11/11/2009 09:47:47 PM EST: Well, this is going to be my personal best score. I'm very excited with this score, I really don't think this image is better than other that I had before with lower scores... But maybe I should consider that getting higher scores is just a matter of being more simple and objective on my photos.

Well, well, well! I finally got a new PB with this one and achieved one more of my objectives (get on top 10). I'm very happy with this, I'd like to thanks everybody who voted!

For anybody who may ask how it was done:
I was on the sea, on a small boat called catraia together with a group of photographers. The boat was very close to the ship and I zoomed until I got this view. From a series of 5 photos, this one was the one that I liked more the light.

Ah, I shoulda' commented on this one earlier, sorry. I gave you a 9, I think it's a fabulous shot. I'm the "other boat snout" in this challenge, and you whipped my butt. I love this image, and I'm delighted to see it garner a PB for you.

A new PB and a killer score. Congrats Marcus! (It got a 7 from me)

BTW, your comment in your notes is correct. You may have other entries that you feel are just as good as your best (I know that I do), but this is the one that had appeal for the most people. Simple and impactful gets the high averages.
