I am so glad that your photo wasn't DQ'ed.... I would never have gotten the chance to see it... When I first looked at this shot, before reading anything, it looked like a magnificant paintbruch creating a magnificant work of art..... this is such an amazing shot that I just look at it in awe..... so stunning - if i were to have voted on it, I would give it 10++++

I realized shortly after the contest began that I had not followed the challenge rules. I emailed SC and asked for my image to be disqualified. I also posted this thread in the forums:

I was told by several members of SC, in this thread and in emails, that not meeting the challenge rules was not grounds for disqualification.

Bear is correct. The image being commented on came 4th in the challenge. Surely this can't be correct? I know the rules say that you can't be disqualified for not meeting the challenge, but this really goes beyond that. It means that a place has been denied to someone who has followed the challenge brief - doesn't seem very fair.

Very cool lines. Busy but not cluttered. One of my favorites. Great contrast and nice light.

Looks like a venetian blind in the background... meaning its not an artificial light source. But, still a great composition.

My impression is that the light is coming from a sunny window (with closed blinds), so it doesn't count as "single, artificial light source", but I like the angles here, and the variety of stripes and curves.

I really love this shot, but I believe the light source is natural light. So, I'm torn. Gonna have to go with a 9.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, and assume that's not sunshine through window blinds, but a special (artifical) lighting fixture. Love the effect!
