i pulled the one id shot for this, as i feared a dq. so then went with a shoe horn, which then crashed aperture and aperture decided to rebuild it database of 400gb 3 hours before roll over, had to fish a photo out of the library in finder then a resize and bed, with hindsight i should have just gone to bed and missed the challenge.

This is my first challenge, so I told myself I'd be happy if I at least scored 5.0 and/or around the 50th percentile. So far I'm doing better than I hoped.

I probably should stop entering last minute ideas lol..

I have noticed quite a few entries have nothing to do with the title of the chosen book at all, so can only assume those entries fit the books story instead ?? evn though that wasn't the challenge so a bit strange.. i mean if the viewer hasn't read the book they won't get the connection will they.

Challenges like this are pretty much extra freestudies, since you can find title to fit just about anything. Song title/lyrics challenges are that way as well.

True,, but free studies titles don't have to have a major connection where as a theme like book titles clearly means the title of the image should connect with the photo for the viewer, not just the photographer..when the title clearly has no connection to the photo at all (for the viewer) it kinda doesn't meet the challenge lol

anyway, just my view on it.. lol

Wow Osiris, wtg!

Meanwhile I'm rocking a solid mid-5 score, yayyyy...*sigh*

Started ok, climbed the past several hours and is now retreating lol

Thanks snaffles!

I agree about the theme, I did find some of pictures didn't clearly present the theme and that, for me at least, effects how I vote. I found in general, with Flickr competitions, at least, the more closely related the picture is to the theme, the better it fares.

I keep in mind the theme for sure, but I rarely give a bad quality photo (even if it very cutely, humorously plays the theme) a higher score than a photo of superior technical/aesthetic quality, as this is... after all... Digital Photography Challenge, not "dramatic interpretation of words to pics challenge." :) THAT BEING SAID!... If the less quality photo is well thought out, humorous, interesting, marketable, etc... then absolutely it will score high from me. I am just saying that just because someone did their book homework on a title and took a shot that includes key elements of the book's plot and took a picture of it... doesn't mean it's a superior Digital Photograph than one that is not so strictly chosen/shot. If that makes sense?

My .02

Good luck everyone!

Nick
