I mean last time I got the salt and timing wrong, plus had to switch ovens midstream, so here's my do over.

I forgot to cover it when rising so the top dried out a bit resulting in the swirly top vs. seeing the scoring I made on top - didn't have a razor blade though so that might be part of the problem. I let it bake a bit longer remembering advice I got to do so. The result is the nice dark caramelized top. - I let it go 2 minutes longer than I wanted on purpose. It's got a nice crisp crust, great oven spring IMHO and the crumb looks pretty good too. I'm kinda excited by it (folks, it's my 2nd loaf of bread ever). The crumb looks better doesn't it? The battery died after taking that one shot of the slice, so I'm waiting to cut it further after it recharges, but so far, so good - I think. What do you think?

You can see the wrinkle here from the dried out top I forgot to cover:
