There are some very funny, inventive takes on 'dada'. Great idea for a challenge!
10/02/2017 10:11:24 AM · #3
I agree! This was always an intriguing genre to me. It's like if you say "I get it!" ... then clearly, you don't ;P HEHE

Low 5's, but I didn't expect a lot out of it.

I do have the same opinion after viewing the rather bizzare range of images (rightfully so, IMHO) as I did when I started researching and following the threads about Dada.

Insanity.

None of it makes any sense to me. Even now.

I was hoping... once I saw the entries that it would all suddenly become clear to me.

Nope.

May the oddest thing win. *rolleyes*

I think you've nailed it exactly -- it's not supposed to "make sense." I think if your initial response is, "Huh? Why is *this* in an 'art' gallery?" the piece will have achieved its desired result.

People keep saying that, but...

HOW does one shoot something that doesn't make sense?

WHY is Dadaism even a "thing"... when it only last for about ten years?

WHY are we even thinking about it... much less shooting for it?

Makes no sense to me... Still.

Well, are you saying that all the entries "made sense" to you, or that you don't know how they went about making their image? I'll certainly be glad to explain the reasoning behind my entry once the voting is over ...

NOTHING makes sense to me anymore...

It's still a thing because it still isn't clear to you.

Well, then you've out-done some three thousand years of philosophical, scientific, and religious contemplation -- maybe you can write a book explaining it and we can all go home ... :-)

My Book:

Dadaism doesn't make sense.

Find something else.

Oh! You've quickly found Surrealism.

THAT makes sense.

Carry on.

You're so right, as proven by Walt Disney and television commercials, which use Surrealism all the time, but never Dada.

I don't know which is worse, the glacial pace of voting or the low scores. Both are equally depressing.

At least I know that I voted fairly, and generously...You have given an average score of 5.8205.

Perhaps it's time to take a break from entering challenges.

....anndddd...having just seen my score take yet another hit....yeah. Definitely time to leave.

Come on... that's a bad excuse. Leaving because of a bad score.
Be happy when the score is great and don't care when the score is bad. I always try to find out why a picture is doing badly...If many voters gave it a low vote, well figure it out yourself.
I enter EVERY challenge just because I love taking pictures. Always "trying" to fit the challenge with an appealing image and I never go for the brown, and when it's scoring low just accept it. The more serious / emotion/ skills/ and input in a picture will resonate with better scores.
My dada was not a challenge that I felt confident with,,, hence the result

I am not expecting much more. Did my best and move on to the next challenge...

Thanks for the support, Georges. I've been in a bit of a funk recently, it comes and goes. Won't be the first I've grumbled about a bad score, and these days I am much better about sloughing off the ones that didn't work and moving on.

Where are all the voters? This is pretty pathetic just 32 votes and just 6 hours to go. Is everyone afraid to vote on this challenge or something?
