Ps. Quite a number of commenters expressed the opinion that my entry shoud finish in the top 10 or even ribbon and I appreciate those comments but with this score it definitely wont happen.

......Went down to this from a 6.77xx within 2 votes!
Those who vote down that obviously, please tell why!


Sadly, that's the hard part on this site, getting those who distribute low votes to say why. Everyone commiserates with you!

*ahem RANT WARNING*

Hey, all you trolls, just so you know...giving everyone shitty scores will NOT make your score rise. In fact your score will assuredly sink, as your small-minded meanness affects everyone else in a negative manner, and thus they tend to vote in a negative fashion. And that will more often than not include your image.

So give it up. Give good images the votes they deserve. Be man/woman enough to give images better than yours worthy scores, and guess what? Eventually, you will be rewarded with high scores, perhaps a ribbon, if not immediately. Karma will indeed catch up to you, however, if you continue to vote in such a petty fashion, and you will never experience true happiness, because your ongoing misery will only rebound on you. I've seen it happen often enough, sometimes in jaw-dropping fashion. Feel free to send me a PM asking for examples and I will gladly supply them.

And if you are a past ribbon winner, indulging yourself by those that might bump you out of the top three...shame on you.

*rant over, you may now resume your normal Perspective Scores programming*
