I just came in 35th in the I Dream Of Wires challenge. I'm sorry, but I absolutely do not understand the voting that went on. I don't usually make a point of criticizing other photographer's work, but the winning entry and runner-up have no artistic merit whatsoever. I mean none... and I am sorry for singling them out, but I have to say that losing to snapshots with poor color, framing, incorrect exposure, and no composition makes me want to avoid entering any more.

These results are what I'd expect based on my own experience with challenges. The closer you match the challenge description the better, regardless of artistic merit. I'd expect photos with lots of prominently featured wires to do well. When I look at your photo I think the birds look more prominent than the wires.
