|It is quite obvious that very few people really paid any attention to the topic. Either that, or I completely misunderstood it, but if so, I'm not alone, as there were a few others who took the Advanced Editing Rule to heart and used it to the full extent. The fact that just about every one of those shots which had effects work done on them got low marks can only mean that the vast majority of the voters either didn't bother to read the Rules, or didn't care. Sad, really...
There was one comment which had value: "A little more clarity and this could have potential." I can see the point being made. The effect I was going for was that of a pencil sketch of a deadbolt. I added the grain to heighten the contrast, but I might have overdone it.
I also appreciate the '9' that I got; at least one voter understood what I was trying to do: thanks!
