I turned on scores and am delighted to see my one (1) current challenge entry is above my average! This is a rare treat in the past few months. It is also likely to be the latest in my Almost-But-Not-Six Collection. Had one of those last week. Have had a few this year. That mildly frustrating (but still very very good in my book) 5.9something that dances ever so teasingly into 6.000x territory then drops right back down with a little "nyah nyah" whispered across the wires.

Anyway, world's tiniest violin plays for me and my Almost-But-Not-Six Collection for 2010:

You're welcome to join in if you wish. I'll add the new one after the challenge closes. Assuming it keeps the 5.9 status - there's always the possibility it'll drop a bit below that; then it doesn't count. :-)

I'll join the pity party. This was the closest I had in 2010 to your situation. It ended at 5.8, but was above 6 for a good part of the week. And I was so disappointed because I was so proud of this shot. Oh well, I've had quite a few 6s this year, which is very abnormal for me. Maybe I'm learning... naa.

Well, this was 5.9 if rounded to one decimal point ... the closest I've come this year ...

I don't claim there's any brilliance here; both skipped around 6 in the voting and settled back to 5.9x
07/29/2010 10:48:44 PM · #5
I thought this deserved a 6+ but with the competition in that challenge, it was not surprising.

I could have broken into the 6's if I had a better model :)

Instead, I had to settle for a 5.9905 in a self portrait.

I was sooooooooo excited and thought this was going to break 6, especially as my second entry. But no.

If I get a 5.9+ but not a 6, I ALWAYS blame it on the scrubber!

Deb's only talking about during 2010!

Can't join in myself, as I didn't have any 5.9 scores this year. 5.89, but not 5.9

That's because you screwed up and had too many sixes. And a seven. So you forfeited your right to a couple of solid 5.9+-but-not-6's. Maybe next year if you're not so greedy on the darn sixes!

no 5.9x yet... though my moo cow was in the 6 range then dropped to 5.89 or something lol

I think all of these, as well as some that didn't stay over 5.9, teased me by flirting in the 6 range before slipping.

side note: the original was a horrible DNMC and scored 3.4xx, so the 5.9 was very welcome, as well placed 2nd on my front page...

I have had two in this range for the year (i haven't entered that much). Looking at the others that people have posted, it is a great reminder that there are many very good images in this range....
