oh wow Barry ..
thankyou for putting little Leo and mr tod in this thread ..
as i said in my blurb i cant think without bias about those two ..
and i really think stacks of my pics are just snapshots with some editing to make them look more appealing .. so i'm very pleased that you thought my pic was worthy of this thread ..
thanks again .. :)

As to the blue window, legs photo, sorry I don't know how to put in the image, I gave it a 7 because it was beautiful and evocative. Maybe too evocative, which dampened my reach. The high up, vertical positioning of the legs is suggestive, to me, of a hanging, perhaps a suicide. Can't always be objective, and though many proclaim that art thrives on the provocative, even on the disturbing, on this one I bailed. Maybe other voters felt similarly, don't know. Just a personal take.

the foot fetishists didn't like that one because they didn't get a clear view of all the toes, etc.

I usually take a look at where my top picks (vote of 8 or more) end up and note the ones that didn't make the Top 10. Sometimes they mostly align with the final results; more often than not there's a handful that don't.

Feel free to add your "amazed at surprises" here as well if you'd like to.

Changing the threshold from Top 20 to Top 10 ... spin off from prior thread.

Thanks so much, Barry. I was so taken with the light patterns in this skylight shaft that I went back for more pics over a period of several days and worked up a series of them LOL Lovely to have one "appreciated" in this way.
