I agree with the under-rated aspect. It's a work of art with the tip of the hour hand and number 9 in focus and standing apart from the rest of the image. The colors are rich and the shadows are excellent.

I gave you a 9 and it's already in my favorites.

Edit typos...

I don't know why this is showing up after the challenge because it was posted during. I knew this was yours. You have such a beautiful way with colors that really stands out. I too am surprised this didn't place much higher.

Good lord?!?! What do you have to do to win, give your first born?!? Exceptionally underrated. Voters don't understand you, I do. Unfortunately the more abstract art doesn't do well here :(

Beautiful image Bea.

Mysterious look. I love it.

Nice colors and interesting abstraction of line and form created from the areas of sharp and soft focus. I don't love it but I appreciate it.

Beautiful colors, nice composition

Well - Beatrice (dax) right ? this is excellent - the lighting and shadow are beautiful. This is perhaps a little too abstract for you to score very highly but personally I think it's one of the better shots in the challenge. 9.

Ten. Blue ribbon. This is beautiful work, ma'am. Beautiful. Your dof has to be approx. 1cm at best. If you don't ribbon here and I'm going to be disappointed with many voters.

I find this very dreamy and effective. Very metaphorical. Bumping. I hope it does well :-)

9-this goes on my favorites... especially like the orange and blue
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/22/2005 06:17:17 PM
very beautiful. Nice contrasting colours and tempratures. The dof should have been on something more lit though, its a shame. but very nice

dax? brilliant

i think it would have been better if the '9' was more in focus too, or stood out more.. but still very nice... 7

Beautiful

I really like the colors and the shapes working here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2005 06:17:44 PM
What a beautiful image! Really like your use of complementary colours and of light and deep shadows. The bokeh is beautiful in quality. The composition works well. And the ambience is richly whimsical, like the beginning of a story recounted by a deep timbred voice. 9!

Nice colors, definite DOF, but I'm not sure where the focal point should be. The upper tip of the hand might have been a better focal point. If the nine was the focal point, it's not clear that's the subject (unless you get a hint from the title).

I love the colors! Excellent shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2005 02:49:34 PM
I wish I could give you have past nine, 9.30, but because this is so attractive I give you 10. Wonderful shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2005 02:27:01 PM
Hmm...

No 1/2 points available, I hope a 9 was good enough?
