Clever take on the challenge! wish for just a little tighter DOF. still right at the top! 9

Nice clean image with a neat little quirk. Slightly skewed which is at odds with such clinicism, but I like this.

certainly meets challenge and is original in concept

for wit and orginality alone this one deserves to do well. humour is definitely appealling. Equally appealing is the geometric and seemingly simple appearance of the picture. not 100% sure if this satisfies the SDOF angle of the challenge, but I'm giving it a 9 anyway.

I like the idea: find the execution of it a bit lacking however; somehow the impact of that single reversed switch has been lessened - probably by your choice of crop and composition. The obvious placement would, of course, have been to exclude the left-most switch entirely, which would have given the odd one out a stronger position within frame - however, as you've also cropped across the right-most switch, I guess you were trying for an impression of continuity - as though there were a vast bank of these switches. I think also you could have been more creative with your lighting - the first thing I'd have tried would be some kind of soft light from beyond the switches - to give a greater degree of light and shade to the individuals - basically, more contrast. That said, you've achieved a suitably anti-septic, 'scientific' feel here, which is by no means out of place - I just think that you could have used the reflectiveness of the surface to good effect also. DOF os effective, though in an ideal world might have been even shallower - but I guess one doesn't necessarily have the means ... definitely an above-average shot, though. 6 from me, for now.
