Better than expected, I'm not fully satisfied with the image, too dark and the grid is distorted, still too much scratches on the plexi - but I'll get new boards next week.
Now waiting for the first commenter sayimng "this has h2 written all over it"

14 votes: still 7.785 then two new votes and a baghead leaving a very positive comment, but score rushes down to 7.25 which averages a vote of 3.5 for these two voters. So, if nothing else occured in the meantime, the baghead has given a maximum of 6? People, why can't you just be honest?
[Apr. 15th, 2013 02:55:31 AM]
Down all the way to 6.81 in the last two days, but tonight a sudden rise back to 7.22. Have there always been those big swings?

Post challenge: Overall result of the challenge surprised me, had expected the red or the yellow ribbon at best - and most of my favorites ended in the 20s to 40s...

Belated congratulations on the blue ribbon. A fantastic image that I thought would win it all

I figured it was you that hired the mob that caused my .2 drop in the last day! I heard that it was originally a hit, but they thought that was a bit too much... :)

15 points?? *sigh*

Congrats again... (said in an incredibly depressed, slightly droopy voice. ;)

Glad your last night swing was up - mine wasn't. Wonderful work as always - 9 from me as there was just a little too much going on for my taste. Congratulations on the blue.

One of my favorites. Great colors

Overall, wonderful. Whatever the little dark spheres are I think they distract more than contribute. That said, this is still one of my high scores.

Beautiful light here, one of my two 10's for the challenge.

Incredibly sharp and crisp image! Quite lovely. On the fence about the black balls though, don't feel like they add to the image in any meaningful way.

Very visually appealing. Eye-pleasing composition. Interesting arrangement of spheres. Great refraction and use of a mirror base.
