Up over a 6 which is nice. I'm very happy with my last comment, the commenter picked up on an aspect of the image I thought was very subtle but one I found very interesting myself.

As for the commenting in general, its going way slower than I expected! I still haven't finished commenting on the first 50 photos I voted on, sheesh. I need to be less verbose I think.

What wall is this?
The wall is in our minds.
If our minds are not covered over,
Then all affairs are open to investigation.
When our intent has been made genuine,
Then our minds are broad and
Our bodies are at ease.

On stats I'm currently at -

~You have rated 328 of 329 images (100%) in this challenge.
~You have commented on 33 images (10%) in this challenge.

...and please don't compromise on verbose. I got comment from you and I loved it. Let others have the same pleasure :) I have decided to give 'quality' comments to atleast 20% of the submissions.

Just hoping for 6+ on this one. But all 7 comments are good and at least I like my picture a lot. I don't like my entry nearly as much in Color on Color and it's at 6.2 Go figure!

Come on guys just a couple more "10's" pleassse....!

Is it just me or does this seem like a low scoring challenge? Personally I thought I would score quite a bit higher, but I don't see too many other high scores posted either. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate my score, but thought there would be more in the 6.5+ range.

Not bad, not great.... still I was expecting this shot to be less. I am pretty Zen challenged (the first two votes averaged a 4 so I figured it was another one of my trial attempts - hey if Bear can have them so can I ) :-) A couple of comments at least :-)

My score's poker hand. I have 5.8454

So - a pair of 4's and a pair of 5's --> two pair.

It's Score Poker, winner takes the pot :)

I think it's one of the misunderstood ones. Zen is the name, while 'serenity and simplicity' is the instruction. That's sort of two things, albeit far from mutually exclusive. Even so, some of the brightly coloured and noisy shots I've seen . . .

Maybe if the winner had a 5.5 average, we would share a great zen moment.
