Criteria: Exclusive challenge for those who have finished in the bottom three in a challenge at least twice at least two browns in their brown belt.

Description: When shooting and selecting an image to this challenge, be inspired by the following reflection: "if they didn't like those, they're sure going to HATE this!!" ("those" refers to your images that have previously been beatified with brown ribbons.)

Window: Two week or one month submission window. (I not sure what is standard; I have no strong feelings here)

Editing: Standard editing.

I would really like this to be fun. An unwinding kind of challenge. I understand many won't want to participate. But it could be fun all the same :-)

I decided to take this away from the masters FS since it got some attention.

Make DPC brown again!!

I'm not sure I'm happy to admit it, but that's one master challenge I qualify for.

Yes, but you've got four real ribbons as well. I haven't got any, just a few honourable mentions.

Theee of those were accidental and unexpected. I have been much more successful with ribbons when I stopped trying. So I recommend you only use your smart phone for now on! :-)

I hate my smart phone and almost never use its camera so that's not likely to happen. I've been entering a number of photos taken with a point and shoot lately though and some of those have done a lot better than the photos taken with my 7D or OMD.

That's SO hard to believe :-( I think of you as one of the very most interesting talents we have :-)

I think they make pants you can wear for accidental and unexpected browns...

It's pretty easy to count if you want to know ...

Ok tell me how many I have, too lazy to go count em all! I think upwards of 6 but no more than 10.

ETA: I have 8 browns. Overqualified!

i have 2!
02/01/2017 10:54:03 PM · #17
Turns out I have 6 of them...
02/01/2017 11:06:01 PM · #18
After coming in 'next to last' any number of times, after some 800+ entries, I finally got one. And then another.
And then resumed my previous pattern.
So, me too!

With humiliation, I am sad to report I have 11 (eleven) brown ribbons. All of those were sincere attempts to score well. The results are a product of my occasional non-compliance with groupthink. I often march to a different drummer. That said, I have no idea regarding this challenge suggestion. I don't think I can produce an image which would score well in a brown contest! I could become much more interested if the winner of the Brown Masters FS is the image which finishes in last place.

How can one find so quickly how many of these or of those ribbons one has?
I personally don't keep track of it. Must be the info somewhere

Go to the list of challenges entered on your profile page, and sort the list using the "percentile" column going from lowest to highest -- a 0% ranking should = Brown Ribbon.

On you portfolio where your entries are, click on the little arrow for % to who lowest percentage first. 0%=brown!
