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.

Good points, Mike, but don't forget that photography about more than pretty pictures. So much of photography today is used only to draw attention to something else (I love to use American Apparel clothing ads as an example). The art director might be called upon to find any sort of image to meet a client's requirements, including an unusual pictures of wires that compel a reader to investigate further.
