My preference would be a more focused image. I like where you were going with this, but again, the focus is missing for me.

Hey Kevin. I actually scored this a 7 so I am caught off guard by your 4+ score. Sitting here looking at the image a little bit longer I can probably give some feedback as to why it would be scoring low even though some of the issues are not big ones for me in this issue. I liked the simplicity of this, the colors are pleasing, the curved tips on some of the streaks and the square crop. I like the almost abstract feel of it. I do wish there was a bit more black around the image as a whole to better frame in the burst. I may have also jacked up the saturation everywhere but the center. Ideas as to why it may be scoring low - I guess the streaks may seem a bit soft but probably the biggest issue is that from a composition perspective it is just a single burst with no other dynamic or interaction around it. Like you were saying - it is not a scene. Full scenes do score better because it gives more of a story. That it is just a centered shot is probably hurting it too - but again that falls into the dynamic of the scene. 5 of my top 16 images (including yours) were of just a burst or multiple bursts - the rest were scenes (all my very top scorers). In challenges like these that can become very repetitious very quick you need to offer up that WOW factor to grab consistently. If your image comes up more consistently at the end of peoples voting queue then you are probably in trouble. Luck of the draw there. While I gave this a 7 I would not have been surprised to see it mid 5.

nice shot, but blurry.
