Wow, that is complex, nice title too.

I almost prefer the original. The metallic blue gives something to the picture. Both shots are great though and definitely meet the challenge. Maybe a little more focus would have helped your score.

Thanks -- definitely my best score in a long time!

From the comments it seems I actually addressed the challenge topic in a straightforward way for a change.

Here's a link to a version (at pBase) in the original color; does anyone think it would have done better? I thought it was too dingy and grimy to score well, no matter how closely it met the topic.

This title is way too long... not effecting the vote. Just wanted to voice an opinion on it.
