It seems more likely to me that the discrepancy reflects that your image is one of the prettiest entries but does not, perhaps, closely align with the consensus, among those who studied his work, of what a jmritz should be. I'd expect the entrants to have spent more time studying John's work than the non-entrants, so I'd expect perhaps exactly this discrepancy in the scores, because that's a VERY painterly and lovely image. but the clarity of it is not what the challenge suggested to me.
Good point, Robert.
