Could be worse! I'm pretty happy (one comment said it should be front page and compared the shot to one of a famous artist....might be a stretch but it made me feel good!)

I still have only 87 votes. I'm surpised, especially since there was a high (250+) entry count.

Go ahead. Have yourself a looksee and a vote. It will be worth your while. Promise.

not dreaming of front page, i'd be perfectly happy finishing in the top 10%. would be a first for me.

but wow, saturday morning, only 93 votes. 5.6xx

Nice thought anyway


Durning the voting of Missed Focus I, everyone was crying for the low scores, but in the end, one had to be above 6.0 to enter top 20. According to it, one may be above 6.0 to enter top 40 because of the double entries. It may also apply to Peanuts.

I find it interesting how few votes there are at this point in the week. I already have more votes on my Other Art Forms entry. Seems that your average voter just can't get into voting on a bunch of blurry photos.

The score and comments on my "Missed Focus" image make me want to emulate "The Scream" Most of the negative comments suggest I "missed the focus". D'oh!

I predict it will be hard for some voters to give these the props they deserve as tack sharp tends to be the preference of many.

I thought this counted toward the DPL scores, but I guess I was wrong, since I saw one of my team mate's images. When does it start back up?

For me...
You have rated 272 of 275 images (99%) in this challenge.
You have commented on 71 images (26%) in this challenge.
You have given an average score of 6.3235.

Good work everyone.


You purposefully missed mine while commenting. LOL


I guess you didn't get a 9 or 10 from me then...


WOW! Since I DID get a comment from you, I'm honored. Thank you.
If you got a comment, you haven't necessarily gotten a 9 or 10. If you didn't get a comment, you for sure didn't get a 9 or 10....


Well, I still enjoyed the comment. :)

I definitely admit to having a hard time voting! The only solid "rule" I've developed for myself so far is that if it hurts my eyes to look at, it doesn't get a good score.

It's been interesting to see that some blurry images are pleasing whereas others really do just cause eye strain.

After an initial pass of voting, I'll definitely have to go back and adjust the scores. An emphasis on blur turns one of the major DPC conventions on its head, to say nothing of my own, and for me, it's just too difficult to vote well to do it all in one go.

Member Challenge: Missed Focus II - Open for voting.
Open Challenges: Peanuts - Open for submissions.
Other Art Forms - Open for submissions.

i'd check yours and their team membership?

argh is right!! I keep running into photos where the focus is where it should be! That to have the other item in focus would be silly. But I like the shot...
