Your histogram is a waving flag. I prefer this to Jasper Johns any day.

Brilliant and sadly underappreciated by the masses.

Never managed to make any comments in this challenge but I did vote. This was my equal highest score. I'd have said something nice about it.

This got my only 10. I really love this. And I see that Posthumus thought so too. Can't believe it placed so low.

Originality: abstracting star/stripe ides of Independence Day without the cliche colors
Composition: excellent balance of light and dark, shapes and negative space, near symmetry with interesting variation
Narrative: allows viewer's imagination to play with what you present
Highest score in the challenge on my scale. Sorry to see my red bar at the upper end lacking appropriate company.

This is a good example of why voting doesn't work. Bottom three? I had this as top three and I prefer it to at least two of the three ribbon winners. To each their own I guess.

You belong on the Island of Misfit Holidays, which earns you the right to post this on your profile:

finest Independence Day photo I've seen...If you ask me
The torments of a nation, free of bellicose pride and nationalistic iconography

I really like this. It is unusual, but I hope the voters see what we see. Nicely done.

I see a star otherwise this abstract image does not indicate much to this viewer.
