Well I must admit, when I first saw this photo I was saying to myself, "What!?" So IMO it met the challenge well.

The problem that I am seeing with this photo is that while it meets the challenge it is just not holding my attention at all.

The way your photo is composed is making my eyes wander all over it really looking for a centre of interest, and yet nothing is catching my attention. The lines of the "long and smooth" just seem to be clashing at the wrong angle with the "short and stubby". It's almost as though you tried to line them up but didn't quite get it.

There is pretty much only a foreground in this photo which I'm not thinking is such a good thing. Maybe even a slightly bulky frame would have made this photo stand out more.

I think your DOF was a little off as I didn't like the fact that the bottom left was so blurry. In fact, nothing really seems to be sharply in focus.

Well, I'm afraid there hasn't been much great news with this photograph!

As I stated earlier, it did make me say "What!?" but more to the point it didn't make me say "Wow!".
