to make my mind up about it with my technical head on... and partially as I find it quite interesting as a photograph despite... or possibly because... of the flaws.
