I guess this is gonna fail in this member challenge, while I am sure it would ribbon if this was an open challenge. Members are less impressed by cliché shots like this - or do they just vote them down? Prediction: 6.5. Wish 7.1.
More guesses: 2-3 members will correctly guess it's mine. 2 comments stating sth like "Cliché shot, but extremely well done". 1 comment mentioning "stock". 1 voter guessing this is ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) .

My 400th entry, BTW (self-DQ's don't count).
Currently sitting at 6.91 (high 7.333, low 6.86). Maybe a ribbon?

If this is not a proof of what DPC loves the most, then I don't know what is. Congrats!
