Wow... very thrilled so far about 1/2 way through the voting. Hanging onto my second 7 right now with a 7.09xx. Get an occasional low vote, but the 8s have been really nice to balance them out. Thank you everyone. There are a lot of high scores going right now, so I figured once again I'll make top 10, but not top 5 and certainly not ribbon. It seems I only score well when the whole challenge is scoring well. Right now my hopes are for a little more climb to make this a new PB.

[Sep. 29th, 2012 10:28:32 AM]

Wow... right after posting this, got a 9, then a 10... putting me into a PB tie: 7.1429. Funny. :)

[Oct. 2nd, 2012 02:16:32 PM]

Ok... last day... less than 10 hours to go. Sitting on a PB at 7.15xx Will it last? Will it be top 5? Will it ribbon? Who knows!!!

[Oct. 2nd, 2012 10:20:49 PM]

Argh... a roller coaster for PB... Got up to 7.16, then dropped below... then climbed back up and a last minute 4 dropped me down again...

[Oct. 2nd, 2012 11:46:16 PM]

Thanks everyone for the great votes... No PB unless the scrubber wipes some low votes, but I usually lose higher votes.

Hopefully at least a top 10, but we'll see in 15 minutes.

================

Hey cool! My first ribbon! After 310+ entries... Very nice. Scrubber took out 3 votes averaging 9.0 each... so this is firmly a second best score, but nice to get a ribbon.

Thanks everyone and to those who advised me prior to entry.

Congratulations, Kevin, on your first ribbon, and especially for your wonderful photo. The light really makes this image a work of art, with that very strong composition. Great work!

very good study of the material and shape, great bw-conversion. the lint bottom right distracts a bit.
