Not much to say about it, the title says it all. And I hope people understand the presence of a diagonal line is not required (as stated in the rules), as long as the image is based around a diagonal axis. I just hope I don't get DNMCed. Cheers!

I must say the diagonal is excellent in this photo and it's an interesting subject in it's own right. Your problem here is not with those imbecile low voters but with the ones that gave you a 5. As Art said, those two things could have easily made a big impact on those voters and everyone else voting in an honest way.

I don't understand this score at all..thought it was one of the better shots in the challenge...
beautiful colours, your composition fits the challenge and feels right...
I am pretty sure like others pointed out, your border hurt your score as well as your title...

Thanks Art, the title was only a joke, I could not possiblly name it like that:) thanks for the encouragements.

The border and the title hurt you - like it or not. The image itself would probably have placed in the top 50 if not for those distractions I mentioned. Remember - every little thing matters when it comes to voters. Only your third challenge - live and learn and don't get upset by scores.

Again, thanks for the votes. Don't realy understand how some ppl rated this so low. It's almost a school shot, rule of thirds and all. The composition is good, dunno if it deserved this ridiculous place. thanks anyway.

Very strange dock. The way it's photographed from above adds much to the visual effect. It almost looks like a model, except for the bottom showing thru the water.

title a bit too long and "explainatory"...the picture speaks for itself.

Other than the wonky border, not a bad shot.

The border is very distracting in your submission. There's a lit of colors and interesting lines within the picture and my eye is taken away from that by the border. Even with the border, your image is actually a bit small. Use the full size of the image that you are allowed. If you decide to go with a border in the future, use a smaller one that compliments the picture.
