I wouldn't even pretend for a second that me misunderstanding and not seeing a point to someone else's photo makes THEM a bad photographer..I'd first consider that maybe I'M the problem, maybe I'm just not that bright, or just having a bad day. It's highly likely.

As a rule, you cannot define the skill of the photographer with one photograph. There are certain elements of a photograph that "sell" the picture to the viewers. The photographers are also biased because it is their picture, and there might be one thing that makes that particular photo stand out even if they lack the "selling" points that go along with the ribbon photos.

I've submitted some dreadful photographs, which is easy to say in hindsight. I don't think I'm a bad photographer because of it. I'm sure Ansel Adams has taken a few he's not so proud of.

If I, as the photographer, did not effectively make my point to you and you don't get the photo, that isn't your fault, it's mine. Sometimes its not about making points or conveying messages as much as it is making someone see things in a different and inspiring way. Pretty much to do the "mundane" challenge every week.

I planed to use this one but decided not to last night. It looks confused to me. There are buildings all around and cars so was unable to get a better shot.

Would have voted this an 8 or 9 just for the subject matter. Very unusual. Not all shots need to be a pretty picture for me.
