Show us a photo of a clutch of electronic wires or connections or something to help illustrate this newspaper editorial.

To me this line in the challenge description tells me the shot has noting to do with the artistic quality of a photo. I think the voters got it right based on this. What shot do you think would have better illustrated too many wires in story in the paper? I personally don't like these kind of challenges.

But you won one of Jezsik's challenges, did you not?

I did. I didn't say I don't like all the host challenges, I said I don't like challenges like this one. For me the difference between the two is the wording of what the image is for. The wire challenge is all about illustrating a clutch or mess of wires for a story and that is rarely a pretty picture. A book cover tends to be positive to draw people in.

I might be wrong, but that's how I read them.
