On a Scale of 1 to 10

Why are humans so critical? Do we truly believe we have any right to rate a person's appearance? Gorgeous, beautiful, pretty, okay, ugly...
We say things like, "On a scale of 1 to 10, what do you think he/she is?"
Who do we really think we are?
Genesis 1: 27 clearly states, "So God created man in His own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female He created them."
If we were ALL created in the image of God, who are we to decide whether or not a person is attractive or pretty?! How do you think that makes God feel?
Imagine you painted me three pictures, one was outstanding, two was okay, and three was downright awful. How would it make you feel for me to tell you that some of your work was good but others were horrible?
I can guess what you would be thinking. First, it would be something of hurt, "Wow, thanks a lot," then it would shift to something more like, "According to you it may not be good but since when do you set the standards?"
Exactly my point.
Since when do we set the standards for God's creation?
I believe that God looks at us when we rate His creation and says, "According to who's standard?"
Genesis 1: 31 "God saw all that he had made, and it was very good."
