Having started with a meager 4.7 and having climbed ever since, now almost standing still around 6.0 since vote 51. That's what you get for out of the box entries.

Curious to see - after rollover - if someone from the lowballing group of voters will declare their vote - and maybe give a reason.
I suspect it is just too vivid and not enough "in your face" kind of silent.

Climbed up to 6.22 an got a super nice comment from SHEZ.
Quite happy with the score and comments, I thought it would be a love it or hate it shot when I decided for the pink background.

Wow. Down from 6.24 to 6.07 with the last few votes or through the scrubber, a blue ribbon with 6.6 - maybe DPC doesn't like silence...

Hey Oliver - v nice shot - really like the colour schemes you have chosen here and clean simple layout.

Nice picture of 'Silence' for me and something that I would frequently like to do to my alarm clock.

Thought this would finish on the fp, Oliver. Voting has been rather wonky lately.

I'd say it's half full :).
I really like this, it would have been a high mark had I voted this challenge. Crazy idea.

Perfect challenge fit Oliver. I have had good images slide due the total lack of OOB mentality with a large enough percentage of voters here to kill an image.

Clever, sharp, and punchy. I have certainly felt like doing just this when the alarm went off some mornings. Voted earlier.
