Wow, this is going to be an incredible score. Up to 7.70 after 20 votes, down to 7.35 and up again to 7.70 after 60 votes (got 15 8+ votes back to back!) and still in that region.

At least I learned something with this image: Don't leave the house* for the best shots and keep it simple!

Thanks to all for voting and commenting and special thanks to my Glasseye buddies for showing me what kind of simple image would do well and for helping me to submit the right one.

* I've traveled a lot to get my landscapes but none of these landscapes score as well as this simple floating boat image that was taken from my bedroom window

Don't leave the house for the best shots and keep it simple! Bit confused about what you said in your notes, are you saying you live in a boat:)

Well done, knew it would do well!
