Uh, ok
Like many of my recent tiles, I like this one. Except for the ugly tornado thing. And like all of my recent (hah, yeah right, half of my highest-rated tiles were from my newbquilting) tiles, it currently has a score below 3. Would anyone care to actually post on one of my tiles to explain why you're voting thusly?
Re: Uh, ok
Poor guy, sandwiched between 2 of my tiles ;-)

Well, I haven't voted yet and can't speak for anyone else, but I think you did a good job. I'm not good at giving critiques. I either like something or I don't. Anywayz... I think you did an awesome job on the blends & continuation of the colors & the ship. I think it fits in well with the rest of the busy sky and seems to be pulling in those black birds & spitting them out the other side.
Re: Uh, ok
i didn't vote on this one either Chris... here's what i see though, since you want feedback... if you look at the tiles to either side, you'll see they have some interesting recognizable shapes. your's is well done, but it's more of a transition tile [nothing really grabbing attention] and it seems that purely transition tiles usually get average scores. i hate critiqing, but that's my 2 cents worth. peace and keep tiling
Here its good to see how bad it is, if corners arent shown, although they're rdy.
Its not necessary for a quilt to get those unfitting situations like in the lowerleft corner.
(this has nothing to do with the tilers ;)
Oh, yeah
I know exactly what you mean. I think that corners should be treated exactly like adjacent borders -- no checkout of a tile diagonal to a currently-checked-out tile should be allowed. That would help prevent situations like diagonal tiles with different colors in the corner from arising in the first place, as well as making blending significantly easier.

By the way, thanks for posting, everyone.
Re: Oh, yeah
on the other hand, it would make A LOT LESS tiles at any point available...
