It always feels good when a picture you yourself like, but doesn't do well, gets a couple favourites.

not sure what a "favourite" is, but this is my lowest scoring shot that got a favorite: ;-)

I really hated this one too.

4.6, 2 favs. I believe it scored low because many people wished he was dead. ;-)

My Second lowest scoring image. 4.8 I got 2 favourites.
My wife will kill me for bringging this up into the light again but I still think it's a decent image if not technically so good, at least on an artistic level

Favorites are important. I often go thru my favorites, many of them represent the style I wish I had. My lowest scoring image got one fav, I like to think by someone with a great sense of humor. Out of 25 photos picked as a fav by someone, 9 of them were in a challenge.

Quite strange, the person who marked this as a favourite has only commented on one photo, this one. He has only marked one photo as a favourite, this one. He has never entered a challenge or voted.


I would really like to know what it is with DPCers and blown highlights. It's almost an automatic "OMG! BLOWN HIGHLIGHTS! BAD!!!" They never, with a few exceptions, even stop to consider that it was used on purpose for impact.

Alas, trying to teach them such things is fruitless too, I think. hehe.

This is where I learned something. Don't put fun but technically imperfect studio shots of toddlers in a Free Study! lol.

hah do people actually do that?? That's ridiculous. I'm proud of my crappy shots :P

And Karen, if 5.1 is your lowest shot in 178 challenges that's quite a feat!

I've only gotten 1 fav in a challenge, and that was my highest scoring...

But! I have received a fav in the current 100 year old challenge--and I never dreamed that that shot would ever get a fav! I thought it was a nice, but dull, shot.
03/15/2009 02:15:01 PM · #22
Yeah, Paul, I loved that atom bomb/mushroom shot! Actually surprised to see I hadn't favorite'd it b/c it is a memorable shot. And Karen, if 5.1 is your lowest shot in 178 challenges that's quite a feat!
