I capitured this shot while on my vacation to boston, Ma with my girlfriend, the place that i rented for the week had a great roof top deck with a beautiful view of the city surrounding us. i got fixed on this building and the reflection it holds on to.i took so many pictures of it but this is my personal fav. the only thing i did post prossing was resized, straightened a bit, and added the frame. thanx!

I voted this a 6, it's a good photo but nothing spectacular. Would have given a 7 if there wasn't the slight distortion visible at the left edge and the bold black border that seems to make the image darker than it is.

Besides that, have a lok at the ascores given to most ribbon winners (especially those with strong colors), they all get 1s, 2s and 3s. There's nothing you can do to stop those people.

I voted this one a 4 and I wish I had done it a little higher, maybe a 6. I tend to vote lower on "less creative" shots. The thing I dont like is the dark silhouetted building on the right. I think it detracts from your image a bit. One of the things I really like, which you probably noticed too, is the curviture of the building.

Cliche as it seems- what really matters, despite the low scores you received, is that you like it

This did very well - top 50 and almost a 6.0. You don't have a disproportionate amount of "low" scores at all. Perhaps there are voters who hate building reflection shots. There are students from classes who are viewing and voting as part of their school requirement - maybe they aren't putting much thought into it. In any case, seven votes of 3 or lower out of nearly 300 is not unexpected by standard distribution, and is in fact quite low. If you look at the ends - you have seven votes of 3 and lower, and 22 votes of 8 or higher. In other words, your voting is actually skewed a bit toward the high end. That would be a good thing! Also, for whatever reason, there are voters for whom a 4 is average instead of a 5. Oh - meant to start out with this - congrats on the new personal best! I'm sure you'll replace it with even higher scoring shots in no time at all!

How tall is the glass building? The reflection is obviously the subject as there is a definite pattern to it, but the glass is a secondary pattern and the windows are a tertiary. If there was a way to widen this shot, without losing the initial intent, I would love to see that result, just to compare.
