I actually voted high on these two images for the "wow" factor. As great "photos" they are great "Photoshops" as well. If the scoring was on some sort of scale, second place woudl score higher on composition and first place would eat it on post processing. I am pretty sure there's nothing in the wild or even in zoos that looks close to what these images portray, but their appeal and "wow" factor are without doubt. Nice job!!

Very nice job on the winning photos! They are great. I wish i would have made mine bigger. I came in 2nd to last, but I still have a lot to learn

Joking aside, Ivory hs also set a new record for the Canon 300D (Digital Rebel) and also for the lens used.

Alexsaberi reclaimed the highest scoring 5D image and the highest scoring image for the 70-200 F4 L

Records broken all round!

(SC, can someone do the linky things so you can click on the lenses/cameras etc).

I gave it the 1 for bad lighting, poor composition and boring subject.

Sorry.

It was probably someone who voted DNMC because they thought it was a zoo shot. If so, that person only embarrassed himself/herself in the process. Regardless, the lone vote was steamrolled by people who appreciated a great photo. :-)

Seriously!!!! Some low scores are so ridiculous that you almost wish site council could just kick them off the site for blatant troll voting.

These ribbon winners were so deserving of the highest rates scores in dpc history -- in my opinion, the are certainly some of the most phenomenal photos in dpc history! As well as some of the other top finishers! This was a breathtaking challenge!

For further comparison (down here where the masses hope to score <g>), even scoring a 6.000 only secured 83rd place on the 62nd percentile. I wonder if that isn't the lowest placing 6+ image ever.

Congrats Ivory, you deserved every bit of that 8.3 score, and to all the other first pagers too; great job.

Well this was a most stunning group of images, and an absolute joy to vote on! The astounding thing, to me, is that Three images scored over 7.5, yet did not earn a ribbon <boggle>. Wonderful work, people!

Btw, is there an easy way to figure out the highest scoring shots that didn't even get an honorable mention?
