Well, as long as the tree doesn't fall towards us, mankind should be fine.

The line has a nice enough thought in it, but the visual doesn't work at all.

Neat illustration. However, it could have been much better. At the end, good job.

Our trees will going to die, if we say stop. It is so clean. Nice illustration.

I like it, but it is sort of confusing at first because the rainforest is intact by the seashore.

However if you look at this historically, with the tall ships to the south west and the landscape becoming increasingly destroyed the further north you go then it does make sense.

I fail to see why you think the art is so bad, I think it is quite wonderful.

The illustration is rather nice. Clean/cartoon effect noted, regardless..very nice. The composition is a problem, and as mentioned the copy is off.
Silver? Really? I am fairly new here and with the idea of the site, I'd like to stick around and be involved..., but I don't go for public/popularity vote based judging. It's basically invalid on all levels. ...I would love to see the rest of the contestants.
So, as I said...the composition and oval shape give subliminal signals and a juxtaposition of a weak image, surrendering...besides it looking like a toilet bowl. Sorry I had to bring that up, but psychologically speaking...think about it....The only reference the mind has of this shape is a bowl with lid.
Simply tilting this illustration would strengthen it...You don't have to be litteral with the concept/falling tree etc. that message is clear.
